Sometimes when i go to a web site with pictures, i'll get some pictures just fine but others appear as a box with a red x in them. Whats up with that? Thanks for your help in advance......

I've tried all the things in both of these links. I still can't see pictures on some web pages. Any other suggestions?

There are a couple of possibilities I can think of:

1) The picture is actually hosted on a different site, and the host site has changed, but the image directions haven't: result is the little red box with an x. In fact, I've seen that on a couple pages on this website. (I can't remember which ones, sorry).

2) It's a third party image and your browser is blocking them with the resulting white box with a red x.

Posting links to the sites in question as tg1911 suggested will help determine if the problem is with the website or webpage or in some way with your computer. And our fearless code identifiers and interpreters might be able to determine the problem with the webpage if it is the culprit.
