I have a window of firefox, with 150 tabs opened, each one having one picture.The only content of the page is the picture (but the link of the page sometimes is .php, not a exactly picture mimetype)
I know this doesn't answer your question directly, but after trying a ... well, a fair amount of various extensions for things like that I settled for something more simple. It's called Show the Image (I currently have 0.7 version installed; an update may have been released in the meantime), a firefox extension that gives you the largest image on the page after Ctrl-Q. So if you've got fast fingers, combined with Ctrl-W for closing tabs, and Ctrl-S/Enter ... it enables you to go through a lot of tabs just saving images (also handles the .php problem; since after Ctrl-Q you'll get the .jpg/.gif or the appropriate).
Looking for a way to save a group of tabs in Firefox as files to disk. The files should be saved as whatever the type of page is that is being displayed, ie, html or pdf or png. (I assume based on the Content-Type). Ideally it would work on any type, ie not just images.
Downloading images online involves right-clicking each individual image and saving the file to your computer. This can be a time-consuming process, especially if you have multiple tabs with images that need to be downloaded. A third-party program or browser extension enables you to automatically download all images from multiple tabs according to the criteria that you specify. This is useful in instances when, for example, product or event photos for your business are posted by multiple people online and you want to download all these images without having to do so individually.
Configure the options, such as the location to save the images to and types of images that you want to save, to your liking. Click the radio button next to "All tabs" in the "Default Save Action" section and then click "OK."
I backed up my mimetypes.rdf and removed all entrys with force-download and restarted firefox, but the only difference it made is now firefox says it is an jpg but it still wants to download it/open in external program. If I go to Options->Applications the jpg entry is there but I can't select preview in firefox.
One of the most interesting extensions to gain traction of late is a small extension called Image Picka which allows you to quickly and easily select and download any or all images currently being shown in any of your open tabs. For example, if you have nine different Firefox tabs open all on different websites, you can use Image Picka to download any number of selected pictures from any of the nine open tabs.
You will also need to right-click on the extension icon in the taskbar and select either of the top two options, otherwise, Image Picka will long load content from your current tab. When you have done this simply left click the extension icon and it will open a new tab listing all of the images from all of the tabs.
Though there are several ways to download all the images from a single web page without having to save each one individually, I find this to be one of the quickest and easiest. And all you need is the Firefox web browser!
You can always restore images in Firefox if you ever want them back. To do so, open the permissions.default.image preference setting again as outlined in the steps above. Then, click the Reset option button on the far right of that setting to restore the original option to restore webpage images.
One thing that I would like is the freezing problem firefox has when you download something and your download history is big and bloated. I know that I just need to do a cleanup but it's quite handy to have the list of completed downloads as it is quicker to open the download from the list than actually going to the directory. It would also be nice if it is date stamped. Just my 2 cents.
2) Later - a special tag (user-defined of course) that will store a page the user want to read later (for whatever reason, like saw it at work, but want to see it at home), this should have some time since the bookmark analogy, something like the color of the text goes from black to white in 30 days ( the time also should be user defined), the main reason for this is to alert the user to read it, after that time, the bookmark will be erased (or the user should be presented of a wway to store the bookmark on his system as definitive ( this is a brainstorm of the idea, it's all open for discussion ). The "Later" bookmarks should automatically become accessible offline. When you are temporarily disconnected, they provide you with content.
It would be great if ogg theora playback made it into Firefox 3 :) ... at the FOMS conference where open media developers meet last Thursday and Friday we identified the inclusion ogg theora into firefox as important goal.  An early version of liboggplay was demoed at the conference. Liboggplay is a small statically linked ogg theora, vorbis and possibly Speex playback library. I will query about logistics in the newsgroup.
Since you have tabbed browsing, and the tabs are movable (within the same window), would it be possible to1) get one of the tab to form a new window and2) move the tabs across windows?(I don't mind having to refresh inbetween, but a lot of sites have frames that covers the actual URL so navigating after copy and pasting the URL may becomes troublesome sometimes)(most of them comes from opening too many tabs and I would like to be able to reorganize the tabs into different windows)==3) In tabbed browsing, I often "jump" from a tab, to an other tab... and need to come back: uneasy when may tabs are open.May I suggest:
Now, wouldn't it be great to be able to define the number of home pages (start pages) in Firefox? Rather than having one home page, what if we could define any number (or a reasonable amount) of home pages that are opened up as individual tabs when starting Firefox? The presence of tabs in Firefox means that there is the potential to realize this feature with minimal effort.
I would like to suggest this. Many websites use RSS feeds, but in firefox the RSS feeds take up room on the toolbar and it looks generically the same. I believe it would be more efficient if one had a website bookmarked on the bookmark toolbar to enable an option to also have a live feed from that book mark, that perhaps shows when a person hovers over the link for an amount of time or clicks only the icon. That would save room and create more convenience for a person to follow updates on a website.
Then, please make that new links open right next the parent tab, not in the end of the tabs in a window. Also, when closing a tab it should back to the parent tab or the last tab viewed not the rightest tab as it is. Frequently I have to drag and drop the new tab to the position near the parent tab to keep my navigation organized (similar things grouped).
-We may borrow algorithm/codes from other open-source projects (such as The GIMP). Options that could be provided are :1. Resample (Lanczos) - highest quality; slowest2. Resample (Bicubic) - better quality3. Resample (Bilinear) - good quality4. Resize only (Nearest Neighbour) - lowest quality; fastest
Some files don't get cleared for a page that is currently open. This problem has plagued Firefox for years. Where it is most noticeable is with Flash apps that load multiple Flash files. The subsequent SWF files are NEVER cleared from the cache unless the user closes the window or navigates away from the page the files are on. This makes for extra steps in clearing in the cache for every edit. As a developer I have to explain this process repeatedly to many clients and colleagues. They are either confused or frustrated by the issue.
It would be nice to have tab animations when the user grabs a tab, and rearranges it on the tabs toolbar. An example of this is in Chrome and Safari, where the tabs move themselves accordingly to where the user holds the grabbed tab at the moment. This makes the reorganization of tabs look more smooth. However, there should be an choice in the options page where the user can allow/disable these animations. Also, animations should be added for when tabs are torn from the toolbar, and are either used to make a new window, or join another window's tabs. These animations are also found in Chrome and Safari, and add a nice touch to the browsing experience. These animations would make the browsing on Firefox look more smooth and seamless.

I need to download third-party software from the internet to my Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) Windows instance. The Internet Explorer security configuration is blocking my attempts. How can I enable downloads?
Note: If you enable downloads on your EC2 Windows instance, be sure to download files only from trusted sources. After you download and install the software, it's a best practice to re-enable Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration.
Most people never get near that level of crazy, but you don't have to have many tabs open before you start running into trouble: the browser starts eating up memory, everything slows down, tabs get so scrunched together you can't see them ... it's a mess. This is Google Chrome with 20 tabs open: 2b1af7f3a8
