How do I save content (such as images) from the Firefox browser in Firefox OS?

Posted

I recently received my ZTE Open, and I was looking at customization options for the OS. First step: find a new background for the home screen. In order to do so I was trying to save an image (just something on imgur) but after the image was loading in the browser on the phone, I had no way of downloading / saving the image. In Android I would normally long-press on the image and it would give me the option to save-as, but not in FirefoxOS.

Is this something that I can do? If so, how?

It is not possible to download at this moment. You can download the picture and save it on the computer and then transfer it to a microSD card.

Add: I have also just filed a bug for this.
