Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Works fine here. Are you sure it is an image and not a flash file? Give us an example of a website for instance that you are having problems with...also, have you recently upgraded Firefox?

Do you have any Firefox extensions that you loaded yourself? Read this:

And in Firefox, Help>About Mozilla Firefox., shows the version is which ?
--in Linux Mint 7 -gloria, my version is 3.0.11, since I haven't used the latest version of Firefox 3.5x, I am waiting for it to appear in the repository (and fix any issues..)

I would search xfce for bugs first
http://bugzilla.xfce.org/buglist.cgi?qu ... save+image

Or query the Internet for similar issues..

    It is now possible to save screenshots on any remote share supported by GVFS: ftp, sftp, samba... You just need to connect to a share or a distant computer using Gigolo or gvfs-connect and it will be displayed in the sidebar of the save dialog.

Or it might be changes to xfce desktop settings

    Desktop Settings and Screensaver let you select the desktop background (solid colors or gradients, or an image) and screensaver, along with some behavior aspects, such as the meaning of a middle- or right-click (the defaults are showing the window list and showing the desktop menu, respectively) or what kinds of icons (if any) will be shown.
How about Risotto (image(s)) and Thunar (file manager) configurations ?
