    What can I do to fix the problem I am having with Safari (see attached). My OS is up to date and I have all current software updates. Yet, I still get those 'question marks' on some websites. I'm stumped, any help will be appreciated :cool:

    If you are able to see the images on another browser I would Empty Safari's cache and see if the images reload.

    What was the result from using a different browser?

    That question mark means safari couldnt load the image.

    that COULD mean safari doesnt recognize the format, but I highly doubt that... a mainstream browser like safari can recognize nearly every single format im sure.

    Its most like because safari couldnt download the data for the image due to the website having a poor server or the coder not properly linking the image.

    Odd, when I open this up in Firefox I don't even get the pics. I don't think it's a server issue since this is straight from facebook.

    Wouldn't be a Safari problem then

    Likely a link or server issue

    I want to agree with you, except this is ALL the time :confused:. Do y'all think it may have to do with my router possibly? I'm clueless at this point :rolleyes:

    post the link and let us have a look and see if we get them
    the images may be missing or mislinked or too slow loading

    I will bypass posting my personal facebook page (not much to see anyways) and post another link with the same problem. It is a simple search on photobucket. http://photobucket.com/images/imac/

    Well I am able to view the webpage you posted correctly with images and all.

    While the ISP could be at fault I'm going to take the approach that they have a clue as to what they are doing and focus on something that you can look at yourself.

    What router or modem are you using to get online. In fact what does your network setup look like, ie do you use a separate wireless router for example. My focus is on the hardware in your home, I've had my share of malfunctioning routers which don't route all the data correctly to the computer, since images tend to be bigger file sizes compared to text it's possible that the router is failing to send all the data to your computer thus the browser flags certain images as failed.
