Firewall Blocking iGoogle Gadgets

Is anyone else out there having a problem with iGoogle gadgets not showing images or even content at times?  When I connect my notebook at home I get all of my bookmarks, and icons with the enhanced bookmarks gadget.  However at the office i only get the gadget header and not the items within the gadget. Any help would be appreciated!  I am hoping it is a port that I have blocked on the server or similar.

Do you have any kind of Content Filtering enabled on your firewall...  I know that here we do block some kinds of content and if a page contains that content then it will be blocked. for example if I block youtube.com and a page contains a link to a video on youtube then it will be missing from the page.

Found my own answer - it seems that the gadget was being hosted by a site in Germany.  We have most all of the RIPE network blocked on our firewall.  I ipened up the address for the hosting site and everything came up.
