    Facebook likes to mess with direct access to image files that they host, but in this case it sounds like a browser issue. Try it in a different browser. If it works in a different browser then you can start to look at the profile on the broken browser. Which browser are you using?

    I was using IE and when I opened it on Firefox then it could be saved as jpeg. Please can you explain what you mean by starting to look at the profile on the broken browser?
    Thanks

    When you go to save the pictures in Internet Explorer, is the default filename Untitled.bmp? If so, you need to delete your Temporary Internet Files...

    Internet Explorer saves images as bitmaps (.bmp Files) KB810978

    That it works in another browser says that it's either a bug in the software or something messed up in the user profile, such as a setting or add-on. Next step is to run IE without Add-Ons and see if that works. Something like "Start->Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)".


    If it works without add-ons, then it's just process of elimination. Disable some add-ons, see if it works, if not then enable those and disable some other add-ons, until you've narrowed it down to one.

    If it's not related to add-ons, it could be some other setting. Try logging in as a different user on that same machine and see if it works. If so, then log in as the original user and use IE's big reset button. Control Panel->Internet Options->Advanced tab->Reset


    What version of IE? I think I found a bug (unrelated to this, but I'm just saying this to point out that they may have released it in an imperfect condition) in IE10 this morning...google produces a few threads on Microsoft support forums but none that were resolved.
