My embedded photo doesn't show up in Firefox
 
I have a website with an embedded photo on the main page. When I go to the main page Firefox can't find the file for the photo and displays the webhost logo in place of it. Epiphany finds it fine. Preferences for both are the same.

any ideas why?

The URL would help.

Above is the url to the photo.

Tripod doesn't allow hotlinking. The reason one browser sees the picture is because it's in your cache.

But I created the link in tripod using their tools. IE and FF in windows find and load it. Epiphany in Linux finds and loads it. If its from cache why can't FF do the same. Did the aerial photo load in your FF?

More explanation is needed to solve the problem.

It seems to work perfectly well for me

If I click on that picture link you gave me I get Tripod's generic "this image hosted by Tripod" image. If I click on that, I get your picture.

It's a hotlink prevention thing. Now your picture is in my cache, I get it now.
No great mysteries involved.

OK. I went to the home page and clicked where the image should be to enlarge it. A new page with the tripod logo in the upper left corner came up. I hit the page reload button and the photo came up (must have never done that before), but, returning to the home page and reloading that I still had the logo wher the small photo should be. I right clicked on the logo and chose to view the image. A new window with the logo in the upper right opened as before. I hit reload and the small photo came up. Only then did the samll image start showing up in the home page. Thanks for the tip.

But why did I have the problem only with FF, and only in the linux version of FF. Every other browser I used, Windows or Linux, got it on the first time I opened the webpage on that browser; at work, at home on another PC, or on the same PC with another browser (Epiphany, which is also mozilla).

An explanation for that would help in my Linux education. The more I know the more I can fix it myself.

I apologize. My frustration is geting the better of me. I appreciate your help.

I have just run across this exact problem with an image hosted on someone else's site.

The image was NEVER in my firefox cache, because the only thing I was ever able to see in firefox was the "hosted by" logo. Clicking on the "hosted by" logo has no effect -- the actual picture does not come up.

The image is NOT an embedded link -- I tried loading it directly using its own URL -- http://members.tripod.com/paint_raven/342b03c0.jpg

I was able to bring the picture up immediately in IE.

There is something more than caching going on here.

No doubt. While the proceedure I outliine above worked after a few days the problem returns and I have to repeat it, and, as I say, it has always worked fine on epiphany.

It's a weird world. After all the problems above continuing on for months all of a sudden the image just started consistently showing up. All I can say is I have always kept my software up-to-date and, coincidence or not, after one of those updates it just started working.

Go figger.
