    well i like safari better than firefox, but the only thing that makes me mad is some web sites do not load pictures. All i get are these little blue squares with question marks in them. I am using 10.5.2 and the latest version of safari. What is this and how can i fix it. A page refresh doesn't do anything for these. I am attaching a screen shot from a downloads section of the apple website. Thanks for any replies. :confused:

    Can you post what is in the activity window for one of those pages?

    Window (menu) > Activity (menu item)

    Usually this is a website problem. The blue squares with the question mark indicates a bad link (which could be temporary) to a jpeg file or something else on another one of the website servers.

    When you come upon this problem in Safari, launch another web browser (ie, Firefox) and go to the same page. See if you get the same results.

    Also try emptying Safari's cache:

    Safari -> Empty Cache...

    Then reload the page in question.

    yeah, it doesn't do it in firefox, only in safari, at least for me.
