Description

Originally part of bug 1294490, in this bug we will land the turning on of WebP support by default. It will still ship in nightly 65 soon however the fuzzing team would like the opportunity to fuzz before we turn it on by default.

Note to MDN writers:

I have added a note to the Fx65 rel notes to cover this:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Firefox/Releases/65#Other

We still need to document this in other appropriate places on MDN. In fact, I think it'd make sense to add a proper reference guide to images formats supported on the web. This work is outlined on this card: https://trello.com/c/KbbXqkmA/145-add-improve-documentation-on-image-audio-and-video-file-formats
