    Hi:

    I'm running Firefox V3.6.12 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on my laptop. All has been working well until today when I booted it up and attempted to go on the internet, Firefox would not display my homepage images.
    If I click in any of the frames, it will go to that website however. I went to load my FTP and see if my account was still on the IP server and it returns an error saying "Password Needed".

    I called my IP and they confirmed the Username and Password were fine however, I still cannot access my homepage account so, something is definitely amiss. What is really weird is that I'm running firefox on my desktop with win7 32 bit and it displays the homepage just fine. Same thing for my other desktop running XP.

    I have looked into "Page Info" on Firefox on the laptop and under "Permissions" although the radio buttons seem to be checked properly, they are all ghosted as is the listing of the images. Really weird.

    Does anyone out there have a clue as to what my next move should be, because the IP's do not give support on home page problems and only refer the user off to their FAQ sheets on their website. Of course my specific problem is not included on their FAQ's.

    By the way, I also tried it using IE and the same thing happens there too.

    HELP.....

    On your home page, are the images that won't display on the same server (same host name in the URL) or on another server? If they are on another server, and both browsers refuse to display them, it could be that you have some security software that is blocking "third party images" or you may have an obsolete IP address for that server's host name in your hosts file. (I assume Windows 7 still uses a hosts file...)

    Hi:

    As far as I'm aware, all the images are on the same server and I'm quite sure it still uses hosts. Have checked Online Armor and can't see that it's causing any problem. Nor, it seems, is Security Essentials. I've taken them both off line and tried to bring the site up with my FTP but still get the same error "Username or Password incorrect". When I press OK on the box and the system switches over to the FTP, on one of the lines from "attempting Login", it reads "Username Okay, Need Password." I've used the same password for sometime now and can't understand why it suddenly isn't working.

    Must be a way around this so that I don't have to set up the whole account thing with the IP again. Any more suggestions would sure be given a try. Thanks for your first attempt.
