I am trying to download protected images from Flickr and other websites. I know there is an add on and I use to have it but since my upgrade I lost it and cannot remember what it was. Any help is appreciated in advance.

What do you mean by "protected" images? If you mean that right-clicking an image shows a notice instead of a menu, you could change the following setting:

orange Firefox button or classic Tools menu > Options > Content

Click the "Advanced" button to the right of Enable JavaScript, and uncheck the third checkbox "Disable or replace context menus"

Please note that when doing this, a site's right-click menu will open behind Firefox's menu. If you want to use the site's menu, press the Esc key once to clear Firefox's menu. For example, you might need to do this when choosing a point on a Google map.

You can also try to save the images via Tools > Page Info > Media in case they've overlayed the image with another, transparent, image.
