This problem is only associated with certain sites too. It’s easier for me to show you what’s wrong , with screenshots.
On LiveJournal.com, my mood icons, and also, my friends’ mood icons don’t show up. They look like this: Icon screenshot.
The white squares are where the little smiley faces are supposed to be. Also, I’ve asked my friends, and they all say they can see the icons with no problem.
Here are my multimedia settings: Multimedia settings. Nothing seems out of sorts there, right?
Another site I have problems with is Proboards. Instead of the usual “New Topic” or “Post Reply” buttons, there are only little pinpoints that I have to aim exactly with my pointer or the finger won’t show up (as in, telling me it’s a link). Here is what it looks like: Proboards Link See the little pinpoints in the top right corner where one would usually see “New Topic” or “Post Reply” buttons? Yes, that’s what those four little dots are. This happens on two Proboards that I visit.
Now before you blame Proboard’s servers, my friends can see them fine. Also, I went to another Proboard, and the buttons there, I can see.
To test if it was my computer, I just went to LiveJournal on another computer in my house, and the white squares instead of mood icons are still there.
This has been happening for months.
Last month I had a few viruses and spyware and I succesfully rid my comp of all of it, and since this was happening way before the viruses hit, I don’t think it’s related (also, the other computer can’t bring up the images either).
So can anyone here figure it out? Also, here’s a link to my LJ friends’ page, see if you can see the icons for yourself.
HELP! I will be your best friend if you can help (well maybe not, but I would greatly appreciate it–it’s been bugging me for months…all this time I just figured it was LJ).
