Two things come to mind:
1. Its a flash animation, not a pic?
2. You might have blocked it.. Try it with the PressF1 pics by right-clicking on the image and selecting "Block Images From This Server". If you have, you'll need to un-block them :-)

hi chill

um ive only just installed it and havent had a chance to block anything! ive tried sussin my usual favorites.. IE and Opera can load the same pics, but Mozilla doesnt.. the pics are on mpegx.com are an example of this.. on the home there is a pic under the heading "featured software" and also the picture immediately to the left of the "musicmatch jukebox plus 8,.2 software" and also the picture directly under the heading "Software Pick" all other pictures on that page load.. also went to xtramsn.co.nz and nba.com (which has pics galore) and they load fine.

The images on that page do not load in my Firebird either. The code is not compatible with Firebird for some reason.

I was wondering whether it has something to do with Java and have just discovered that my version of Sun Java is corrupt. When I get that sorted out I will be able to see if it makes any difference or not. Meanwhile others with Firebird may report their results with that page.

The problem with the mpegx page is the links to the affected images are broken because the author tried to use a windows style "\" in the link rather than the normal "/".

The page links to:
