Ok, so i am having problems with IE....nothing big, but annoying. I usually save a lot of pictures from the internet, but whenever I go to save the pictures, it only gives me an option as saving as bitmap. And I would rather have jpg or gif in some cases. There may be some pics that can only work if saved gif, but it won't give me that option. Does someone know how I can save as jpg or gif by choosing it as an option? Thanks :dance:

That's happened to me a lot. The only way I've gotten it to work right again is to delete all temporary internet files. After that, close the browser and open a fresh one, and it should work again.

For some reason after you collect a certain quantity of stuff in your temp folder, you can only save in bitmap afterwards. Go figure. :confused:

go to tools, internet options, and finetune your "security" settings as well as go through the advanced options, select "passive ftp" and check for allowing gifs and jpgs

have fun
