Mac Safari :: Images Not Appearing - Getting That Tiny Blue Box With Question Mark?


I have an Intel Duo Core 2 iMac running 10.5.8 and Safari 4.0.5. I often find that when I open web pages, graphics and images are missing and in their place is a small blue box with a question mark in it. I often see this in craigslist postings.

In other threads, I've read people theorize about all different kinds of possible causes for this (from DNS problems to poor code), but haven't found an answer that will fix the problem.

Today I opened an email from Apple asking me to rate a recent workshop. I opened the email in my Yahoo mail in Safari. In the email, there was a small blue box with the question mark instead of an image.

Here's what's interesting and different than what I've read in other posts:

When I open the same email or webpage in Firefox, the pictures and graphics always appear. And, much more interestingly, once I open the pages in Firefox, if I go back and open them again in Safari, the images and graphics appear in Safari. This is always true.

What is causing this? It's really frigging annoying, and I see posts about it stretching years back. There must be some way to fix this!

Safari :: Blue Box With Question Mark Instead Of Pictures?
I was forcibly migrated from DSL to Fiber Optic internet services (uverse) & ever since I am consistently seeing a small blue box with a white question mark in it where a picture should be. It is happening on multiple sites & it does it randomly only when I'm using my home router. If I am using another internet provider, it doesn't happen & I've checked a few forums & all of their solutions don't work for me. I was advised not to delete & reinstall Safari but I'm afraid it is only occuring at home that something is wrong with the services/router/signal because nothing else has worked. If I take it to the apple store or anything of the like, it will work so it's not as if I can "show" someone unless they're at my home.

Pages 09 :: Unlock Blue Box - Around Paragraphs - Can't Drag Images?
There is a blue box around some of my paragraphs and not others. For the ones that have the blue box I cannot drag images into the middle. I have tried help, talked to my co-workers, even cycled thru the inspector comparing text with boxes as text without. What's going on? Can I turn them off?

Mac Safari :: Downloading .pdf Files Gets A Blue Question Mark?
My office computer has Safari 4.0.3. Until a couple of weeks ago I had no problems downloading .pdf files, but now when I try to do so I get a screen that is blank except for the upper left-hand corner that has a little blue box with a question mark inside. Clicking on the question mark has no effect.

Does anyone know what I should be doing to fix the problem? I work in a law office and often need to download government forms.

Software :: No Images Appearing In Safari On 10.4.11
Recently, Safari 3.2.3 on 10.4.11 has stopped loading images. No placeholder icons appear, just blank spaces. Other browsers, such as Firefox, are not affected, nor are other user accounts. I tried repairing permissions, but that didn't help. Has anybody ever seen this behavior? Is this something that a preferences reset should be able to resolve, or is something more drastic necessary?

OS X :: Dot Mark And Tiny Horizontal Line On Screen
I've just noticed two small marks in the lower right-hand corner of my iMac's screen: a tiny horizontal line to the right of a dot. I can see them when I restart the computer, but not when the wallpaper is on the screen. Clear Screen won't remove them, but they don't seem to be scratches either, partly because I can't feel them. Do you think they're dust specks or something like them tat somehow got behind the screen? I hope there's a safe way to remove them because I hate to see them.

IWeb 09 :: HTML Snippet - Creates Tiny Text Information Box
I'm looking for an HTML snippet that creates a tiny text information box like "Welcome, etc" that pops up when a page loads. In the snippet, you just enter your text to be displayed. I had one a few weeks ago but didn't save it, darn. I think it was java based. Anyone out there have one?

OS X Tiger :: Question Mark Suddenly Appearing At Boot
PowerBook on 10.4.11 Today at boot I saw briefly and for the first time a file divider with a question mark on it. That was followed by the Apple and flying pizza for a long time before getting the Mac OSX box which took a long time for the progress bar to start and finish. After that all was fine. Verified disk - OK. Repaired permissions. SMART is verified. All seemed well in further use. Next boot I noticed the file plus question mark which was replaced by the Mac faces before moving on quickly to the Mac OS box which seemed to half complete the progress bar before before starting up quickly. Again everything seems fine, but this sudden appearance of the question mark/faces makes me wonder if anything is likely to be amiss. I recently installed the last security update. I also used the PB to install a retail Tiger DVD onto an external HD to use on a Quicksilver, but I can't see those as significant actions.

Mac Safari :: Upload File Box Off Screen - How To Make That Box Smaller So That It Fits On The Screen
I've recently had trouble with my macbook while uploading files. I click on the "upload file" button and the box that pops up that lets me choose a file is so large that the bottom is off the screen. This means that I can't click on "upload" or "cancel". The only way I know how to proceed is to click on a file and push the enter key. Does anyone know how to make that box smaller so that it fits completely on the screen?

Mac Safari :: Printing - Dialog Box Comes Up With 95% In Scale Box When Use "Standard" Preset
Whenever I print from Safari, the print dialog box comes up with 95% in the scale box when I use the "Standard" preset. I can change it manually to 100% each time, but I can't figure out how to make it default to 100% since Safari won't let me change the "Standard" print preset. What do I need to do?

Intel Mac :: Won't Start - Get Apple Logo With Spinning Wheel, Question Mark That Disappears And Then Blank Blue Screen?
My daughter's old I Mac won't start. It is not backed up.  We want to get some things off of it if we can. When we turn it on, we get the Apple logo with spinning wheel for awhile, then a question mark briefly and then a sky blue blank screen.  Is there any hope of getting this to work?  This computer is out of warranty.  Does it seem that if we reinstall the Operating System we might find old data?

MacBook Pro :: Not Booting Up - Blue Then Black Screen Appearing
I have a MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 2.5GHz/250GB HDD/2GB RAM that won't turn on, unless I leave the power button pressed, in which case, as you all know, the computer turns off again. It started about 3 days ago. Set the computer to sleep, shut it closed, took it to another room and opened it. The MBP gave me the blue screen, then black and then... nothing.At first I thought it was the HDD, but now I'm having second thoughts. I now think it's the cpu fan.

Aperture :: Mark Several Images At Once With One Or More Stars?
using aperture 3 and am mostly happy with it (except a nasty import bug). however, a question about marking images with * to ***** stars:

if I select several images at once within the aperture browser, is there a way to mark those images with a * star rating alltogether?

maybe I am to dumb, but if I select a couple of images, this is not possible. I have to move to every image with the cursor key, mark it with * star and then to the next.

MacBook Air :: Getting The Blue Folder - Question Mark?
So I've been having this strange issue with my MacBook Air. Whenever I perform a restart on the system, on boot up it displays the Blue Folder with a Question Mark. From what I understand, this indicates that it couldn't find any system files, and hence can't boot up. So I figured it was just a hard drive issue. However, when I turned it off via the power button (while at the Question Mark screen), then turn it back on, it boot's into OS X perfectly. I ran disc utility, and it said that there's nothing wrong with the hard drive. However, when I try to repair permissions, after about 15 minutes nothing occurred.

Could anybody tell me why do I keep on getting the Question Mark only when I restart, despite the fact that my Hard Drive seems to be fine? In addition, if it is a permissions issue, is there a way to repair it, as using Disk Utility doesn't seem to be doing anything?

OS X Leopard :: Blue Folder Icon With Question Mark At Startup
I can't even check my mac specs. so at this point I'm not sure if it's a MAC OS X (10.5.7) I just selected that. I bought it three years ago and it's white and not the pro one, if that helps. It froze while browsing firefox, so I shut it down. When I restarted it again, there's no apple logo or spinning wheel like others experienced, it just showed a light blue screen with a folder icon with a question mark on the center. I've restarted it about 5 times and still the same!

Mac Safari :: Click-n-drag Images From Safari Window To Desktop Options?
I click on and drag an image from a web page, a little transparent thumbnail and the Green Plus symbol indicating a copy appears. While still holding down the left mouse button I drag it to my desktop. But when I release the left mouse button, the file is not created on the desktop, and the transparent thumbnail remains attached to the pointer. At this point the pointer can still be moved but I cannot click on most other windows or object, as if the mouse is disabled. All I can do is Command-Option-Escape for the Force Quit window and force Safari to quit. This is on my Black Macbook, and I am always using a Logitech V220 Cordless mini-mouse. In the Trackpad Preference pane, all check boxes are checked except the Clicking, Dragging, and Drag Lock options. The problem has not yet appeared with just using the track pad, but I do not use it much. I have noticed that removing the Logitech wireless USB insert after force quitting Safari, and restarting Safari then attempting to click-n-drag an image again results in the same problem, unless I reboot the Macbook.
