(I attached a pic)

its an Ibanez RG4EX1

Long story short:
the saddle piece on the B string slides forward, when I try to tighten it. What do I do?

The full thing: (probably hard to understand)
Ok, so I bought a pack of strings, but it turns out they were too thick, and one was too short. I was able to get the old high E string on with ease, but when I tighten the B string, the saddle piece (???) scoots forward, so I can't tune with those tuning pegs on the bridge.

I thought maybe If I tighten the screw ( the one closest to the bridge pickup) then It wouldn't slide forward, But I didn't even want to try, because I thought I would break something.

So, what do I do?

Edit: Also, If you look closely on the pic, the screw is closer to the top on the high b and e strings. There is a hole so that I can move them to the same position as the other strings, but i don't think thats such a good Idea...

They shouldn't be inline like that. Set the intonation properly. Its a bitch with a Floyd, so if you dont want to do it, get a tech to. You need to tighten the screw you mentioned, the one closest to the bridge pickup.

Don't worry, replacements aren't all that expensive. the Gotoh FR is only about $107 if you order through LP addict (a user here; he has dealer status with AllParts. you'll find him in GB&C).

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

ffs just stop bashing the edge3...

To TS, you just need to adjust your intonation back to its normal position for that particular string. Read my tutorial (sticky on top of EG section)

Oh yeah, he paid money for a decent guitar... he definitely deserves to have the saddle slide forward...

TS, did you try tightening the intonation screw?
