So now we know it's an issue with IE... :) Where, in Microsoft's infinite wisdom, are the settings to change this? Anyone????

I'll have to do some serious looking...Meanwhile, you should check This Page out. Play with Firefox a little...take a look at the themes available...check out the way Firefox gets around and what it can do. I'll do some research on the IE settings/conflict issues and post back with what I find.

Thanks wannabe1! :)

On your advise, I'll check out the link and play around a bit w/FF.

So now we know it's an issue with IE...  :)  Where, in Microsoft's infinite wisdom, are the settings to change this? Anyone????


After checking out the Microsoft links I placed in my 1st post, I knew I had to get some serious help!

I realize this is agraviting. I was at wits end trying to figure it out!
Once again, your help is greatly appreciated!
Wannabe1, one day I hope that you are one! :tazz:

Only too glad to help, cobbler1

One of my favorite features in Firefox is "Tabbed Browsing" Right click on a link and choose "Open in a new tab". It's about the only way I can keep track of things on this site.... :tazz:

You might check out Thunderbird, too.

I'll still be looking for this "elusive fix"....

Howdy cobbler1...

In a word...No

I have read literally hundreds of threads on IE problems and have even found a few very similar to your problem. However, I haven't found a decent solution yet. One question, though...Do you have a Google Toolbar installed in IE? (I'm seeing some interesting patterns involving IE and the Google Toolbar)

Nope. No google toolbar here.

I appreciate your continuing search.
Frustrating isn't it?! :) :) :tazz:

Hi cobbler1...

Still haven't got anything solid in the way of a resolution to your problem, but would like you to try something that might help. Download the latest version of Internet Explorer HERE . Install it over the version you have now (don't uninstall the current IE), if possible. Then try to save the images and view the source code as we did before. Let me know if this helps.
