i should also add that i have tried loading the images directly by copying and pasting their urls. Ie gives that page can't be displayed page and firefox gives me that window prompt ( can't remember what it said.
Firefox 1.04 won't display certain images. A good example is when i load up yahoo, but FF won't display the big "YAHOO!" logo at the top mid. Also it won't display the ads on the left and right. A blank space with some small rectangular logo just takes the images place for the yahoo logo and left and right is blank. Also hotmail.com, everywhere is blank and i can only see the loging and passward image on the right.
I tried IE 6( on the samecomp) on yahoo and it won't load the same images.
At this point i tried loading up yahoo webpage on my laptop with FF and it loaded the yahoo webpage perfectly.
I tried cleaning the cache, history, and temp internet files, etc for both browsers, but nothing works.
This problem starting after i was streaming a video on firefox on the cnet.com website. I hit the back buttom while the video was playing and my browser froze. I atempted to close the window and just ended the program. When the window closed i got an xp error window asking if i wanted to send in the report or not. i started the firefox browser again to open to yahoo it wouldn't display the images. It seems that when i hit the back button during the streaming video some file must have become corrupt.
So far i have tried reinstalling firefox, flash, shockwave, window media player and nothing works. I also tried win xp system restore and it didnt work. I really don;t want to format my computer again, because this same problem happened a few weeks ago when i was watching a streaming video.
