I have updated the java to the newest, also when i got o0n myspace to check out bands, the band music wont load. It says "loading XML" and thats it and at theb ottom left it says "done" Any ideas??

    What do you mean by java images? Do you have trouble with all java on sites? Can you view applets?

    As for myspace, I've never seen an audio player on a page (only been a handful of times) but I'm guessing it's just a flash player that uses xml to parse the music information to display on the player. Can you see normal xml files? For example, if you go here do you see an xml document? If so, then I'm guessing you're not having problems with the browser or java but with flash and should try re-installing it.

    The XML file from your first pic displayed correctly.

    Can you do me a quick favor since you're here...post links to those pages so I can go there without typing in character by character from your screenshots. To me I've seen no java yet at auto trader or anything on the site that would make me think there's java anywhere.

    Links please...

    Well, you're not missing anything on the my space account music, pretty basic chord progressions. :p

    Seriously though, that's a flash player and has nothing to do with java.

    The images on the autotrader page are just jpegs that are loaded into javascript (not java) and displayed. Can you see the images here: http://autotrader.com/fyc/img_popup.jsp?car_id=195881900

    Those are straight up jpegs with no javascript loading. I'm sorry, let me think about this for a bit and I'll get back to you. Seems like maybe--maybe--you're having trouble with javascript in which case your browser could be screwy but it shouldn't effect both browsers.

    Do you have a firewall like Kerio or ZA that may be blocking the images?

    ...I don't know... Let me think more on it...

    I don't think AVG has any pop-up/ad blocker but can't remember. How did you do a clean uninstall of Firefox? Did you also remove the profile folder or just re-install. If you didn't remove that folder it will keep those old settings.

    I still don't think it has to do with the browser since it seems to be affecting both IE and FF.

    As for the link I gave you, I lied it does use javascript (sorry--didn't look at the code until now) and I'm willing to bet something on your end is interfering with the javascript.

    In FF, go to Tools | Options | Content and make sure 'Load images' nad 'Enable javascript' are both ticked.

    None are really pertinent to this I don't think but I have the top 3 checked. You can check them all just to be safe and try again.

    Hopefully someone will come along and rescue you, I'll check back tomorrow and hopefully will have a few answers for you.
