Hello all,

Okay first off, I was running 2 browsers FireFox(defualt) and IE6. I purchased some webspace at Bluehost. I loaded my page and had some problems. So I simplefied it by rewriteing the page with just the problems so I could target what was going on. I started by viewing my page in IE6, the jpegs looked like crap, like I had saved the jpeg images as a gif. I also had a gif antimation that would not run. So I had my brother look at the site and he could see the antimation and the jpegs as they were suppose to look he was running the same browser. Then I looked at them on another computer and they looked fine running the same browser. Called tech support and they could not help me. Then I decided to update my browser to IE7, same results. But when I viewed through Firefox all looked good. This lead me to beleave that it had to do with my defualt browser. So I switched them out and made IE my defualt. This fixed the jpeg problem but not the antimation problem. Now the jpegs look good in both browsers and the antimation doesnt work in either. I then uninstalled FireFox nothing changed. So I did a search of firefox to see if anything was left behind, I had a bunch of firefox files so I deleted them, nothing changed. Is there a program that will search the registry for any left over files? O ya I recreated the antimation and saved it after I changed the defualt browser to. Does anyone have anymore ideas? Its really starting to make me mad. I mean everyone can see it but I still would like to beable to get everything on my PC to work. I need to see what they see to create a website.

PLEASE HELP, :thumbsup:

I would rather be a little overkill with my computer. Than to have my computer be killed.

Hi swaMprUnner,

There are programs that will help you search the registry, but deleting entries from the registry no matter how trivial they may look can lead to more problems. In a sense you may 'fix' one problem to find that the 'fix' has created two more.

I doubt the problems are related to Firefox but suspect that internet settings are partially responsible. If you open up Internet Explorer and select tools and then internet options change your security settings for all zones back to default as there might be a setting enabled causing problems. Also in the advanced settings reset this to default for the same reasons.

Would it be possible for a screenshot of the website in question focusing on the problem areas?

It is quite typical for things to render differently in IE and Firefox. The first step is to let us see the code and see if you are doing anything that is not cross-browser compatible.
