Rename images as I download them ("Save As" dialog)?

In Firefox for Android is it possible to download an image and rename it right away?

I am following a lot of webcomics on a regular basis and want to save favorite pages, i.e. the images. In order to be able to organize these images by comic later, I need the ability to rename the files. Switching to the download directory for renaming for every single file however would be highly intrusive during webcomic reading, so I need a "Save As" style dialog.

Dolphin provides such a dialog when choosing "Save Image", but I'd rather use firefox for the encrypted synchronization features.

There is no plans for such UI on Firefox for Android. Might make a good extension though.

The link only explains taking screenshots on the desktop. I am asking about Android. Sadly on my phone the common shortcuts like Power+Home, Power+VolumeDown don't work and even screenshot apps can't find a root-less method for taking a screenshot.

My best guess was to attach a screenshot of the corresponding functionallity in Windows.

This had been asked in #792670 too (from 03/2011). My workaround for this is to use Google Chrome, which has a "Save link" option (but no progress bar) or Opera (which does have a progress bar).

@cb0gus: "save link" only helps when there is a link to that image file -- which nowadays rarely applies. They are almost always embedded with an IMG tag and if they link to anything, they usually link to another webpage, not to the imagefile itself.
