User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040219
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040219

Unlike all other browsers I know Mozilla does not allow the user to download
a single picture from a html page by pressing the right mouse button and
choosing from the context menue 'save picture as'.
Mozilla does allow to save whole pages, but this is overkill for me. I'm
only interested in downloading single pictures.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a page with a jpeg picture on it
2. select it by clicking on it or at leats locate the cursor over it
3. use the right mouse button: there is no 'save picture as' option, also
   in none of the pulldown menues like 'File', 'Edit', ... Neither is it
   possible to enable this function through configuration of the browser. 

Actual Results:  
nothing - functionality is missing

Expected Results:  
allow me to download  the picture

no crash, evrything fine - except that the function is missing

Right click brings up "Save Image As" among other options.

Mozilla has no function that will pop up when you hover over an image for saving
or anything else.  That's an IE thing.
