All of a sudden images i use to drag from a browser to the desktop are no longer .jpg, rather they are .avif files and i can not get Photoshop to open them. Is this something Adobe is aware of and will they fix this in the next upgrade? Since its now an industry standard, Photoshop is behind the times...

With the current version (23.5.1) you should not need a plug in to open webp. It is directly supported

However, on my mac using Safari its a .webp file, & on chrome, a .avif file and that plug in is for Windows, so what do Mac users use?

There are plugins for WEBP too, a more popular format.
