Why do I sometimes have icons repeated on a row on the TSG pages? It only seems to happen on this site.

never use IE but will try it
It usually happens when I open a thread or post in a new tab.

the same link took 5 minutes to show up in IE, no multiples, but also no icons of any kind either.
All icons on users show an empty white box, but avatars are there. Strange.

p.s. I have seen this multiple strange icons often, but I recently updated Firefox to version 3.6.13

If it were only Firefox, I'd say it's a problem with Firefox. But, IE isn't normal either.

I use KIS 2010, constantly updates and I downloaded Superantispyware not too long ago, SAS seems to always give me a problem (whenever I tried it in the last 2 years by the way.)

Now that I checked TSG with IE, I think it's time to double-check FF settings.
Any other ideas?
If no one else has this problem, than it is not TSG.

Try running FF in safe mode (not Windows safe mode, just the browser). To do that click on Start - All Programs - then Mozilla Firefox and from the right-click menu select "Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)" and see if it still occurs. It could be an add-on that's blocking something.

Check your Kaspersky settings to make sure you're not blocking scripts.

had to switch browser, Firefox now completely froze.
Yes I do have add-ons for FF, will check those.
Yes, I changed some settings in Kaspersky for nerworking.

I will do all of your suggestions. Now it's becoming clear, it is not a TSG problem.
K-Meleon browser is acting normal, showing everything.
Thanks for all your help tonight, it will take a while to check so many settings.

How to start Firefox in Safe Mode
http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/safe mode

In safe mode no add-ons or plug-ins will run.
So try it and if you do not have any trouble then you know the trouble is with the add-ons or plug-ins.
Then think back to what was last installed or updated and disable it and restart Firefox and see how things work.

Is IE back to normal or you still are having trouble with the icons?

If IE isn't working either, troubleshooting Firefox may not resolve this... :)

What about your desktop? And programs? Are you only having trouble with the Internet?

I ran FF in Safe Mode, looked ok. IE still has a problem but it does not matter to me.
Checked script setting, they seem ok.
I had my Firefox extensions / add-ons for a while and they never used to give me trouble.

Kaspersky ran overnight and found some malware :eek: on the external drive and nothing on the hard-drive and fixed it.
Everything seems to be back to normal. :)
thanks for helping. I should have checked everything before thinking, it's TSG, sorry TSG! :eek:
