I seem to be having this problem lately with Internet Explorer, while browsing around various web sites. I notice that web pages seem to finish loading but I get X marks (picture not present fillers) and "action Canceled" where some pictures should be. Sometimes it's just an icon such as the one that represents a hot thread in this forum, sometimes it's an actual picture. Here's the odd thing though, if I right click on it and select show picture or if I refresh the page, the picture comes up fine. It almost seems as though IE is loading up the web pages but is too impatient to wait for all the pictures to load, how can I stop this behavior? Is there some setting that I can change? Here's a little extra info if it helps: I am using version 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp1.020828-1920 I am on a cable connection, pages usually load up instantly so this all seems to happen in a matter of seconds.
