    Firefox ...

    I have recently switched from IE to Moz Firefox ....... and for the most part Im wondering why I didn't do this a long time ago, but there is one thing I can't figure out ..

    I am building a website and I can't get any of the images to show in firefox. They are just .gif and .jpg files and I have looked read alot on firefox and nothing helps me in getting those images to display.

    If it's an image that I have attached an "alt" tag to then it shows the "alt" description. The other images don't show and if I try to force a show (right click-> "view image") an alert box shows and says "c is not a registered protocol" (c as in c:/) or "d is not a registered protocol" (d = d:/).

    Im sure its a simple configuration issue, but the solution eludes me ......... Any ideas???

    Take a look under Tools --> Options --> Web Features. Makes sure that you have Load Images checked.

    Screenshot so we can see what you're seeing and perhaps the HTML code. Could be a path issue. Have you made sure that IE can see the images?

    I'm guessing, by the error message, you have something like this:

    Code:
    <img src="c:\some\dir\picture.jpg" alt="picture">
    Try to use:
    Code:
    <img src="file://c:\some\dir\picture.jpg" alt="picture">
    Blame IE for showing the image when the tag is wrong.
