IE6 inserts forward slash at end of URL so image htm

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Richard Wright, Mar 20, 2005.

  1. I am trying to download a JPEG file from a URL that I paste into the
    address. The line ends with /myfile.jpg

    After pressing Go, IE6 inserts a forward slash / at end of address, so
    that the line ends with /myfile.jpg/

    It then reads the file in htm format not as a JPEG image.

    Mozilla correctly identifies file as JPG, and doesn't insert any
    forward slash at the end of the address. So I can save the file in
    JPEG format.

    I think the problem must be with the server, since I uploaded the file
    saved by Mozilla to my homepage and IE6 gets it right then.

    Is there any workaround with IE6?

    What type of problem is this (keywords, etc.)?
