    Hi all,

    I'm currently using Tiger 10.4.11, and just have a stupid question --

    Sometimes when I load a webpage, some of the pics are just little boxes with question marks on them (image placeholders). In Windows I could just right click and reload the image. How do I do that in Safari? I don't know how to do this (it's only OPEN IN NEW ___, DOWNLOAD, or COPY ADDRESS) in the options, so I normally just refresh the entire page...which can be quite a hassle.

    I know I can reload stuff through the activity window, but when you have 15 tabs in 3 windows it's a chore going through every single one in the activity window.

    I use a 2-button mouse btw. Thanks in advance!

    I usually have that issue too. Reloading the page is the only way to show those pictures or items on the webpage.

    It usually happens when you have a slow Internet connection.

    Thanks guys... actually even with a fast internet connection here in the office I still get those, especially when loading image-intensive blogs :S

    @patrickgaerlan - sorry for the doublepost, wasn't sure whether that was a newbie question or an iapp question ;)

    Next time, just post it once and the mods will move it to the appropriate forum if needed :)

    With regards to your problem, download Firefox and try surfing with that. That way, we'll know if it's really a Safari-specific problem.

    In Safari, sometimes they have the show image command in your right click menu. The availability of the command really differs from website to website.

    based on my experience, if it does not show in safari no matter how many times you re load it, it shows up in firefox...

    it could be a plug-in problem. Sometimes, it is website related specially if its flash. Some websites use a flash plug-in that is not compatible with Safari. If this is the source of the problem, there's nothing you can do about it.
