I used to be able to hit save for web and would add .jpg extension everytime I saved it as a jpg. Now it highlights the entire file name (including the filename) so I have to manually add ".jpg" everytime before I save. Is there a way to add this feature? Photoshop used to do this automatically but now it doesn't...

With that setting Photoshop should add the correct extension anyway, so I am unsure what the problem is. 

Could you post a screenshot of the offending dialog window to clarify?

For example this is the dialog that appears. It used to highlight just "T2_ab" and not the .jpg extension as well. If I want to rename the file I have to manually type example.jpg instead of just being able to type example. Let me know if that makes sense thanks!

Ah, now I understand; I had thought the extension was missing altogether in your dialog window. 

But I get the same behaviour  (21.0.3 on Mac OS 10.15.2). 

 

No proper solution but arrow-left and cmd-shift-arrow-right (as many times as necessary to select the name up to the period) might be slightly more convenient than typing ».jpg«.
