    I'm pretty new to Mac -- the help in firefox says to put the cursor over an image on a web page then hit ctrl1 and the " save image as" options will appear. Nothing happens for me? I love the mac so far but miss my right click.

    Try holding down the ctrl-button while you click. (Ctrl-click = right-click.)

    Or just drag the image on to your desktop (or a finder window, or in some cases the app where you want to use it).

    Hold down "option" when clicking on a link or picture/movie.

    Thanks. I feel somewhat stupid with these little things after years with windows, but I love this machine and os so far.

    Don't feel stupid. You've been trained to do things the Microsoft way.

    I have found that for most things, if I simply ask myself "How would I do this if I knew NOTHING about computers?," the answer is usually right if I'm using a Mac.
