    Likely caused by using AdBlock or another extension. I've run into the same problem and that was the cause.

    Hmm, hard to say for certain. You can check if there are any errors occurring on the page. In Firefox under the Tools menu there is an option for Error Console. You may need to clear it then reload the page to clear away the clutter. From Safari, you can go under the Window menu and choose the Activity option. This will bring up a window that lets you see the various items the page downloaded. You can see if any had trouble downloading.

    Another possibility is that the block is happening at the firewall level or if you're at work it may be getting blocked by them, that happens to me a bit. The screen shot you took of how t should be, was that done from the same network?
