Thread: firefox won't save images with rt-click

  1. #1

    Default firefox won't save images with rt-click

    11.3, firefox 3.6.8 and kde 4.4.4 r2.

    the right-click save image as does not bring up a dialog box. this seems to be an old problem going back to 11.2. found many suggestions but no fix that works. have i missed an update or patch to firefox or kde with my 11.3 install?

    Yes.

    Under Preferences > Applications
    Look for .jpg image or search and set it to always ask

    I asked this question in another topic. It's a KDE firefox problem. Use the keyboard shortcuts.

    A kde problem that doesn't exist in my kde for some reason?! @ewhite20: if you type jpg or png in the search field are they not there?

    If you rename .mozilla to .mozilla-old
    Does that enable it for you?

    for the search -- no, not there.

    i have not rewritten the .mozilla directory. i have rewritten the default profile (several times) in case something brought over from 11.1 caused the problem (passwords, bookmarks, plug-in, etc.) each time, the first save-as would work and then any following would not. just as reported in other threads.

    did stumble onto one thing - if you select View Image Info, there is a save-as button in that dialog box that does work.

    It was mentioned to be a kde issue.

    If that were the case, it would not just cause this in Firefox, so what about other browsers?
