Need help with firefox 3.6.28: icons, jpg not showing

11 posts in this topic

I decided to buy the Asrock 775i65G motherboard. Installed Windows 98se,sp3x, Firefox 3.6.28 just as I did on my other machines. Everthing's fine except there's just blank spaces where the reload, home, ect. icons should be. Images don't load either, just says "thumbnail" where pic should be. Haven't had this problem in years-when using IE6. Don't remember what the solution was. BTW, icons and pics work in IE6. Searched around and couldn't find a solution. With Firefox 8 & 10, icons show up, but I like 3.6 for it's speed, bookmarks, ect. Does anybody have suggestions?

I don't know anything about that m/b, but you might give a try to Pale Moon 3.6.32: http://www.palemoon.org/archived.shtml

It's a fork of Firefox optimized for Windows (he also trims some stuff out), plus it's a bit newer than the last 3.x FF. See if it acts the same way.

If it does work ok, then you might also want to check out IEradicator (from the good folks at LitePC): http://www.litepc.com/ieradicator.html

Your system may smile! :)

P.S. I assume you're also using the latest KernelEx (4.5.2): http://kernelex.sourceforge.net/

If you're not using KernelEx, i doubt that FF 3.x would even start.

I tried Palmoon 3.6.32, same problem. I tried other firefox 3.x, ATI agp, now using unoffical nvidia 7800gs & drivers, with and without RP9 and autopatcher and updates. I'm gonna look closer at the bios,cpu settings. I'm using Pentium E5800

I also have this problem, but only on one machine ( KernelEX 4.5.2 ). It isn't very important for me. Usually I prefer Opera. Sometimes I run FF 9.01 with the HyperBK plugin (history and bookmarks alternative). It isn't slower than 3.x here. There are probably only a few affected systems out there. FF 4 and higher isn't affected. About the problem has been reported here in the KernelEX topic. AFAIK it isn't solved. The next days I'll check it again.

There was already a bugfix > KernelEx v4.5 RC 4: Fixed: missing background colors and images in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.9/3.6.10

A workaround for the current session. It works here only until reboot. I added a second theme (here vista aero), loaded it and then FF looks fine. Then I changed the theme back to default. :)

After three or four repetitions and reboots the problem seem to be gone. :whistle:

Haven't tried FF 9 before this. Seems to work better than 8 or 10. I'll take a look at the registry for jpg ect. and compare it to a working system.

I just had this same problem with an 855pm chipset laptop. I was using the machine inf's from this forum somewhere (ich23456). All I did was use Intels 5.00 chipset installer and the icons appeared. Didn't work on the i865 though.

Taking a shot in the dark, as I've never seen this bug in the official builds with KernelEx, but did have issues when building with the VC toolkit 2003. Found a solution after some Googling:

http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=692065

The solution, as described in that post, is to implement the build options:

ac_add_options --disable-parental-controls
ac_add_options --disable-vista-sdk-requirements

exclude all calls to nsDownloadScanner in nsDownloadManager.cpp

and either stripping the 256x256 image from firefox.ico or replacing firefox.ico with one from Firefox 2.x.

I'm thinking this may be related because, as schwups said:

A workaround for the current session. It works here only until reboot. I added a second theme (here vista aero), loaded it and then FF looks fine. Then I changed the theme back to default.

Just a guess.

After removing 1gb ram, I had a successful reinstall, it looks like icon and jpg problems were a result of installing drivers on system with more than 1gb of ram(with patch).
