I use internet explorer as my browser, and have had no problem viewing my website online before, but yesterday it started not showing all the images and sometimes couldn't even find the page giving me an error 404 message. My webhost can't find anything wrong, so maybe its just my browser mucking up. If anyone gets a chance to check out my webpages in internet explorer please could they let me know if they get missing images or error 404 messages, it especially seems to happen on the whats new page, and on the gallery page when you click on an image. Oh yes heres the web address olleysarmies.co.uk/home.html

1) Stop running IE. It may have picked up adware or some other evil software. IE is a horrible security risk to your PC's health

2) Install Firefox + Adblock Plus + Filterset.G

Oh, and the site looks fine to me.

Echo Crusoe's comments re Firefox.

The site looks fine. And getting other browser than IE helped a LOT with the Ad-ware. Firefox is nice alternative with tabbed browsing and all.

Even if you don't use the tabs and all the fancy plug-ins like Image Zoom or Smart Moves (without which I can't surf the web anymore), Firefox is still _a lot_ safer than IE.

Your website works fine on this end, btw.

Works OK in Opera too.

Thanks to everyone for checking our website and for your helpful advice and suggestions. I've downloaded firefox and the website works fine using that, so it looks like the problem is solved. Thanks again for helping out, cheers Bob and Jackie

There are definitely differences between how IE and Firefox handles HTML code (especially when it comes to CSS). It's pretty much standard practice to always test a site with both browsers so you don't miss something.

As web developers we can't expect everyone to use our preferred browser.
