    is it me or this browser is lacking some professionals touches?
    when I open a picture and I like it,I decide to save it on my PC...right click and choose Save Image As...but Mozilla won't take the pic from the cache and save it..it will download it again and then save it on the pc..this is anoying with 56K modem:( unlike IE6 it saves the pic from the cache...I am using the beta ver.1.3

    Wait for the page to COMPLETELY finish loading, then save the image.
    I'm on 56k too, so i know this works :p

    If you cant wait, then right click > view image, then save it.

    Might be because you are using beta. v1.3 is an official release now.
    Works OK for when when saving pics.........when the page is loaded.

    I am having other issues with it though. Doesn't seem as stable as previous versions. :(

    Saving pictures has always worked for me, I refuse to ever use IE, and I save wallpapers/webcomics/various images every day.

    Using rv:1.3 Gecko/20030312 at the moment.
