    Exclamation Firefox not putting file extensions?
    Hey Everyone,
    I have been using Mac OS X Leopard for about 3 months now and I have a question. When I save files from Firefox, when I name the file, I have to make sure the .jpg is in the file name, if I do not have it there the file is just listed as a file, even though at the bottom of the save window it says it is saving as a Jpeg file. Is this normal? I then have to go to the file and put the extension .jpg at the end and it opens correctly, yet if I then delete the extension, the file now remembers that it is a .jpg.

    However, saving with Safari works fine without having .jpg in the name, has anyone else experienced this issue?

    Thanks for any help.

    Normal indeed. It's a common Firefox bug. I found that out pretty quickly. If you don't add the extension, they open in TextEdit, and then you have to drag it into Firefox and save it again.
