I am experiencing an odd issue on a machine running Windows 7 with Javascript when using Chrome and Firefox. I have a Wordpress site that uses a slider to display images and information. The slider works great on every other machine (using IE9, Chrome, and Firefox) but it stopped working on a single machine. The slider doesn't move between slides and the next\previous buttons are mostly hidden beneath the image. They do not respond to mouse clicks as they should. The slider working on the problem machine when using IE9 but no other browser. I made sure both Firefox and Chrome are the latest versions and I have re-installed both hoping a clean install would resolve the issue. I included a picture of the problem and a picture in which it is working. The URL is http://dev.mpirx.com

Please login to the same PC with another user (better if you create a new test user) and run the test again. Does that happen with the test user too?

I tried disabling my AV protection completely (using Avira and Malwarebytes) and I created a new local profile but the problem persists.

Take FF. Disable JavaScript. Close all instances of FF. Open FF and the web page. You shouldn't even see the pic. Enable JavaScript again, close all FF, open and access the web page. Any change?

I followed those steps but after re-enabling I did not see a change. The image didn't load after disabling Javascript but the issue returns upon enabling Javascript.

A fellow employee just told me he is getting the same result when he is viewing the site in Chrome so I now know this is not a problem limited to my computer. I just don't know what the actual cause of the issue is yet.

The slider is a WP plugin (if yes, please post name and version) or is it self-made code?

It's built-in to a theme from ElegantThemes.com Chameleon

Since I just started the site I am going to rebuild it from scratch. First I'll see if it works on a clean install then I will enable every feature\plugin one by one to see if they caused the issue.

That is a good idea. I suggest you should have both sites available: actual site that doesn't work on some clients and the new (your approach) site which should work on the same clients.
Let us know.

P.S.: I couldn't check but I suppose version 3.3 is the latest.

Well everything is working after a clean install, this must have been a fluke. Thanks for all your help guys.

I decided to do a clean install to see if the issue would persist. The clean install actually resolved the issue.
