Using Android 4.0.4 on the LG Optiomus P970 I cannot save images from browsers.

When using the preinstalled browser (not Chrome on this device) tap-and-hold brings up a context menu including "save image". Pressing that option closes the menu but otherwise has no effect.

When using Chrome choosing "save image" brings up a list of apps to use including Gallery, Dropbox and Google Drive (all three allow selecting an existing file only, but doing so doesn't change that file) and a couple of non-senical options like Camera, Camcorder, Audio and voice memo.

Any idea what might be going wrong or how I can troubleshoot it?

  • Are you sure it has no effect in the default browser? Once you've pressed Save image, it's done, so you shouldn't expect to see anything further. Go into the Gallery and look in the Downloads album.

  • Sadly no. Nothing there.
