Saving images from the internet

Suddenly I've found that I can only save images from the web in bmp format, regardless of whether it's a bmp, jpeg or gif. I used to be able to have a choice. Is there a simple tweak or setting to be changed to get it back?

I can open the image and re-save it as a jpg but, as the images were originally jpg or gif, I'm losing a little bit more of the quality.

XP, using IE6.

Thanks.

This is an recognised bug when the IE cache gets bloated. In IE, Go to Tools/ Internet Options/Temp files - Press "delete files" and that should correct it.

It didn't work straight away, but it did when I closed & re-opened IE.

Another little trick to remember ;O)
