IE 8 likes to save photos as BMP when the photo is JPG. How to solve this?

I'm using Internet Explorer 8 on Vista and when I save a picture using "Save as..." it will only save as a bitmap and not as a jpeg.

I have cleared my cache etc. What could be wrong?

My bet is the image format is actually really BMP or something non-jpeg.

Take a look at my demo page here, open it in IE and try to save the images, you will get what I mean.
