I'm saving images on different pages, and I'd prefer to use the alt text associated to the images as file names instead of the default file name (which doesn't mean anything at times.)
So how do I "Save image as…"
alt text.ext automatically?

I know you're using firefox but I couldn't find one that'd work very well. There's an extension for chrome called Pendule. Among other features, it has the ability to show the text of the alt text, there's also a more detailed features that grabs all images on one pages and displays information about each image. Check out the pics and see if it's something that'd work for what you want. I know it's not firefox, but it's a solution that'd be quicker than mousing over each image for instance. You can get it here:
I too had this same scenario. After some internet search i found no extension that can do it. So, i made forked Open Source chrome extension "Image Downloader", and made some changes to do precisely that: Use the image's alt-text as the filename. You can check it out here: https://github.com/sansagara/image-downloader. You can clone the project and then install it from chrome by enabling developer mode.
I hope you find it as useful as it was for me!
