User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040914 Firefox/0.10.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040914 Firefox/0.10.1 The etrade web site is unusable with Firefox because many buttons and other graphics are invisible. I used to access etrade with Mozilla but it has been a while and they may have changed their web site. So this may be an evangelism issue. But they are a fairly high-profile site and it is not good if Firefox can not view it. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Delete all cookies for any etrade domain (us.etrade.com, www.etrade.com etc.) 2. Enter https://us.etrade.com into the address bar and press ENTER 3. Actual Results: Missing buttons, such as the orange "LOG ON" button under the username/password fields. I will try to attach screen shots showing Firefix vs. Internet Explorer (FF on Linux, IE on Windows XP)

Do you have Preferences - Web Features "for the originating web site only" (under Load images) checked? etrade's images are coming from akamai.net.
Yes, that was the problem (images 'from originating site only' was selected). Sorry for the trouble. And thanks for responding so quickly! But, I wonder if the existence of this feature is consistent with Firefox's philosophy of having a "simplified" UI conprehensible to ordinary folks. In other words, is this feature likely to cause more trouble (with bogus bug reports like mine) than it is worth? A compromise would be to bury it under an 'Advanced' tab. Thanks again
