I cannot see the Editorial Cartoons either in the NY Times or the Washington Post (except for Tom Toles in the Post). I also cannot see my ''user name'' when logged in to http://reviews.cnet.com/5200-6142-0.html. Obviously I've turned something off in WinXP but I don't know what! Can anyone help me get my cartoons and the
missing parts of Cnet Forums back? (I have also lost the lines between posts, the link ''Start New Discussion'', etc)
I found the link to start this discussion by fishing around until my mouse curser turned from an arrowhead to a pointing hand, and blindly clicking on what I hoped was this link. I suppose I've pulled some stupid *****, but I can't figure out what!

Compaq S3000V
WinXP Home W/SP2
Firefox
Thunderbird
1gB RAM
ZoneLabs Security Suite
BitDefender Free Edition
Spyware Blaster
Ad-Aware SE Personal
MS Anti-Spyware

I have turned off the ZL Security Suite & BitDefender
one-at-a-time to see if any of the settings were doing it, but no success, so I am left with looking for something not done correctly in WinXP. I enabled loading of ALL the listed stuff in msconfig-start up.
No help. Whats the answer??

It might be to do with your Firefox settings. Go to Tools --> Options then go to the "Web Features" section. Make sure the "Load images" checkbox is enabled, and also go into the exceptions sections and check that gif files aren't somehow blocked.

Hope this helps,
Adi
