Please provide example URL for this. Also, does "Show as background image"
appear in the menu? Some images background images and the "Save As" options will
not appear for them.

I am NOT trying to save pictures or images .... I am trying to save a file
download with the "save target" (file) procedure, the same right click procedure
that a person uses on Netscape, Opera and IE browsers, to download files
(applications, programs, etc.).

The Firefox equivalent of this is "Save Link As". Do you see that in the context
menu?
The menu is "Save Link As..." and it appears for me and everyone else. If you
cannot see this then one of your extensions is probably causing problems and you
should go to the support forums for help.
