How to Save Images from Firefox Addons Website

Written by Pavan Kumar on December 18, 2008


Hope you all know about saving protected images / flash. Till now, I thought the same way is applicable universally and can be used everywhere. But today, it was a new experience while writing a post hiding title bar of firefox. The firefox addons website has a different approach about providing images on website.

They use Lightbox javascript for a better user experience and saving webpage real estate. Have a look at the image below and you will understand.

You might be wondered to know you cannot find "Save Image As" in the context menu. How to save such images? Anyway, again make use of copy protected image saving tutorial, but with a little added step.

Save the image as you do for any protected images. Now, goto the saved image location and you will notice that the image is now saved with a .htm extension. Change the extension to .png and you are done. Why PNG? Reason in the image below. I guess all images in their site are in png format.
