IE7 and PNG's

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Ive got the problem that when i open a link to a .png picture, IE7 wants to download the image with the File Download dialog (regular file download dialog) and not simply loading it in the tab/window.

Now i know other people has had this same problem, be it jpg/gif/bmp. But for the love of my life, i cant find anything about it on google! I dont know if im searching it wrongly or what!

And this is not the problem of getting a red X on a webpage. Neither is it anything about transparency. As google thinks thats what im searching for.

My eyes are bleeding, ive been trying to figure this out for the last 2 hours (3am currently).

When i click Open in the File Download dialog it opens the png with ACDSee 2. Im not sure if that has anything to do with it as jpg/bmp opens there too if clicked in MyComputer.

Any ideas or links to google pages?

I tried searching the boards too, but nothing :/

Thanks!

if you get the same permissions errors as the commenters do, try using 'run as administrator' on regedit.exe and importing the .reg with File->Import

EDIT- if this occurs only on one site its a problem with the sites mime type config and not your browser.
