    I use maxthon(version 2.5.18.1000) for most of my browsing,latly i've noticed alot of broken(non-loading) images on websites(like amazon) and things such as google images search,from what I understand maxthon runs off the IE engine which I currently have IE8 installed on a windows XP computer,i'm leaning towards IE8 being the problem but i'm not totally sure...i've tried the following so far...


    Remove IE8 and reinstall
    Ran spybot,superAnti-spyware
    Messed with the secruity settings and Browser settings

    Use Firefox or Google Chrome.

    Do the images show in other browsers?

    Something in the options maybe that is blocking them like popup or adblock? I'd save myself a headache and just use Firefox.

    ...........But getting Firefox does fix the problem Rydian, why use an inferior browser that works like dog doo when the alternative p-owns It.

    Guys, if you don't have any advice on actually fixing the problem, don't post.

    Try this:
    http://addonsmx.maxt.../en_US/post/653

    It forces broken images to load after the entire page is done loading. Apparently this has helped quite a few people with the same issue, so it should work for you.

    @Rydian - Before I was testing it on the old ass FF4(yeah been awhile since I updated)and it worked fine,I do now have FF11 now just incase I can't fix my problem,oddly enough I did a quick test of uninstalling IE8(which reverts it back to IE6) and it seemed to be normal(atleast for the few mins I tested it)...
    @[member='Jugarina'],like most people i'm a creature of habit I guess...
    @[member='Suprgamr232'],I don't know if that would work on the 2.5 version...
