Interesting thing about people having problems with using FIREFOX and DBA...

Would seem that... Photobucket changed some parameters on their hosting and it screws with  Firefox although Google CHROME seems to work fine.....

Excerp from mozillazine (place to trouble shoot FIREFOX Problems...

    The original links only point to the photobucket page of the image, not to the image itself.
    A referrer problem?

Photobucket recently changed something and it now breaks image links in Firefox that have worked for a decade. Instead of displaying the image they are redirecting to the page. I've had to edit old posts here that use the "s16.photobucket.com" subdomain and switch them to "i16.photobucket.com" to get them to work.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Interesting... Now how do I convince site owner to message his code...

Moving to Web Development / Standards Evangelism as it appears to be a site-specific problem.

The solution is very simple, he just needs to change the "s" in the beginning of the image URL's to "i" and it will all work. You could try posting the problem and the solution somewhere on their forums... is there a "moderation" section? Also, another strange thing... I copied the following URL into the addressbar:

http://s23.photobucket.com/albums/b372/dunebuggyarchives/website/button_red.jpg

And then manually edited it to:

http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b372/dunebuggyarchives/website/button_red.jpg

And after refreshing the page the site works fine.... the images are automatically redirecting from s23 to i23. Very odd.


Seems the solution would be a rewrite of the Photobuket addresses in the HTML code for site....

And way.... This seems to be why Firefox has trouble with displaying site correctly....

Thanks to Dale, the DBA now has metalflake buttons on the left nav bar in Firefox again!  I know there are a ton of other places (Gallery for one) where this fix may need to be applied... Paul...
