https://stackoverflow.com/questions/30005815/convert-encoded-base64-image-to-file-object-in-android

This can come up when viewing images on Startpage in anonymous mode.

There is still a problem with the context menu and the save dialog taking a long time to populate due to the length of the URL.

If the image (and resulting data URL is long) the freeze can take so long that Android kills Privacy Browser because it considers it to have crashed. Startpage has recently started using data URLs for image search results. Very annoying.
