I have just been stricken by the infamous »Save Image As bmp« bug again.
This time nothing would help. I did everything suggested in
but it wouldn't help. Every temporary internet file has been deleted,
every cookie too, Flash and Java uninstalled, the temporary internet
files folder has been moved, I rebooted countless times, nothing helped
this time. Then I noticed something: This time, at least, the bug
occurred only on a particular page! Images on other pages could be
saved as jpegs just fine! But when I direct IE at this URL for example:
or any page that links to this image with an IMG tag, then the »save as«
dialog will only offer bmp as file type (and suggest »untitled« as file
name). But otherwise, IE works just fine!
It would be really nice if Microsoft fixed this ancient bug,
»Don't ask for whom the <CTRL-G> tolls.«
