    Umm, yes seriously. That's what caused the Gallery to re-index for me.

    I can't make heads or tails out of what "technique" you are asking about in your response.

    As a workaround, you can download dropbox, log onto a computer, save the pics to dropbox, and pick them up on your Iconia. All is not lost...

    Did you try viewing the image by itself and then saving it? As in long press, then press view image, then try saving it. That might work but I'm not sure since I don't use facebook.

    Have you used a file manager (like Astro, for example) to look in your Downloads folder? That may just be where they are. They wouldn't go to your gallery, as they're considered downloads, I believe. If they're there, you can use the file manager to move them to your Pictures folder, where they should then show up in your gallery.

    I'm seeing something similar.
    I long press a picture on a web page, and select save.
    A black box comes up saying download started.
    You tap on the icon in the status bar, and often it says "Download Failed".

    So I emailed one of the sites I was having problems with, and he said:

    This is a problem with the Android Download manager, which does not support Basic HTTP Authentication. Therefore, if you need to log into a site, you might not be able to save images from that site because the browser hands off the actual download to the download manager upon Long Press. Until the download manager gets fixed you can use Opera, which simply saves from its own cache rather than re-downloading it again.
    So first check that your download actually WORKED before trying to launch the Gallery to find your image, because chances are that if you had to Log In to the site (facebook), it did NOT work, (tap the notification in bottom bar to check download status).

    Further followup: So I did download Opera and it worked. I was able to download the images from a server I had to log into. And its a pretty nice browser as well. Check it out.

    Oh, and if you want cool wall-papers for your Acer check out www.digitalblasphemy.com
    Members (cheap) even get images pre-sized for the Acer ( choose Xoom size). Awesome wallpapers.
