jpeg images & SP2

I downloaded SP2 yesterday and now when I try to save an image with Firefox0.9.3 I get the following message.
The link could not be saved. The web page might have been removed or the name changed. If I use IE I have no problem. XP home, Zone alarm, I turned off the IE firewall. one msg I got said something about cashe but I failed to save it and now cant remember what it said.
any ideas whats wrong?

I'm using Firefox 9.2 (not 9.3) plus Windows XP HOME SP2 and it saves .jpg pictures perfectly from the internet. I find a picture, RIGHT click on it, choose "Save Image As", then follow the prompts to save the file to the destination of my choice. Is that how you are attempting to save the picture, or are you trying some other procedure?

Is there some specific webpage where you're having problems? Maybe we could do some tests if you'll give us the link.

Hope this helps.
