    Broken images in IE (sometimes happens)

    anyone know why IE6 would show some images as broken? If i refresh enough times, all my small pictures (edit, delete, info. < 1kb each) will appear. right-click > show image, displays the pics as well.

    mozilla 1.5 works fine

    I guess it could be an overworked server or something that is causing the problem, although it would be weird that it wouldn't happen in mozilla too.

    can you post a link?

    Edit:


    actually, you can try it on another site http://form.unionspeak.com go "Title Here." sometimes the up/down arrows don't show. (click the title to edit it)

    I would imagine it has something to do with the way you are linking the images that IE doesn't like.

    sorry I can't help any further.

    Do you have SP1? I've heard SP1 can screw IE up a bit and make it not show some images. [/idea_from_azz]

    Though that's probably not it. >_>
    So hold me when I'm here

    Love me when I'm gone.

    Some links for those who haven't seen this problem

    before - just loaded page
    after - right-click > show image

    (note: you'll notice the browser name is "avant" but it still uses IE as the backend)

    Fixed
    i just added a preloader js in <head>
    Code:
    <script language="JavaScript">
    <!--
    arImageSrc = new Array (
        "edit.gif",
        "delete.gif",
        "info.gif",
        "email.gif");
    
    arImageList = new Array ();
    
    for (counter in arImageSrc) 
    {
        arImageList[counter] = new Image();
        arImageList[counter].src = "images/" + arImageSrc[counter];
    }
    -->
    </script>
