This is the page with the broken images. 
The web page does not change once reloaded i.e. images remain broken.

WFM.  when this happens, try right-clicking on an image and do "view image".  if
you still don't get anything, try reload for just the image.

good chance this is a cache issue if it shows on first load, but not on reload.

Actually, I do see this sometimes, but not specific to any website.  Clearing
cache fixes it.  Might be related to bug 76431 if you're running two copies of
Mozilla simultaneously.  That's what probably does it for me.

This is a fairly new problem. I started noticing perhaps a week ago.
A place where i consistently can reproduce (unless i have the images cached) is by 

going to
click "multimedia" link
Click the "Play Video" link
The little window with a frame for a player and a right frame with a scrollbar
and more video stories appears.

The images in that right pane are mostly broken, untill i reload frame.
The error intermittantly also occures on the front page.

Adding top100 keyword.
Severity: normal → major
Ever confirmed: true

images. All broken on first load.

I visited 2 days ago and all was well.
Revisiting today: an image link i clicked on the previous visit (small pic of 
diamonds) was now appearing as broken. Reloaded (not ctrl/shift+reload) and it
displayed OK.

perhaps insignificant, but the image that did NOT display when i now revisited,
was the ONLY image i clicked on on that page during the previous visit.

I was having this same problem - images not loading on first load of several
regularly visited site, would load after clicking reload. Clearing disk and
memory cache seems to have cleared it up.

Should have added - this was happening to me with Build 2002031103 under Windows
2000, so it appears to be a cross-platform bug.

saw this as late as yesterday at An image i hadn't seen before at all
was indicated as broken (top story image). A "View image" revealed it was all
there. Hit back-button: pic now also rendered on main page.

I get the same bug. Just downloaded RC2 for WinXP. It happens on a number of
sites i tried. Only way i can get it to render properly is to hit Shift+Reload
so it won't read from the cache.

Is anyone still seeing this using a newer build?

Colin, that sounds like bug# 140561 - pipelined images are not loading.

No images are showing at
Images at that site have URLs like:

Maybe there is a problem with that double // after the domain? Images are shown
when one slash is eliminated.

The double slashes result in a proxy server error at my site.

comment #18 also sounds like a different problem than was originally reported.  

Haven't heard back from earlier reporters so marking this resolved wfm.
