- by The_Original_Alex_Portnoy, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5Fundamentally, I like webp, but display considerations have to be accounted for. Irvanview64, with all the plug-ins installed, still doesn't play webp for me, and if I transfer images to my phone, I'm not sure how they'll display there. I asked r/firefox on reddit, and this extension got two quick recommendations. I tested it on Vanity Fair and the images I saw in webp were now jpegs. It works, and that's all I can ask for.
- by Moltres Rider, 4 months agoRated 1 out of 5Does not even deserve 1 star. False advertisement. It DOES NOT strip images of webp. EVERY PNG and JPG file STILL downloads as webp. I tried like 20 different images from like 15 websites that are clearly JPG and PNG, ALL try to save as webp.
Developer responseposted 2 months agoWhen you enable the extension (stop sign showing) the Accept header should no longer list image/webp. You can check on https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/jstest.php When you disable the extension (yellow warning triangle is showing), the extension doesn't strip out image/webp.
If yours doesn't work either way, I can think of two possible reasons:
(1) You are using a private window but didn't enable the extension to run in private windows. In this case, the stop sign/triangle toolbar button will be missing. See the following article to fix this problem: https://support.mozilla.org/kb/extensions-private-browsing
(2) There is a conflict between this extension and another extension or proxy that also modifies the Accept header. This could be hard to track down.
- by Firefox user 16465818, 10 months agoRated 5 out of 5I have image.webp.enabled set to false, I have image/webp;q=0 in my image.http.accept, but sadly some web sites still tried to shove this Google crap down my throat…
With this extension — not anymore!
WebP and other "open" formats and codecs by Google shouldn't exist in the first place.
Thank you for doing god's work with this extension!
