Saving pictures in Firefox

    One of the things I have noticed about Firefox is that when I save an
    image from a web page, Firefox downloads the image from the server
    again.

    Surely this is quite unnecessary when the image is already cached
    somewhere either in memory or on the PC's hard drive, as it is necessary
    to download the image once before formatting the onscreen display.

    For me it only seems to do that if it hasn't completed loading it. Once it's
    completly loaded if you save it it does it from it's cache.
