Pictures not loading on pages

    It seems the majority of pictures on any hub I look at that pictures are not loading. Either the space is blank, the gray box over them or the red X in the upper left hand corner.
    I have even opened the slideshow to see if I can see the pictures there and get the same blank, red X, etc.
    I do wait until the tweet and facebook links show up, but still not seeing all images.

    I know being on dial-up connection slows down the process, but I could refresh the page before the layout change and get all images to show, until now.
    Is this happening to visitors to the site also? Could affect traffic that people keep talking about dropping.

    And yes, I have done all of the cache clearing, history deleting and restart of browser. I am also using IE9 on Windows 7.
    Note: I am able to see images on sites outside of Hubpages.

      @Michael

      Sorry to hear about the problems you are experiencing.

      Are you still having trouble viewing images?

      Does the issue persist if you use a different browser (Firefox, etc.)?

      Do you have URL for one of your Hubs that is not displaying images?

        Hello Matthew. Yes, I am still having hubs that will not show all images when I try to look at them., even though I am seeing images outside of hubpages.
        I use IE8 and Firefox 3.6 ( Later versions of Firefox cause too many issues)

        The url I am having the most problem with is: http://michaelwillis.hubpages.com/hub/t … sical-pain
        I use to be able to get all the images to show u.p by refreshing the page until the end of last week. Now, I might get half of them to show up.
        I tried my Firefox and got the same result

          If everyone else can see all the images, I guess that is great. I hope others do. If not, then it could hurt the hub. I would rather it be an issue with my computer.
          Thanks for looking into this Matthew.

            Hi Michael,

            Your browser is indicating you are using IE9 in Windows 7 32-bit.

            I just looked at your Hub in IE9 in Windows 7, IE8 in XP, and Firefox13 in OS X and saw no broken/missing images.

            You may want to clear your cache and restart the browser.

            This FAQ thread for bug reports has links to instructions for clearing your cache.
            http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/99079

            Firefox 3.6 is more than 2 years old; I would also advise upgrading to Firefox 13.

            You may also want to call your ISP and see if they can help diagnose any potential network issues.  There could be any number of network connectivity issues affecting your connection, including (but not limited to) ISP DNS server issues.

              Thanks Matthew. I will try the local ISP. I know how to clear the cache and have done it many times as stated in OP. Hopefully they will have an answer.
              My Windows 7 is actually 64 bit. And Any Firefox past 3.6 has issues with dial-up. I tried them and had to immediately go back to 3.6 to be able to use their browser.  IE 10 also causes me crashes, so I stay with 9, which works.

              The main point though...if everyone else can see the images, that is great. As long as my hub does not have an issue to readers, then I can live with that.

                @Michael  If you are in the land of dial-up, you might want to look into Opera.

                It has a "turbo" mode that you can enable that works well at reducing the bandwidth needs of a site, by compressing images and such even further. 

                It does have an impact on the quality of images, but you can toggle the turbo features.
                http://www.opera.com/browser/turbo/

                I have used it before and Opera is a pretty nice browser as well.

                  I will look into your suggestion Matthew, thanks. Dial-pup sucks. lol
