(This is a specific instance of a problem from there.) HTML based background images cannot be saved via Page Info / Media. (All other images can.) See: http://www.mozillazine.org/talkback/read.php?f=4&i=4543&t=4536 http://www.mozillazine.org/talkback/read.php?f=4&i=4548&t=4536 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to the target URL. 2. Right-click on the page and select View Page Info. 3. Click on the Media tab. 4. With the first entry, "tile_gif.gif" highlighted, click on Save As. Actual Results: Nothing happens. Expected Results: A download dialogue should have appeared. This only happens with HTML based background images.
Same on Mac OS 9.1, Build 2002110408
Same things happens with every webpage that I've visited while using Mozilla 1.4a today. Odd thing is that I was able to download images a few days ago with no problems and the download manager always came up. Today, whenever I right click to "save image as" or a link to save a image file to my hard drive, I either get that my system can't save the image that it's looking for due to an error with the cached memory or nothing happens.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that the same bug/problem occurs while using Mozilla 1.4a for Windows XP and Red Hat Linux 7.2 (kernel 2.4.20).
After debating whether or not this issue will or will not be fixed and finding out that it not only applies to images, but to nearly any document that is to be saved; I've decided to downgrade to Mozilla 1.3 as the problem does not seem to show up there. Sorry.
Changing reference URL since old one no longer exists. Note that step 4 in "Steps to Reproduce" should now read "With the second entry, 'tile_gif.gif' highlighted, click on Save As."

I can reproduce this with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040307 and Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040302 Firefox/0.8. Commenting because of the last non-dup comment's age.
Not going to block for this. A well tested and fully reviewed patch would be considered for final.

At the moment nothing works there ... see Bug 239472.

Not blocking 1.0 but would be /really/ nice (and not hard, right?) to get a patch for this, since it's essentially non-working UI.
Firefox specific ? Now that bug 229441 - Background images are not shown in Media tab (Page Info) has been fixed it would be nice to see this one fixed too
There is a patch, but daniel brooks is asked to review. Is this correct?

Comment on attachment 154876 [details] [diff] [review] patch Bad UI and a reviewed patch, can this get on the train?
Comment on attachment 154876 [details] [diff] [review] patch Removing approval request. The patch in bug 239472 seems to include this patch among other fixes.
*** Bug 260815 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Isnt this then a duplicate of bug 239472?
If they are the same, it would be more accurate to say that bug 239472 is the duplicate. This one was filed much earlier, also has a patch submitted for review, and has more votes. However, if you look at the summary of bug 239472 it's specific Steps to Reproduce *excludes* the specific case that this bug is targetting. So, no, there is no direct duplication.
(However, it appears as if the patch proposed in bug 239472 might fix this bug also...)
Basicaly, bug 239472 was a regression after the check in of a patch from bug 196971. Bug 239472 was only for Seamonkey. The patch I attached to bug 239472 make page info (in both Seamonkey and Firefox) send referrer when saving media. I included in this patch the fix for saving of background images. So this bug isn't a duplicate, but the patch for bug 239472 will fix this bug too.
Can we get a milestone set on this bug, so we have something to look forward to?
Patch 162252 from bug 239472 has been checked in, so this bug is fixed.
