IE6.0 Images don't display UNTIL AFTER right click->show picture
Posted on 2003-03-10
I have a web page that displays lots (around 200) copies of a small gif (10x10) pixels. Now, on my computer, sometimes when I use the links on other pages to naviage to this problem page, the page loads fine, and other times it doesnt (its about 50/50 atm). BUT, if I press f5 to reload the page, it definately will not load the 10x10 gif (I get the red X). But, if I right click, goto "show picture", then it loads fine.
The annoying thing is, its only my computer. I have had friends browse to this page, and it works fine - no probs at all.
I've tried lots of different things like emptying the temp internet files folder, checking firewall ad blocking settings, and even putting the encoding meta tag in the header of the page, but nothing helps.
The only thing I can think of is that my computer has the asian fonts and input locales installed. But, IE is current using the Western European (ISO) encoding setting.
I am completely at a loss. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
