JQuery Slideshow Help in Safari

My main browser is Safari 5.0.3.

I have a page that uses a slideshow based on JQuery elements and CSS. I have an unrelated widget on the page that fetches information from an external source. When the page loads in Safari, all the images in the slideshow are temporarily displayed for less than a second, then the page looks correct and the slideshow functions as it should.

A test page without the widget is correct from the start.

The same effect happens in FireFox 3.5.7 for Mac, but is so fast you almost don't notice it. And, subsequent reloads of the page don't show the problem at all.

It seems like a Safari issue and I don't have Windows/Explorer to test. Any help to make the problem go away is appreciated.

The effect occurs in every browser, it just may not be visible because of fast loading / page rendering. This is also why it does not happen again on reload. It is by design; in your html, all images are visible and displayed below each other, and when the page is loaded, the javascript starts and hides all but one image.

Try adding style="display: none" to all but the first image in your html code to prevent this from happening (and display fine without js enabled).
