Firefox Screenshot Title Issue

When I used to take screenshots, they would be automatically named with the date, time, and part of the text captured regardless of language. A few days ago and with no reason I can discern, it now saves any non-English screenshots with something like this "Screenshot 2024-06-23 a[...].png" instead of "Screenshot 2024-06-22 at 08-02-28 Politics Policy Polit[...].png" (usual for English text and what I used to get with all languages).

Which means I have to manually rename screenshots. Does anyone know how I can fix this because I am working on a project with lots of screenshots for topics from different languages?

You can set screenshots.browser.component.enabled to false in about:config to revert to the old behavior.

Hello Taking screenshots https://firefox-source-docs.mozilla.org/devtools-user/taking_screenshots/index.html can be useful to you ? for illustration purposes https://www.youtube.com/embed/XE1MpIMi594 - https://www.youtube.com/embed/optjk7BPOu0

That is the function I am already using which has the issue.

FF 126 worked as expected, giving a "save" filename as "screenshot----time-----FULL details ect" .png

127 update broke this to give only partial details, ending in [.....] and the "download" box now pops up at the top of the screen.

How to revert to original behaviour as I use screenshot extensively in copying genealogy site information to my computer.

Firefox 127 enabled a new screenshot component (controlled by screenshots.browser.component.enabled). This includes shortening long page titles to prevent issues with saving the screenshot to a deeply nested folder structure that exceeds the OS maximum.

I see that. However, I am looking for a way to fix it so it can go back to the way it used to.

Sir, you are a genius - problem solved. Firefox now back up to date and screenshot titles saving as they used to. Thank you very much, Glenn

Just a warning - this workaround seems to disable all of the new screenshot features (like taking screenshots of about: pages or SVGs), not just the filename change
