    1. When I open my File menu and click on Save as, and then Save, I keep getting a pop-up message: "This web page could not be saved".
    2. I cannot get "View source" to work. The source code will not come up: nothing happens at all. It is IE 5.0 that I am having this problem with. I also have Netscape 4.7, and it works there OK. So I can't understand why it won't work with IE 5.0.

    If somebody can help me with one or both of these questions I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Robert

    The solution you suggested, deleting the TIF's (Temporary Internet Files) worked to solve my "View source" problem! And, surprisingly, it apparently solved my other problem as well: I am now saving web pages, and I didn't even need to try to implement any of the solutions you suggested for that one!

    By the way, I did have a bit of a problem trying to figure out what TIF's meant (I'm 55 and getting Alzheimer's). However, I came upon "Temporary Internet Files" when I thought to go Tools - Internet Options, and there I saw it in the middle of the frame with a button for deleting same.

    Thank you Tony!

    All best,
    Robert

    Hi Robert,

    Glad it was something so innocuous.

    I've got a little tip for you:

    Go to tools/Internet Options, advanced tab, and check " Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed".

    That way you'll never forget again. :)

    Cheers,
