    Why is it that when I try to upload pictures in .png file format I no longer have that option. All I seem to have is .gif as an option. I noticed this sometime back and noticed it remains that way.

    Here is a .PNG file.
    No problem to me, how are you uploading?

    I just click the Upload a File button. When I click it My Pictures folder opens but as can be seen only certain picture files are selectable. If I just open my pictures folder then I see All Files but when I open it through Upload a file I only see the .gif files. Guessing this is on my end but damned if I can figure it out.

    I also don't get what the small Block tab seen is all about? :)

    EDIT: Just noticed you're using Firefox. I'm using Chrome, so I wonder if it's browser-related?

    Considering the file names of the two images dated 20 May, have you had a visit from men in black suits recently Jim?

    Well I'll be, browser related Works fine in MSIE, I also have Chrome but generally use firefox. Firefox works fine in other forums like my gun forums so I'll have to figure it out.

    Many Thanks
