GIF not loading with Norton Internet Security on

P: n/a
Hello, all! I'm having a small problem displaying an ordinary GIF file on my
web site.

It's just a banner with a transparent background. When I have Norton
Internet Security disabled, it displays fine. When I enable Internet
Security, the GIF disappears when I refresh the page - it doesn't even show
an image placeholder. (Test was run with IE and Netscape).

And you know what? I keep hitting refresh with Internet Security disabled,
and SOMETIMES the image loads, and sometimes not!

The document site in question:
http://members.cox.net/grundage/links.html
(Banner is at bottom of page)

This is frustrating the heck out of me. What is going on here? Any info is
appreciated. Thanks! :-)

OK, you need to upload files to your web host's computer (cox.net). It
sounds like that what you're doing now is keeping the file on your
local computer instead. I don't know what programs you're using to
create the webpage and upload the file, but you want webpage links and
images to be relative to the page url, not your hard drive.

Actually, grnban.gif works for me, even if I request it without sending a
Referer line.

I'm not familiar with Norton Internet Security, but I'd suggest looking at
its log files, if such exist.

This is probably not an HTML authoring issue.

Check your CPU usage while testing this with NIS enabled.
On my system, using both Mozilla and IE, the CPU usage goes
to 100% with NIS enabled, and the page doesn't display in the
browser viewport until I stop the loading.
After that, the behaviour is different, depending on which
browser I use, and I can see the banner, but if I do a
force-refresh, the original problem reappears.
I suggest you move your questions to a forum related to
NIS.

Don't I recall reading previously in this group (alt.html), that one
of the features of Norton Internet Security is to suppress things that
look like <cough> banners?

Perhaps this is configurable: I do not know.

yes an gif is a kind of href and you need to ftp-upload it to.

If I can download it, obviously the OP has uploaded it enough.
