Save Images

Save Images saves the images from the current tab page, from the cache, to a specified location, with either the images original file name or a file name that you specify. The size, dimensions and types of images saved may be chosen, with options if the file size is unknown or if duplicate files are found. Images may be either saved from the current tab, left or right of the current tab or from all tabs. Also, all or selected links or image links in the current page can be opened in a new tab or multiple tabs. There are shortcut keys for some of the menu options.

Save Images can be accessed from either the Firefox Tools menu, the context menu (right click in page) or from a button placed on a toolbar (recommended – requires placement by user). Clicking the button will save the images using the Option “Default Save Action”. Click the arrow next to the button to display a menu for more options.

On a very sad note, one of our blogger friends, Cherlyn Cochrane has lost her Great Grandfather, Robert Phillip Ramey. Mr. Ramey was 91 years old and passed on December 5th. Please at your earliest convenience, stop by Cherlyn’s site and pay your respects to her. She wrote a poem, dedicated it to him and posted it today. She also gives a little bit of information about her great grandfather and the impact his life had on her family and the world. Thank you for showing Cherlyn kindness at this time of grieving.



A face we love is missing
a voice we know is still
a place is vacant in all our hearts,
that only you could fill.
Tears in our eyes,
they wont go away,
we wish you were here with us today.
We know you never ment to hurt us
or make us cry.
Our love for you will always stay,
if only things didn’t end this way.
But you’ve brought it to the final end,
we will always remember you as our friend.
We love you
Rest in paradise till we meet again.

    What a beautiful tribute. My heart goes out to Cherlyn. I’m loving your Firefox add-on posts. I’m an add-on addict and didn’t know about these. Soon I’m going to be 50% screen, 50% toolbar ha ha. I need a bigger monitor.

      I really like Firefox and the folks that make the add-ons to make Firefox better. Now, if I could just stop calling it Foxfire I would be happy!

    My email must be acting up, because I haven’t received any email notifications for any of my blog subscriptions.

    But I did remember to stop by today, and I have to say, Tom, you are extremely sweet. Thank you so much for your condolences, it warms my heart that people from around the world have given me and my family such kind words of support in these difficult times. It makes this new chapter, and the loss of a dear family member much more bearable. I am very greatful to know people like you and Blaga, and all the other supportive, great people I have met through our blogs. And though great distances separates us, it’s moments like these that make me feel like the world seem like a smaller, less lonely place. Thank you so much my friend.

      Arg, so sleepy – last line meant to read “makes me feel like the world is a smaller, less lonely place” or something like that. Sorry. Thank you very much again :)

      You and your family are very welcome. Despite the distances, oceans, wars, racism and borders that separate us, we are all still in one human family. Although we didn’t know him, it is still our loss too.

    I really enjoyed your informational posts these days. Very kind of you to mention about Cherlyn here, again, courage Cherlyn, may his soul rest in peace!

      Thank you Blaga. It was a challenge getting all the add-on information together but not adding my two cents made it easier to post the information.
