I downloaded the newest version of firefox lastweek and every gif I have saved since have turned into text files. You can't view what the gif looks like because it looks like a document. I tried to open it with the application Preview, but it won't work. Only if you click on the gif can you see what it looks like in preview. Basically I want to see what the image looks like in my image folder.
