"Strange downloads of jpgs from Reddit using Firefox"
Website: https://www.reddit.com/r/VintageRacing/comments/9vouo2/drifting_round_the_corner/ I download this picture from Reddit and it has .jpg extension. Will not open in Win10 Photo app or in ACDSee 20? If I change extension to .png I get same result. If I change extension to .webp it works??? Same behaviour exists on all my desktops and laptops. But not every picture?? Some other websites too, Chive, for instance. Is this coming from the websites? Changes to Reddit? Updates to Win10? Updates to Firefox? Virus? Running latest Norton, keep Win10 updated etc. This behaviour is recent, maybe 1-3 months. If I use Edge download is fine. Microsoft sabotage? Attached picture is my download that doesn't open. Does it in yours??

180 & 180 & 1800.
Seems it all depends on "what" you download.
And I guess I can't really say just what "all" might
be at this point.
This "full size" jpg, 1800 KB is this:
The "cut down" size, 180 KB, is something like:
(That has a "session" part, so might not be valid to
Note the "crop" parameter.
Note also ".jpg" and "&auto=webp")
It looks like OS also plays into the picture.
With a quick look, Win10 got webp, Win7, for whatever reason
I'm thinking that the original source file is only jpg, &
that is 1800 KB.
What is served, displayed on the web page depends on
And that is a cropped, lessor quality, then the original
source file, & will be in either jpg or webp formats.
The webp that (OP) attached here is 80 KB.
The webp that I just downloaded is 200 KB.
200 KB webp is fairly easily > 80 KB webp.
1800 KB jpg is still > 200 KB webp.
