Images Not Displaying in IE, Displaying in Firefox

by Hiroshi on April 21, 2009


Ever experienced a problem when regular image HTML code is displaying images in firefox but not displaying in internet explorer? If you are facing the same problem then consider taking care of following points:

  • Do not name images as ‘banner’. This can cause problems with some antivirus software or browser add-on.
  • validate the html document and css file. You can lose a lot of time trying to fix something when there are errors in your code.
    W3C Validator – HTML
    W3C Validator – CSS
  • Check for valid code – make sure all tags are closed.
    You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to “self-close” an element, that is, ending it with “/>” instead of “>” in case of XHTML
  • Check that ‘show pictures’ option is enabled in IE.
    Go to tools > Internet Options > Multimedia > Show Pictures
