WFM on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1a2pre) Gecko/20080822033426 Minefield/3.1a2pre. Are you sure you are clicking on the image, and saving as a .jpg? Also, try in Safe Mode.
Tested again in safe mode without improvement. I do indeed right-click on the image, and JPEG is the type pre-selected in the file dialog. There appears to be a black background. Right-clicking on that gives me a different context menu that omits the "Save image as..." option, as I would expect clicking on the containing page.
Can you give a screenshot of the right-click, and the context menu, etc?
Created attachment 335200 [details] Screenshot of context menu and resulting file Attached. The window behind Firefox on the left is my text editor, showing the previously-downloaded image file (with a "c" appended to the filename). This was done on a different machine, this time running XP 64. (To get the screenshot, I right-clicked to get the menu, hit PrtScr, then pasted to Irfanview. Alt-PrtScr (to capture just the application window) won't work because the Alt key dismisses the context menu.)
"Saving an image saves a web page instead" happens to me on my bank's website as well as ups.com. The web page saved (in place of the image) is a login page. I cannot provide a link because you must be logged in. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:220.127.116.11) Gecko/2009060215 Firefox/3.0.11
