... whereby (null) is actually blank. This results in an invisible file (.jpg - files starting wit a '.' are hidden by default on OS X) stored on the desktop. Subsequent drops of images from the same server result in -1.jpg, -2.jpg, etc.

STR:

1. load this large image:
   http://static.reuters.com/resources/assets/?d=20110317&t=1&i=fuku&w=&q=
2. drag to the desktop

AR: the file is saved as '(null).jpg' – with (null) being just blank.
ER: the file is saved as 'untitled.jpg' (with a -(digit) if multiple images are saved from the same source)


Tested with Gecko 1.9.2.16pre and Gecko 2.0pre (fx4rc).

Confirmed on multiple website sources when server loads image through img src= that uses a query and not a filename.

I just encountered the same issue, with this image: 
https://pco.zendesk.com/attachments/token/guotpvnrmfbm3eq/?name=Screenshot_2_26_13_10_03_AM.jpg

In this case, if instead of drag-and-dropping the image, I use File → Save Page As… (which should say “Save Image As…” in this context, but that’s a nit for another bug), then Fx sensibly offers the name “Screenshot_2_26_13_10_03_AM.jpg”.
