Images Hosted On Tch Not Showing On Firefox


Recommended Posts

I have a weird problem... not sure what is causing the issue... whether it's my browser, site or server. It has to do with my main blog... h_tp://blog.chatbug.org/


I am using Windows XP with Mozilla Firfox, and only a few hours ago, images on my blog that's hosted on TCH (e.g. default template's background, smileys) stopped showing up. External images shows up fine, and everything looks in order when I load it up on MSIE6. Haven't got a friend with Firefox online at the moment to test this, but a friend with IE also said it shows up fine.


This problem seems to be specific to my main blog. When I load up my other blog (h_tp://restricted.chatbug.org/), the default theme's background images shows up fine on my Firefox.


Hopefully this may help trace possible problems(?!)... Earlier in the day, I made backups of my site from cpanel. After which, I setup redirection from <h_tp://chatbug.org/blog> to <h_tp://blog.chatbug.org>, backed up access logs and activated hotlink protection. I tested the hotlink protection using <http://altlab.com/hotlinking.html> and images seemed to still be displayed, so I altered the hotlink protection until images weren't. Up until then, images were still displaying normally on my computer.


Later in the evening, when I saw images appearing with borders from modifications to the CSS I did a few days ago, I reloaded, thinking that it might be cached version (possibly by my ISP?) showing up. At first, the borders didn't go away, then all TCH-hosted images disappeared. When I clear the cache on my Firefox and reload the site, the images still doesn't load... not even after a reboot of my computer. Even the WYSIWYG editor in WP admin doesn't show up. :(


I tried to restore the home directory and database backup I made that afternoon, but it doesn't seem to help. I'm stumped as to what may be causing this.

:) :wallbash: :wallbash:


If anyone else has Firefox and experiences the same problem loading my site... or not... please let me know. Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong?

Last time I had trouble with images not showing up when I thought they should it was because I had turned on hotlink protection, but hadn't whitelisted the subdomain.


But I am seeing images hosted by your server. Here is an example




What are you expecting to see but aren't?

The "default theme" background for the header (above "Jazz night at Brown Sugar") should be a light blue box wrapping around "blog.chatbug.org" <br> "chatbug’s blog".

Well, by the looks of things... it's probably just my firefox that's giving this problem. Hmm... well, guess I'll see if it fixes itself by tomorrow... or I might try reinstalling firefox on my computer.


So long as my site looks normal to the visitors, that's fine. I can resort to using MSIE (unfortunately) until I resolve this problem. Thanks everyone!

Nope... no ad blockers. The only extensions I use are ForecastFox, Gmail Manager and SearchPluginHacks... which I have had way before I had this weird problem.


Guess re-installation's the way to go. I'll try that sometime tomorrow... it's almost 2am now in Taiwan... goodnight everyone! Thanks again. :)
