Save Image Menu Item Doesn't Work on data/images #280
Your DownThemAll! and Browser Version and Language and Operating System
Because we don't yet have a webext version, which I know is difficult given the idiosyncrasies and lack of API, I have kept on Firefox 56 for this very reason as I want to be able to run the legacy version 3.0.8 until such time as a newer version is completed; which I truly hope you will do despite your feelings towards Mozilla right now and the busy life schedule.
Right click menu shows "Save Image with ..." when on a image and it works fine for just about all images, and you click it and the interface opens up and you name it or save it as default name, like always.
But I have found that if the image is rendered as a data/image, it is NOT grabbing it or recognizing it. Occasionally it will and save it as a index.(ext) but 99.99% of the time, nothing will happen, the interface doesn't kick in, despite obviously recognizing it as an image (given the menu option)
Steps To Reproduce
The easiest sample that I can direct you to, would be on the bing.com page, click on the bottom right button for image info and then when the page loads, you will see a smaller version of that image with a description and so on under it. Try to right click, you will see the option to save image with dta, and then click and nothing happens (almost always but as stated before occasionally it will, although extremely rare)
Let me know what else I can provide to help or test for you. Look forward to hearing from you, I really miss this feature. I think the simplest solution (not implying it is easy by any means) would be to detect if the uri has a data/image encoding and simply save that data as the image instead of trying to pull directly from a link like most resources dta is used to handle, just a humble thought.
Additional info such as log extracts
(apologies, due to the data/image content, it will be very long, so I used code to make it less space consuming, but the relevant parts are the beginning and and the end, I wasn't sure removing that would be helpful to you or not, so if you don't care, let me know and I will edit it out so)
Prior to Firefox auto updating me to 57 and 58 I noticed that DownThemAll would not recognize images rendered via a PHP script.
Since it looks like DownThemAll will not be released for current versions of Firefox for a while if at all, how do I roll back to a version that does work (56) and at least maintain bookmarks?
