Help - weird HTML table / image problem with Firefox

Post by Flatlander » Fri Jan 07, 2011 8:35 pm

So I recently updated my website and found a weird problem with this page. Using tables, the page should display an image on the left, four links in the center of the page, and an image on the right. It works fine in Internet Explorer and Google Chrome. It also works fine in Firefox when viewing the local HTML file on my computer, but when viewing it online in Firefox, the right-hand image is missing. Neat feature, huh? :evil:

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

Must be something with the image - same problems here. However, if I convert the picture to e.g. PNG format, it works.

If I reduce the whole thing to...
<html>
<img src=\"images/ad_astra_02.gif\" />
</html>
...there is no picture!
If I use the PNG image, I can see it.

Well, your comment provided the additional clue I needed - I have the Adblock plug-in installed for Firefox and it was blocking the image, apparently because the file name started with \"ad.\" So I renamed the image and now it works fine - thanks :D

Ah, ok - I've got AdBlock Plus installed as well ;-)
