Images not displaying in FF, they are showing up locally and on IE.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why my images on my side bar are not showing up in FF.  They display fine when viewing locally in FF, and online in IE.

Now, if they didn't show up online in IE, then it would be a path issue, or uploading issue.  I uploaded the images again, just to make sure - even though you can see them in IE. I cleared my cache.

But, they show up fine in FF locally - just do not show up after they have been uploaded.

The website is; 
I assume you have Firebug, Web Dev tools to pick through the code.

If you look down the bottom left hand side, there should be two images.  Number one being special offers, two being personal training.  Hopefully you will be able to see these either in IE, or FF.

By locally meaning I display the page from a folder on my desktop, and it looks fine in FF and IE.

Can I ask, did you see the two images down the left hand side - under the nav, and what browser you are using.

Mmmmmm, this is very strange.  Tried it with FF on my other workstation, and both images are displaying.

Gah, why does this always happen at the end of the day.
Will wait till I get a few more try it.

Thanks for your help.

Hope your local folder has everything updated in the same position ;) If you are on linux or mac and the server is windows, look to upper/lowercases too.
With firefox developer tools, can you follow the request and see if the image is fetched?
If not, have you some extension that can create this problem... don't know what, but is a try. Disable the extensions-

Fixed it - was adblock.  For some reason it decided to bloke those two images, just not locally.  So, in essence, if I had not found the issue myself - your comment about disabling extensions would have solved my issue.
