Firefox bug - Help?

Postby DK » Fri Oct 14, 2005 9:16 pm

OK, so every now and then when I'm using Firefox images on webpages don't show up. All the text is there, but none of the images or other things. This doesn't annoy me too much until the "Sign out" of Hotmail button (which is an image) doesn't show up, even after I refresh it about 75 times (no exaggeration).

Can someone tell me what to do so I can see all the images I'm supposed to see? For example, a lot of times people's avatars, signatures, etc. don't show up for me. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't, there's no real rhyme or reason to it.

Thanks in advance! :-o ;-D

Use IE? ;-7

I don't use Firefox, so best I can do is give this a bump for you. ;-)

Is it only the Cafe? See if clearing your cache and cookies does anything. Also, how long has it been doing it? That's happened to me and it usually just fixes itself. :-?

Yeah, every so often on here the icons do not load correctly...it just loads the meta tag as the image and sits there. If I refresh, it goes back to normal most times...

Have you just recently switched to Firefox, and have you done the Firefox Speedup codes yet? If not, maybe that will help the pages load better. ;-D

Believe it or not, I actually tried that, except whenever I turned on IE my computer froze. Maybe it's mad that I'm cheating on it with Firefox. :D

I did the Speedup codes and cleared my cookies. When I tried to clear my cache my Firefox froze (Can you tell I'm on the brink of technological revolution? :-b ). I also deleted a few old programs and after all that the Cafe' seems to be working, but other sites (namely Hotmail and another forum I browse regularly) are still not showing all the images consistently.

Thanks for the help so far, it seems like a slow process but I may be figuring something out. ;D

Reinstall firefox.

Make sure its the newest version.

Reset your web settings

Make sure its not on your blocked images list accidently if you downloaded that plug in
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

OUCH!!! Madison, you need to get on the wagon... or off the wagon. Or, whatever the bad one is, because the wagon is microsoft and IE blows!!!

Viva Firefox and tabbed browsing!

Just think of more often you can post on FBC when you can have all your threads open in one window.

As for the Firefox problem, I'm having it occassionally too and I'm using the Beta version... I think it's a beta bug. I use the newest version at home (other than beta) and i have no problems at all. Also, try clicking the update button if it's there at the top right of your page.

Oh, and some extentions could cause that problem too... have you installed any lately?
