    Red X's

    Links from Msn's Homepage to the French Open Results and Misskellibad's signature on this site have red x's where something is being blocked. I thought that a '''bad" link was being blocked, but I thought I'd ask in case this is an unnecessary setting. Any thoughts? DRB

    Probably your firewall blocking the URL's of the images.

    Thanks Conan. Sounds like something I'm perfectly willing to live with until I find a "must have" situation, then I'll write an exception. DRB

    Right click "red x". Go to Properties. Copy the link address (URL), paste it into your browser address bar and hit ENTER.

    Kane,
    The proceedure worked fine. But when I got to Village Photos where Misskell's sig is stored, -"File Not Found". Thanks for the info. BTW, does this mean that all HTTP's are currently blocked by my Firewall? DRB

    Kane,
    I have read this level of overview many times. I guess the differences occur at the packet level where the receiving templates require differing packet arrangement, order, and information. Maybe for efficiency of/or load speed advantages. Anyway, I'm always interested in looking a little deeper. DRB
