How do I save an image when there is a link attached?

At times I run across an image that I want to "save" but it has a link attached to it, usually a link to the site's home page.

When the link is there I am not given an option to save the image, just options relating to the link.

How can I save such an image?

Chosen solution

Links can use "inline" images or "background" images.

Inline images should appear on the right-click menu whether they are linked or not. (For example, the picture to the left of this reply should have both a link section and an image section.)

Background images may not appear in that scenario (for example, the Firefox logo at the top of this page). You can save those images using

Tools > Page Info > Media

but it does take a little time to down-arrow through the list to find the one you want to save.

Thanks for replying.

I tested this on this page and it shows the image names. However, when highlighting any of the images there is no way to save the image when rightclicking the image name.

Do I have to copy each link and then put it in the address bar?

Oops. I now see that every time I click on a link it shows the image below. Now I can save what I want. Tnanks.
