uploads from external source not working in firefox

it functions almost the same in FF as in IE except FF resizes the pic down to 640 x 480 and ie doesnt with the web images only option off.
from the little research I have done I think that it is a file extension issue and IE must have capability to read EXIF as JPG, and FF and safari dont.
EXIF is really a JPG, just in compressed format. its what canon uses to save pics on their camera as, as soon as it is loaded onto a computer or even viewed on a computer, it automatically becomes a JPG.
I definately want the web images only checked as it has good coversion and resize and quality options. not to mention, i cant expect people to put the images on the computer then upload them, some poeple have slow computers not to mention memory cards are even slower. I want direct upload from camera to web with no issues cross browser.
I was reading on another thread about file extensions and tell me if this sounds ok....
What if i go through and all the places it says gif replace it with EXIF. it should work should it not?
