Solved: Images won't load in Firefox- AV or firewall's fault?

Question: Solved: Images won't load in Firefox- AV or firewall's fault?

Slow browsing... images take a long time to load in Firefox. Could my AV (Avast) or firewall (Comodo) or spybot have anything to do with this?

Sometimes, a site will just hang and never fully load. I tried updating java, but that didn't hep.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Preferred Solution: Solved: Images won't load in Firefox- AV or firewall's fault?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've run into a very weird problem with FireFox. It won't load any images all of a sudden.

I was browsing along, everything was fine, then the page refreshed itself, and all the images were gone (I was on TSF).

Everything works in IE (which is weird cause it's usually the other way round). I'm using version (updated itself today) though the problem start just before the new version installed itself.

Anyone know what's going on?

Thanks for reading

I'm experiencing this problem when I search for images on google, only some of the images appear in search result while on IE all images load. And also when i was using the edit option on Photobucket on firefox, the image was reduce and when i tried to enlarge it I can't see the full image unlike on IE. I'm not sure how to explain it but those issues I mentioned above didn't happen before when I was using firefox. I thought  NoScript add on that I have on firefox might have block something but that doesnt seem to be the case when i disable it. So if anyone have any clue then Im really appreciated. I screen shot the issues so you can understand better. Thanks in advance [recovering disk space - old attachment deleted by admin]

I have a HP Pavilion zv5000 laptop running Windows XP. Whenever I view a picture on the internet, the picture loads very fuzzy and looks like a lot of the pixels in the picture have merged together into blobs. This makes the pictures hard to see and basically useless. This happens when I am using both Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.

When I save a picture to my hardrive and open using a picture viewer, the picture still looks fuzzy. However, if I take a picture with my digital camera and import it onto my hardrive, it looks fine, crystal clear and not fuzzy at all.

Amazingly, about once of out 100 times I start my computer, this problem doesn't occur and the pictures load perfectly clear on Mozilla Firefox and IE. However, the next time I start my computer, the pictures are back to loading fuzzy.

Any ideas on what is wrong and how to fix it?

I have a very strange problem. I have three systems that just received a fresh install of Windows XP. I've installed all the latest security updates and the system has nuSecure as it's anti-virus software. For some reason, and this happens with all three systems, when I visit sites sometimes they load correctly and sometimes they don't. When they don't, the images are red X's (as if it couldn't retrieve it).

I've reset winsock, reinstalled Java, disabled anti-virus and repaired network connection. These systems are fresh installs of Windows XP. I had set them up at my house and I don't recall having any of these issues. After I restored them, I brought them to the other location and this problem continues. Any ideas what could be causing it? I'm leaning towards internet related but I wanted to exhaust all options first.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Some images do not load and display a red X on IE, Chrome and Firefox

Are you saying that this same thing happens on 3 machines? Have you tried disabling any web-filtering that your anti-malware programs may have?

Have you made any changes to your TCP settings? Have you used any "tweaking" programs that customize settings for Windows?

Update on problem:
Say I want to browse the "post your workstation" thread, and I get to it by clicking on a link to the thread under "Last Post". Of course, the thread opens with the page scrolled to the last post, because that's what you clicked on. So, you hit the Home key to scroll to the top of the thread, because you want to read the whole thing. The images are loading, and there's no problem, but as soon as the LAST image finishs loading, the page jumps to the very last post, which is annoying when you have to go back and find your place again. That's what's driving me insane.

So, is there any way that you guys know of to disable it? Thanks

--------------- Original Post --------------

You know how if you go to, say, the 2005 Post your Workstation thread, and while the images are loading, you scroll down the page to read posts / look at the pictures, and once the images are done loading, it automatically scrolls the page to the last picture posted on said page?

I find this really annoying, so is there any way to disable it? Did some googling, and all I could find was stuff on "autoscrolling", which isn't this... Thanks!

Hi there -- I have mozilla firefox which has been working properly for a very long time...more than a year and a half, but something is wrong now. All images on a web page rarely load properly, and sometimes when I click a link, it takes me to a new tab and opens a single solitary random photo. It seems like a cookies problem, but the browser is running slower. I ran ediwo malware search and it "fixed" approximately 400 items on my computer. These were not on there when I ran ewido a couple weeks ago. Ad aware also found two items which have also been fixed but the overall problem is not.

this morning i tried checking it out again but it's still the same thing.
i asked my friend who has a pc at her home as well to check if she is having the same problem with friendster as i am. she told me her account was working well and she can view all of her friends pictures.
i got scared so i ran detected some viruses but i was able to delete it.

up until monday i could view all my pictures and everything was working fine.
then all of a sudden not all pictures would load..i can't see my most friend's photos..just icons with red x's.
initially i thought nothing of it..thinking it just had something to do with the site. my sister, using her account, can view her friends' photos either.
i checked the following day and it was still the same. so i asked a friend of mine who has a pc at home to check if friendster isn't working for her as well. she told me the pictures were loading fine.
so i ran a scan using NOD32. it detected some viruses but was able to remove them. i forgot what they were. then i checked the site but it was still the same. i downloaded a free version of LAVASOFT AD-AWARE 2008 then ran a scan again. checked the site again..same thing.

i have two browsers IE and firefox..the images won't load on both.

I run both IE 8 and Firefox on my Dell Dimension system. I'm having problems now with both browsers taking forever to load. This may be a virus or network problem. IE 8 just loaded now after 15 minutes (exactly - I timed it).

- Once it's loaded once, both browsers load in normal amounts of time.
- I haven't downloaded any new add-ons lately unless one browser or the other installed one in the background.
- The problem just started today after a reboot.
- I've also noticed that my network icon in the taskbar doesn't show up anymore when I first boot but by the time IE opens, it has showed up.
- Using ipconfig, I did determine that I am on the network and connected immediately after boot up (router also shows me connected immediately).
- I've tried running IE from the command line with iexplore.exe -extoff. It didn't make any difference. I don't know if this works with IE 8 though.
- When I click to open either web browser, the process shows up right away in Task Manager and remains.
- I have all the latest updates to both browsers that I know of.
- I've run a complete system scan with McAfee (fully updated as of today.)

Now I've run out of ideas on what to try. I appreciate any help!

I had to restart a thread because the other one expired. I'm not the most teckie person, but I can usually research the internet enough to find an answer or solution. I'm stuck and it's driving me crazy

I had IE8 on my computer and noticed that on some of my favorite websites, I was getting the dreaded red X. I decide to install Google Chrome to see if I would have the same issue. Using Google Chrome on the same websites - no red X's. Unfortunately, I do not love Google Chrome (font issue, bookmark manager - just prefer the IE features).

I thought maybe the issue was with IE8 so I unistalled it and it reverted back to IE7 - but I'm still having the same issues.

I do have Norton Antivirus running but I figured it can not be that because it is not causing an issue in Google Chrome - right?

I research the Microsoft website...My "Show Pictures" option is turned on...I've tried all their trouble shooting, but I must still be missing something.

The one thing I did notice is that when I click on the red X and hit properties - they all seem to come up as HTML. (Sorry - this is where I'm totally clueless) Do they come up as HTML as a default? Some of these red X's are videos and some I believe are just pictures. Is this image type not supported by IE? I know that I have always used IE as my default browser, but I have not always had this issue.

What am I missing?

I have come across a strange problem with Firefox ( It has started only downloading images in very low quality - this means that transparency comes out as a grey box and every image seems to be in 16 colours or similar - where it looks flat and photos look very blurred - like they've got glue on them on or something. IE does not have this problem.

I have recently been using my laptop to get online via my phone, which acts as a modem and gives access to the net via the mobile phone network. The throughput on this is smaller than normal broadband - that may have something to do with it. But I'm now back on normal internet, have restarted etc, and still Firefox is only downloading images in low quality. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Is there a plug-in, add-on, or any way at all to make it so that images viewed in Firefox, and images alone, are brighter than everything else? So text won't be affected, nor plain solid colors used as background colors for web pages. The reason being that my computer's brightness, contrast, and gamma are all set to 0% thru the NVIDIA Control Panel for the sake of my eyes (when I watch movies they're way too dark this way so I set them instead at 50%, but once I close the movie I have to set them back to 0% because the brightness attacks my eyes otherwise). I'm happy with that minimum brightness level in every way except images. I always wished any and all images--jpgs, pngs, gifs, bmps, etc.--could have their own brightness setting, either on my computer as a whole or just in my Firebox browser. I'd like to make all images and only images about 25-75% brighter than normal. I don't need suggestions to increase the general brightness, even a little, or else my eyes will notice the difference because even just a basic solid white background like the one I'm typing on now would then be too bright for my liking.
Again, I'm only looking for a way to make all images, even if just limited to specifically jpgs, gifs, and pngs, receive their own brightness level, separate from anything else, either all images viewed on the machine, or, what I assume is more likely to exist, just all images viewed on the Firefox browser.

Friday night I ran the online version of nod32. Because it installs an active X component I had to use Internet Explorer. Firefox has been my default browser for years. While running nod32 I was aware something was not quite right because an action that should've opened Firefox opened IE. Afterwards I rebooted and everything seemed to be fine.

This morning Firefox will not open. For an instant an icon appears as it normally does while Firefox is loading but it quickly goes away. Using IE I downloaded another copy of Firefox and installed it with the same result. As a test I downloaded Opera and it runs fine.

Hello, I am curethritis running Windows 8 On a 6-month old Toshiba Satellite. Everything was fine until two days ago when After a Firefox update the browser stopped loading any websites. Thinking something went wrong with the update I uninstalled Firefox, and opened IE to download it again. This is when I realized IE was having the same issue.

To clarify, my wifi connection is fine. Outlook and other web-based programs are working fine. I pinged through Command Prompt, and the results indicate a good connection to the Internet (average response 17ms). Also, dropbox is updating without any problem.

Does anyone know what the problem might be? I get mail from this web site (it is an environmental site) so apparently I have been there before, but I always get the "Unable to connect...can't establish a connection..." message. Always, whether I use Firefox or IE. I have tried many times over the last few months - the site cannot be that busy every single time I try to visit it, night or day, can it? I have not had this problem with any other site on the internet. I have run all my security software several times and nothing ever shows up. Could I inadvertently have blocked this web site in either Zone Alarm or AVG? If so, how?

Any suggestions very much appreciated. Thank you, Cheryl

Answer:Solved: Neither Firefox or IE will load

That site works fine for me using Opera and Firefox so the problems must be with a setting on your computer.

One possibility is that the URL for has somehow got added to your Hosts file, assuming you have one. If you use Spybot you definitely will have a Hosts file and you can check by doing a 'Find Files' search for 'hosts'. Mine is 68KB and I used Wordpad to open it.

If you find a Hosts file I'm afraid you will have to scroll down it and look for the URL and, if you find it, delete it, reboot and try to access the site again. I know this has worked at least once for someone that had problems accessing only one site, so it might just help you as well.

If it doesn't help it will have eliminated one possibility and 'bumped' your post back to the top!

I am able to get into but whenever I try to download a file from there it gives me a timeout error. Also when I try to load google by, it takes forever to load up the website.

The only firewall program that I'm running is windows firewall. I have the current Firefox and my antivirus is McAffee but it doesn't contain a firewall. I am able to access all of these sites from other computers (at work) but not at home.

Does anyone have an idea as to what might be happening and can help me?

Hi I am a firefox user For the last couple of days I can't get it to load. I deleted Reminderfox about that time and installed Essential IPIM (Free Version) in its place. When I deleted ReminderFox I may have deleted parts of FF as well. I have since deleted and re-installed FF but this has not helped. Any ideas?

Answer:Solved: Firefox wont load

This probably messed up your firefox profile, which in turn could be why firefox will not load. Read through this link here to set up a new profile to see if that works.

Let us know how it goes ; )

EDIT : Just remembered, before you do that see if it firefox boots up with add-ons disabled, to do this start hold down the shift key while starting Firefox, and see if it runs if it does try disabling add-ons in safe mode then re-enable one at a time until you find the one that is causing the issue, then remove it.

Recently, I've installed the Windows Service Pack 3 for Windows XP. May or may not be the problem, but ever since, Firefox has not worked properly. It will not load pages and results in the "Network Timeout" error page. What is strange is that it does load my school email account which is held server side at the university. I am currently on a VPN network, but have had no problems with firefox in the past. Also, IE works properly, but Firefox refuses to load anything but my server side email account. I do not have a firewall on my computer and I have turned off windows firewall to no avail.

I have already deleted my profile for firefox and uninstalled/reinstalled and it did not help at all.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

First of all let's check you have no extension issues causing your problems. Start Firefox in Safe Mode (from Start > Programs) and if it loads normally and your bookmark access is trouble free then I'd suggest it was an extension problem. If so, disable all your extensions (while in Safe Mode) and close Firefox. Re-open Firefox normally and enable your extensions 1 or 2 at a time (then close and re-open Firefox) to find the culprit(s).

Howdy Ya'll Being on dialup, I've done all I can to make using the internet as efficient as possible. I use Firefox browser and have installed the AdBlock Plus add on. That works really well, BTW. Additionally, I've installed a 3rd party addon called Preloader from Sourceforge. Once a page is loaded, revisiting that page is real snappy.

What this post is all about is every time I reboot my machine, the first time I visit any site its like I've never been there before. Typical dialup.. Slow step by step loading of even the smallest graphic. Just wonder if there is some setting in FF I've missed that might help this.

Answer:Solved: Firefox page load time

Your "ISP" could be the culprit to slow browsing. I tried several and have settled on "" [] with great satisfaction. I use SeaMonkey as my browser, and it allows use of a proxy, which TOAST accommodates. It makes all the difference in the world! Further, TOAST provides a multi-setting accelerator that really does work. I use "maximum" for sites where graphics display is not important and "very good" when I am downloading pictures, which I do every day.

All the OC settings were reset, and i "ignored cpu fan " ( it was at N/A )and disabled "wait for f1 prompt". but it's still the same.

Has something been pushed too far ? With everything back to default speeds surely it should be ok. It was highly clocked but with high flow cooling and reading up on stuff well within it's capablilites. At bios the cpu is running at 21/22 degress

any ideas guys as I'm very stuck. ( for a reletive newbie )

Answer:CPU fault/windows wont load. please help me!

So, did you actually reset CMOS or do you "think" it reset itself? I've never heard of it "reseting itself".

Also, CPU FAN's probably saying that because you have no fan connected, as you have water cooling. Don't worry about that.

It probably corrupted the boot sequence on your Windows installation. See if you can do a repair install with your WINXP CD.

Otherwise, it's time to re-install Windows (unless somebody else has better advice).

Some Images Do Not Load in IE7

I got a new dell computer on May 28th.

It came with XP SP2 and IE 6. Images would not load in IE, so I figured I'd need to upgrade to SP3 as well as upgrading IE to 7.

I'm a dial up user, and I use AOL. The browser within AOL (which I always thought was IE) will load the images fine, but I don't like to use it much because you don't really go full screen. Most of the images I notice don't load are from my own website, but it does it on many other sites as well. However, on AOL the images load fine on my website and all other sites.

I've checked to make sure in tools that I can view images, and I've run Avira. Nothing was found, which I figured since it is a brand new computer.

In another thread on this forum someone suggested visiting a site that recommended finding ie.inf and repairing IE. Well, that cannot be found on the computer. So the next suggestion in that document was to run sfc /scannow which is supposed to be system file checker, but when I ran it it was called Windows File Protection and it stated "Please wait while windows verifies that all protected Windows files are intact and in their original versions." I was suprised at how long it took to do since the computer seems super fast at everything else. But...that didn't work.

whenever I load any webpage or website it does not load all the images only randomly, even when I refresh the images that show up/load are random in order.

How do I load all images?

Load Images: ticked
for the originating website only: unticked
Googleweb Accelerator: DSL, prefetch disabled
Fasterfox: turbo-charged, prefetch disabled

Answer:Not all Images load

A few things I can think of that might affect images:

* Empty the cache.

* Some reasons for images not displaying can be found here. They include what has already been tried but there are a couple of other tests.

* Perhaps worth trying disabling any ad blocking functions in the firewall (if it has any) to see if that makes a difference.

* Disable any other ad-blocker.

* Are you using a hosts file for ad blocking? This might stop some page content from showing.

* Could it be Flash content not showing? If you are you using the 'Adblock' extension, make sure that 'Obj Tabs' is unchecked in the options. Could also try disabling Adblock altogether to see if it's blocking any page content.

* In 'NoScript', see that JavaScript is enabled for a page that is giving trouble (providing you trust the site). Also that the extension is not blocking Flash or Java content on the trusted site.

* Java installed and running OK is it?

* Have you tried running with Fasterfox and the Googleweb Accelerator disabled? I don't know much about the Googleweb Accelerator but you might like to read why Fasterfox can have drawbacks. Some opinions here. They could mostly be regarding page prefetching though. Perhaps read a few pages of the opinions to get a fair cross-section of views anyway. Also read what Asa Dotzler says about tweaking Firefox. It can work but might not always be a good thing.

Question: Images don't load


This problem has been going on probably as long as I can remember and it's starting to get especially tiresome.

When I open a page with many images (such as on deviantArt) my browser will load maybe one or two, and not the rest. I tried connecting via cable as opposed to wireless but the problem did not solve itself. This goes for both IE and Firefox.

My mother's Dell Latitude which runs XP (using IE) is able to load images fine. I disabled the Windows firewall and emptied all caches, even changed internet security providers recently (to AVG) which still did not solve the problem.

However, when I was abroad I connected via wireless where I was staying and the images loaded in a heartbeat. I work in art so seeing the images is more aless essential. Please help

Answer:Images don't load

"when I was abroad I connected via wireless where I was staying and the images loaded in a heartbeat"

Assuming you were using the same laptop, it does prove there's nothing wrong with your operating system or any settings on it. So that leaves the internet provider you use at home. I would contact them about it.

Incidentally, switching to AVG for antivirus was a bad move. It's got very weakest virus protection only slightly better than having no protection at all.

I recently (2 weeks ago) upgraded my Windows 98 to Windows XP home edition. Since the upgrade, whenever I'm surfing the web, advertisements won't load on the page. There is an image placeholder (that little "x" thing) but even when I click on "show picture", nothing comes up. Its EXTREMELY annoying! More annoying than the ads themselves. I only have the firewall that came with XP and have no pop up stopper enabled. Along with this problem, I cannot get games to load on since the upgrade. I have contacted both Windows help and Pogo help and I am getting nowhere. Hoping maybe someone here can help me please!!!!! I do have the most recent Java enabled as well (thats what pogo thought the problem was.......NOT)

I recently purchased a new computer. Its a Dell 3000, Windows XP, 1 gig RAM... For the past few days when I'm online images don't always load. It's random after each refresh the problem either gets better or worse. It happens to any image or icon. I use firefox 1.0.7 so I tried IE, still the same problem. I'm out of guesses. I have McAffe Security Center installed with Antivirus, Privacy Service and Firewall. I tried disabling it by closing it out and the problem still exists. Please someone help. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Images Won't Load in Browsers

Problem is "I have McAffe Security Center installed with Antivirus, Privacy Service and Firewall." It will block images from sites unless they are on your safe list - either change the settings - or better yet - unistall it and go with better - less inasive - not to mention free programs to meet your needs.

i.e. AVG for anti-virus

Essentially much of my problem is tied to one website, Facebook. However I have experienced periodic problems with other websites over the last week as well...though not as extensive and certainly not as persistent. For example I'm seeing a red X on this IE forum home page header just below where it the headers reading Tech Support Forum > Microsoft Support.

For those familiar with Facebook, I cannot view my friends' profile photos (nor my own.) Other images on the website (photo albums, other non-photo graphics) appear with no problem. This has been going on for about a week. Initially I could see a random profile picture or two and my own profile photo would occasionally show up. Then they all turned to the little red X's.

I've tried the following suggestions I've found on the web with no real success:
deleted temp files, deleted cookies, turned off pop-up blocker temporarily, added Facebook as safe website (for pop-ups and cookies), restored IE to original settings, installed latest version of Java. I also downloaded Firefox and has success viewing the site correctly during my first 2 visits, however now no profile photos can be seen using Firefox either. A few days ago, I started seeing some profile photos again (but the majority were still X's.) I was having more widespread internet problems last night and deleted temp files again, but now the few photos that were showing up are entirely gone.

I'm running Vista, using IE 7 and am not that computer savvy (... Read more

Answer:Cannot load game images

Hmm, that sounds like codec/player issues maybe..
What OS and browser do you use?

I know Firefox needed plugins and still had trouble with pogo...
Internet Explorer should work by default, but you still may need flash player updates.. Or Java..

That's the trouble with changing PC's.. The old one was updated and tweaked to work fine, but the new one doesn't have all that yet.

Guess there could be an ad blocker, blocking those images too..

Things to think about.

Hope I'm posting in the right forum, if not I apologize. I'm also sorry that I have indeed read about this online but can't find a solution to make it stop happening.

When I go to certain sites (example is Myspace) certain images don't load. Sites almost always load flash animation and most pics, but the ones left behind with a red x are usually .jpg (all the ones I've seen so far). An example of this happening would be if I went to a friends myspace page and scrolled down I would see that some or all of their friend pictures haven't loaded and are a square with a red x. I can almost always right-click the image and it will load. I have checked out almost everything on my end, besides changing hardware (modem) or reinstalling (browser, OS). This happens in IE7 for me as well as Firefox. When it is in Firefox it isn't a red x but the 3 shapes symbol for a picture loading or not yet loaded. I know my browser and internet connection are working but why aren't all the images being loaded on any given web site?

Answer:Red X's, all images don't load on web page

Hi allI'm putting together a site thru Dreamweaver but have got some strange white boxes with a red cross in. Does anyone know what these are? I have taken this from a template.My site is:click herethankssteve

Answer:Unsure what images are trying to load

Your browser's telling you that it knows a .gif image should load in the space but it isn't on the server - it's probably still on your hard drive. The path to the gif is shown as being a spacer gif in the images folder in your web, so I suggest that you check and see what's happened. If you have an FTP program use it to look in your images folder for the file - it's showing in the code as being the same spacer in all cases, and I suspect there should be a button image somewhere with the template.

Okay, my sister has a Sony Vaio laptop that's a couple of years old, but it's got a P4, gig of ram and Windows XP, so it's not so bad.

Recently, she's had a problem with some images not loading in any browser she (meaning me after she gave up) has tried: Chrome, Firefox, IE, etc.

I've gone in and made sure Allow Images to be Shown is ticked in the options, I checked the Windows Firewall and it's set to allow them just fine, I even tried turning off the firewall completely (temporarily) just to see if that would do it and no dice.

I've checked her virus scanner (AVG) and Spybot and they're not blocking the browsers either (I've tried disabling one, then the other, then both, just to see if that would do it and again, no dice.)

From what I can tell, something's up when it's loading in some of the background stuff maybe? Like some of the html code isn't loading right.
I tried doing the "inspect element" option in firefox and clicked on some places that should have images and it doesn't show that there should be images there.

The weird thing is that it does load some images just fine, such as the Google logo image, etc., but, for example, if you go to the Google homepage, instead of the black bar at the top with all the different options "search, images, maps, etc" it's replaced with just little white boxes in a row with the names of the links in them. The links still work, but the picture of the buttons do not.

Facebook is completely unusable as are so... Read more

I recently installed xp sp3 over a messed up xp home edition. I had no way of backing files up first, so did not do clean install.

All is working good except images, buttons, (yes even those annoying ads) will not load in Firefor OR Explorer.

So I'm guessing it's a windows thing since neither works.

I've reinstalled drivers. I've searched the internet over.

Tried to register on other sites I found first to get help, funny thing is the security code image... LOL I couldn't see it to be able to type it in... therefore could not register.
Glad this site allowed me to see the image!!!
