I used to be able to drag and drop any picture from any website to a folder. Not sure if I ran into this issue before but I just noticed that for certain images or websites, it seems, when I drag and drop them from Firefox the image will be unrecognizable when I try to open it. It's icon will be the generic jpg icon. When I right click > "save image as" then it work. The image will have it's proper icon and it'll open in preview. Weird. Specifically with this site: http://7-themes.com/collections/tropica ... allpapers/

If you open the "image" (say, .jpg) with a hex editor (or text viewer...),

Wow! I've never even thought to do that before.
Working here, on Windows.

Thanks.

Err, NOT working here, on Windows.
What is happening - on that site, is that you are ending up with an .html web page that you're downloading & not the expected image.


You can get the image, just not sure of any easy way to say?
