    I haven't always had this problem.. it just popped up pretty recently and I have no idea what could be causing it. The problem is whenever I try to save images off a website in IE6 it automatically tries to make me save it as a bitmap file (.bmp), despite what kind of file it is on the website.. jpeg, gif, whatever. It's really annoying cause then I have to save it, open it up in paint and save it as a smaller file type. Is there any way to fix this or is it just a problem with the latest version of Internet Explorer?

    I've always had that problem in IE as well... Oh well, guess that's one more reason I don't use IE ;)
