Why won't photos in Google Images download in their original size?

Just got a new laptop running Windows7 and I downloaded the latest version of Firefox. Whenever I try to download photos from Google Images (by right-clicking Save Image As), they are being automatically resized (much smaller) and instead of getting the name/code number of the photo, the File Name box simply reads "images" for whichever picture I try to download. This never happened with my old laptop (Vista) which also ran Firefox - when I right-clicked on a photo and selected Save Image As, I'd get the name of the photo in the File Name box and the image would save in its original size.

Help! Thanks in advance.

Hi lazysunbather, In Google images you may have to go to the "view image" link in order to download the original file size. The search resizes it to thumbnails.
