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?

How do I capture & save a video which I've seen on a website, and is now (probably) in a temp file somewhere?

I sometimes see a video on a website that I'd like to save. I'd expect to click on it, and hit [copy], and [paste] it in a folder. Or [Save as...], and give it a name and address. But no: no can do. Is there a utility or plug-in I need, or is there a Firefox feature I'm unaware of? I'm running Windows Vista, on a dialup, so once I download something I'd rather keep it than do it again.

Zoom is driving me nuts! I use multiple tabs and windows, and to maximize screen space I need to make some pages very small. In IE each window can be zoomed independently- but with firefox they all change if you change any window's zoom. I've tried NoSquint add-on and it adds site-specific zoom, which is still not what I need. Surely there's an add-on that allows each window to have its own zoom level.

I know how to clear my cache so that it doesn't load up with old email addresses, however I would like to know what to shut off so that I have to fill out forms each time. It can remember some delicate information at times and I would like that to stop, not just keep happening as soon as I fill out a new form. Thanks!

The past week, every time I click on anything - an e-mail in gmail, something on a website I want to go to, the arrow to scroll on a page, the Mac colorwheel comes on and it takes forever. I finally got so frustrated I switched back to my old Safari. But this is a new problem, and I didn't do anything to the computer to cause it. My internet connection is fine (cable) as Safari works great. So what's going on? (I have version 3.5.9)
