Like bug 136110 for Seamonkey.

It often occurs that I only want to view an image's filename or extension, and
bringing up the properties window or viewing the image by itself to look at the
address bar is overkill. Netscape 4.x had the image filename in the context
menu. What are the objections against bringing it back?

I have made a patch, but don't know how good it is. This is my first patch for
Mozilla/Firefox, and I'm not much of a CVS wizard, either.

Reproducible: Always

Patch to add the filename after "View image"

This doesn't shorten the filename if it's too long. Just let me know if this is
worth putting some more effort into, or if it's going to be WONTFIXED. I
wouldn't know who to ask for review, either.

URL removed (unrelated to the bug).

See attachment 107738 [details] for a image of this in netscape.

(I don't know if 'attachment' works like 'bug', heh)

Personally I like the idea of this bug showing the image filename in this manner.
