Have you ever right-clicked on a website graphic in Firefox expecting to find that handy “View Background Image” context menu item only to realize it wasn’t there because the element you right-clicked on was a link? No? Well it happens to me all the time. A little over a year ago I made a little Firefox extension to add that functionality for links.
url("imageurl") instead of
url(imageurl). Stripping the double quotes was an easy fix but I also knew that FF 3.6 supported multiple backgrounds. Out of curiosity I set up a little html link styled with 2 background images and to my surprise
Now for the sad part…
As I was experimenting with multiple background image support in Firefox 3.6, I discovered that the “View Background Image” context menu item is now missing when you right-click on elements that have multiple backgrounds. While the extension update adds the ability to see all the backgrounds applied to a link, Firefox itself lacks the ability to do the same for other elements. I’m sure I can take care of that with another extension update. For now though, I’m just happy to say it works again.
