Firefox Image download problem

Hi Friends . I got the problem suddenly . My firefox was running good , but I didn't know what happened, whenever I tried to download an image using firefox (right click and save image as ) is shows this ... and obviously the download is a url , not an image.

How Can I fix it ? Thanks a lot in advance .

Hi Arc,

1) Try clearing the cache and see if that helps.

2) Otherwise, couple of workarounds you can try.

Instead of
RightClick "Save Image As..."
RightClick "View Image Info", then "Save As".

Though this involves 2 extra clicks.

Another one.

Load the picture. Then hold the SHIFT button, and Refresh/Reload the page. Then try "Save Image As ..."
