Viewing pics on here - Browser problems ?

Postby Philsuma » Thu May 19, 2011 2:36 pm

Anyone have any issue or problems with viewing either pics hosted by us or pics hosted by photobucket or similar ?

I am currently rocking Internet Explorer 9 and Cannot view the pics hosted by photobucket ect. I can view our hosted pics and even ALL the pics on other forums...

Anyone have any suggestions ? :?

I'm somehow locked into IE now, though.....I cannot download a previous verison, heck It won't let me download or install firefox !

I.E is still the most used browser out there....on our board here as well.

Most pics - especially photobucket and other pure photohosting sites seem to not show up on Dart Den when you use Internet Explorer 9. Odd

I use IE for most other stuff (admin) and Google Chrome for here - pics.

Which browser are you using ?

So Far, the following Browsers are good to go:

1. Safari
2. Firefox
3. Internet Explorer 7,8
4. Chrome

I guess it would be easier to say which browser is the one that seems to NOT work...

1. Internet Explorer 9 seems to NOT work.

Not since 2008 according to this.

Not being able to install other browsers sounds like a virus problem or something. That sucks to be locked into something especially IE.

Anyone else ? Internet Explorer 9 is sill "bad for pics" for me.

I used I.E to edit and spell check..

and then I switch over and use Google Chrome when I want to view pics.

Oh well, it could be worse....somehow.

Chrome has a built in spell check. Here's how to turn it on: http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?answer=95604

There are also some extensions for Chrome that do the job: https://chrome.google.com/webstore?category=ext

I hate IE. :)
