I just uploaded a website for a client which looked good while previewing locally. When I visit it on the server though some images aren't loading properly. It seems to be quite random, and sometimes they all load like they should. Sometimes images pop up after a sec or so.

This problem occurs in Firefox, Safari doesn't have any problems. All the image links are correct. What am I doing wrong? This is the website: http://alturl.com/ky9o6 and this page seems to have the most problems: http://alturl.com/37czx

  • Can't reproduce any non-loading of images in Opera, Firefox or Safari @ OSX. Are you sure it's not your internet?? Did you ask the client if they experience any issues??

    Sorry to ask, but this is a programming question how?

  • i just viewed both links on firefox 3.6 (on Ubuntu) and (i think) i saw all the images. Didn't see any broken images, etc. Is it possible there might be some inconsistent image extensions? For example, the images might have a mix of JPG. jpg. or jpeg while the HTML might call only the JPG version. And if the image is lower case jpg, it might not work.

  • @Lazarus: It is a web development question that might be programming-related (and thus relevant to SO) or might be network or other-related (and thus irrelevant). For example, if the client is running a strange HTTP server that is choking on the user agent string for Firefox, then it might be programming-related.

  • @Lazarus I was thinking it could be some html or css related error. Since i couldnt find a logical explanation. After reuploading, and viewing on several different computers i think everything loads like it should.

It's possible your web server is (very) underpowered, or the host is just having some kind of issue at the moment. While I haven't had any problem with images not displaying, the site's pages do take much longer to load than I would expect given content and my connection speed. I don't usually get to watch 32k JPEG images render.
Have you contacted support at all yet?
