Thread: FIREFOX CAN'T SAVE IMAGES ON RIGHT CLICK

  1. #1

    Cool FIREFOX CAN'T SAVE IMAGES ON RIGHT CLICK

    OPENSUSE 11.2 KDE - I love this distro , but a minor problem .......i am using firefox 3.6 version ,firefox doesn't show save window when i right click on a wallpaper or image and then I click save image button, so i have to do "CTRL+S" to save an image.this was an issue with the version 3.5.7 too.i thought upgrading from YaST would solve the problem , but it didn't.GOOGLE CHROME UNSTABLE, KONQUEROR & EPIPHANY BROWSERS DON'T HAVE THIS ISSUE..........

    With FF closed
    In file manager
    view hidden files

    look for .mozilla and rename it to .mozilla-old

    When you start FF it will be like new, use it without adding to it (extensions etc..) and see if it has the option to right click

    I have tried what you have told me to do,I got the new profile running , even then the same problem continues,I can see the same "Save Image As" button ,but when I click it the saving location window doesn't pop-up, same problem,I also have completely uninstalled and reinstalled it , even then the same issue is continuing , chrome,epiphany,konqueror , all are working fine.
    I love openSUSE 11.2, this is just a small bug, i suppose,all I have to do is press - CTRL+S, but I have the habbit of using the right click option often.
    please respond if you have any new solution...............

    Well, I'm experiencing that problem too. Launched Firefox from Konsole and saw some Gnome themes related warning messages. So I had to change the theme in System Settings -> Looks (naming might not be acurate, translating from spanish -> GTK styles and change the style to a working one.

    Good luck.

    @protagonistmohit

    I am confused by all your PM's and it is generally better to put you messages to me here so everyone can benefit.
    If you start a new profile and that didn't solve it, it's very odd if you ask me, because by default the FF settings would allow you to do this.

    Then you followed my advice to check 'Always ask where to save' and you said it worked and then it doesn't again.

    You are just missing something simple.

    I attach here your PM's

    THANKS FOR REPLYING, NO IT ISN'T , I HAVE SELECTED A DIFFERENT FOLDER AS THE SAVING LOCATION FOR MY OWN CONVENIENCE.BUT I DIDN'T USED TO HAVE THIS PROBLEM IN UBUNTU 9.04, 9.10 & MINT 8.0. WELL I WILL CLICK ON WHAT YOU HAVE SUGGESTED.ANY WAY APART FROM THIS GLITCH, openSUSE11.2(as this is my first SUSE distro) is awesome,way better than ubuntu series. I love KDE.
    THANKS AGAIN.
    IF THIS SOLVES THE ISSUE THEN I WILL INFORM YOU ABOUT IT.
    I have already told you you're a "GENIUS".
    Thanks issue resolved.
    With your suggestion, now FF shows the pop up window of saving location.
    Hats off to you.......
    Nope same problem ............ again sorry for troubling you again.
