    Firefox image saving issue - [FIXED]

    When I right click to Save a picture with Firefox on

    http://fc01.deviantart.com/fs15/f/20...thanger007.jpg

    I get an HTM file instead of a BMP file.

    It only happens on Deviant Art. Other people clicked on the

    same picture with the same browser & didn't have this

    problem. Advice? Thanks in advance.

    Left-click on the image which brings it up on another page. Now right-click and save as jpg.

    Try it again please. I changed the URL. I didn't realise it worked with some pictures.

    Thanks for your replies.

    I even uninstalled version 1.5.0.8 & installed version 2.0.0.1 & it still downloads it as an HTM file. Could my Profile be wrong?

    Thanks for trying & replying.

    The first page of images is a menu page. Left-click on one of the images. A new window opens. Now try the save link as.

    Works fine for me also. When you r-click the picture and choose "Save As", what options does it give you?

    Also, Try disabling all your extensions and see if that changes the choices.

    It gave me the option of saving a HTM File.

    When I right click my link above & click 'Save Link As...', I download the picture.

    When I try to download the picture from the site, it says it is an HTML document. There is no 'SAVE LINK AS..' option when I try to download the picture from the site.

    Thank you all for replying.

    I don't know. It just started working for no reason. I had re-started it long ago. It didn't work for about 11 hours.
