    So, when I save a .gif, from the internet (File --> Save Image As...), it seems to be animated and everything, but when I try to set it as my avatar, it's just 1 frame. And it sits there.
    help?

    sometimes when you do save image it will only save a single frame. If you are using FF then right click the image and select View Image. it should open it an empty page/tab. Then just drag it from the browser to your desktop.

    BTW yours is animating fine. if it's just one frame to you it might be a memory or browser issue.

    I know my animation works, but that's because I made it. It's saving other peoples that does not work. (Parrot, I'm trying to help you)

    Please Register or Log in to view images

    When I save it, then view it, it's animated, but when set as my avatar, it's not.
