Firefox gives this message when I go to (right click) > properties for 
either image.

"The image “http://www.hondaswap.com/ads/banners/dcsports.gif” cannot be 
displayed, because it contains errors"

there must be some kind of corruption in the image even though it 
renders ok in the browser?

Maybe try opening in an image editor and re-saving???
Just a guess...
