Never heard of it but you can post in the macro forum here, I'm sure it's not so difficult.

No such choice in Firefox if the pic is not the only content displayed on the page.

:?: :?:
There certainly is that option in my Firefox. However, maybe it depends on whether the image in the web page is protected against copying. (Most pay-per or subscription clipart sites, for example, protect their images and even pop a warning if you try to save something that way. I haven't tried seeing what would happen if I saved a website or used the ScrapBook extension. I would hope those methods could be similary blocked, because the material is copyrighted unless specifically posted as open domain.)

Here are some screenshots (based on your avatar):
Screen1.png
Simple right click on the pic (nothing selected).

Screen2.png
Right click after the pic has been selected.

Sorry, it's in French but the 'Copier' entry (for Copy) is only available if the pic has been selected.

Interesting. It must be a difference in the French distro, or maybe some add-on affects the behavior. A single right-click on your avatar (no other previous selection) does give me the copy command:
