Unable to « View Background Image »

Post by Cov » Wed Feb 27, 2013 7:48 pm

Hello,

I've tried to save the background image of a random website.
So, using FireFox I usually just right click somewhere and select view background image, but this time it's greyed out:

Image

Seems to have been diabled by the website owner.
Would you know a trick of how to get the background image somehow?

Thanks

Choose "View page source" and search for "body background"(without the quote marks); if you can't find it, is in the CSS file, which is out of my knowledge area.

Hi, thank you very much for your reply. I just checked but unfortunately the term "body background" is not there.

Try to save the page locally, see if it downloads the picture into the sub folder.

Hi Spoon boy, thank you very much for your reply!
The problem has been solved, the image was just a gradient:

Code: Select all

background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(-75deg, #001A4B 0px, #001A4B 19%, #022559 38%, #084683 67%, #0A5191 100%);
Sorry about that :?
