I notice that when I am downloading a file, the percentage of the downloaded file on the Firefox download box would be slighty reduced whenever I save a picture.
what does this suggest?
I am able to save the pictures after disconnecting from the internet.

I don't really understand what is happening here.

This is meant as a continuation for the Mozilla firefox tweak thread,
http://forum.technical-assistance.co.uk/mozilla-firefox-tweak-vt239.html Please revert the posts in this thread back to the original one. Thank You.

I notice that when I am downloading a file (through right click save link as kinda download), the percentage of the earlier mentioned downloaded file shown on the Firefox download box would be slightly reduced whenever I save a picture (when surfing the web).
what does this suggest?
I am able to save the pictures after disconnecting from the internet.

I hope you get the idea.

It is not possible to merge topics back together.

Even so, I still don't understand the issue.

whenever I save a picture online (right click, save picture as), Firefox gives the impression that it is redownloading the picture file instead of from cache

I notice that when I am downloading a file (through right click save link as kinda download), the percentage of the downloading file shown on the Firefox download box would be slightly reduced when I save a picture (right click, save picture as), indicating some bandwidth is used for the redownloading of the picture file.

OK, I think I understand the issue, however this is not really a problem. Firefox is just showing that it is copying the file from the cache to where you want it - just like explorer shows a "copying files" window when copying files from one place to another.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118487

I've found this link which seem to indicate otherwise. Firefox re - downloads the image instead of copying in from cache when online.

If it's a bug in Firefox, then there is nothing you can do about it until the developers fix the problem Mr. Green

OK, this looks like an issue with Firefox. Nothing I can suggest will fix this.
