firefox when saving tumblr(amazonaws) images saves it as html. i know workarounds but what should i do to make it save as image file
firefox saves any image file from amazonaws (like tumblr images)as html even when you click "save image as". eg: click on any tumblr image to open in new window and try "save image as"
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 9.0 r262
- Java(TM) Plug-in 1.6.0_16
- The default plugin handles plugin data for mimetypes and extensions that are not specified and facilitates downloading of new plugins.
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/184.108.40.206
ofcouse, i can manually change everytime from htm to "all file types" and then type the extension , which is bit uncool. Chrome manages to save it as image files . Do not know about IE
just wanted to add that this is in firefox 4 , mac or win. was also present in firefox 3
If you have file-extensions on you could change the .htm to .jpg when you choose what to save it as. In some cases you can also save images by just dragging the image itself onto your desktop/any folder. Alternatively if neither work, try this:
- Right-click the image.
- Choose "View Image Info" in the menu -> a window will pop up.
- A bit above the image-preview, to the right, there is a button saying "Save as..."
- Click the "Save as..."-button and now you can save it as an image-file without problem!

I found the easiest way to save images off of tumblr is to press STRG+S, Firefox then saves the image and not an HTML document. Nevertheless it should work by rightclicking and choosing "save as".
What the heck is STRG+S?
just incase you guys downloaded hundreds to thousands of pics in .htm or .html u can convert them with this tumblr html to jpg app made just for this problem. Tumblr html to jpg application check it out.. it works for me

@blueboxers thanks for a detailed reply. i am aware of this but it is also very cumbersome. pressing cntrl-s seems to be a quicker solution.

press "ctrl+S" together and the file save as window opens - usually showing the correct .jpg extension,
