How to save an image from a Facebook post when right click save will not work.

It is annoying when you wish to save an image from a Facebook post and this will not work. But this is actually very easy using Firefox. Just right click on the image and select Inspect element with Firebug.

This is what it should look like. Open this in a new tab and then save the image. This should also work with Chrome if you select Inspect element.
