Missing Images in IE

Hi All

Apols to past readers who may have seen something like this a couple of days
ago in this NG, but I'm on a different track.

Basically does anybody know what the answer is for when you visit a web site
(more so with IE 6 and WinXP) and some of the pics (gifs/jpgs) don't appear.

Instead the white box with the red cross takes it's place until you
right-click on the pic and select Show Pictures.

Once you do this the pictures show up for the remainder of the session.

It appears to be pics that are repeated such as thumbnails for nav link
lists and I just can't seem to fix it with HTML code. It seems to be a
browser issue, as the pics intermittantly load or don't load (until you
click Show Pictures from the floating menu).

Please somebody put me out of my misery on this.

Thanks

Laphan

What is different about this track? Only difference I can see is
you don't supply a url this time.

And I still don't know the answer to your problem either...

Mozilla? Opera? Asking MS to fix
their OS component?

...no wait, either of the first two might
have a good chance of being successful.

Perhaps an inquiry about an IE bug causing images not to load would be more
effective if placed in a newsgroup about IE-related issues than in a
newsgroup about stylesheets?

I'm sorry, there's no stylesheet-related solution. Try a Internet
Explorer-related ng.

I have this problem all the time. It seemed to start after one of my
Windows Updates some time ago.

Searching on the internet there is almost 0 information, but it seems
this may be an IE bug. The only testing I have done is load the same
site in Mozilla and IE. Mozilla works fine...and IE does not.

For me, it mostly happens with HTTPS sites.

This is XP SP1a and the latest version of IE. I have not been able to
find a way to fix this...yet.

I have noticed that IE does not always render png images.

Check out http://mindprod.com/jgloss/j.html

Sometimes the icons just show as blue squares. I intended them to look
like they do in Opera 7.51.

I did this with CSS then went back to image when people complained.

...hmmm. I am not sure what you mean about
the icons, but looking at the page in IE 6
and Moz 1.3 sugests to me that one of them
is not rendering the page as you might hope.

[ And for 'not render as expected',
my money is on Moz. ]
