This used to be ok so my guess is I either tripped a switch or something tripped it for me.
Anyhow I've been trying to grab nice Gifs like the images folks use on sites as their legends for my neices (mini tom and Jerry toons etc) and recently I keep getting the option to save them as BMPs only, not as GIFs and as you know a BMP won't do.
Can someone tell me how to switch this back.

If you cannot save any other pictures (jpgs) as well without getting the BMP option. Go to Internet options/temp files/ Press "delete temp files". This is a recognised bug in IE when the cache gets bloated. If that doesn't work save the entire page that the gif is on by "File - save as" and the associated files including the gif will be in a sub folder within the folder you save it in eg My documents. Copy the gif from that folder and delete the rest.
