Thanks

I will have that problem with Internet Explorer, but not with Mozilla or Google Chrome.

I don’t know what the problem is, just how to avoid it.

Well, there are several ways to troubleshoot this. First, as hairy touched on (slightly disturbing mental picture), try to open the pictures using another browser (Firefox and Chrome are both great if you’re using IE). If that doesn’t do it, are you viewing the pictures from home? If not, there may be a conflict with the security of whereever else you’re trying to access the pics from. If you’re at home and their still is a problem, you’ll probably need to dig through the browser’s security and things like your firewall (or whatever security you use at home). It could even be an issue with the router.

Let us know what you’re doing to troubleshoot the issue and how your system is set up.

I’m using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit and I.E. 8. They work fine for me.

Can you “Expand” or “Zoom Pictures” as it says? Or are you saying that you can’t move a Smaller Picture from the Right Side into the Main Frame on the Left Side?

Doss is correct. We need more info on your Set Up and/or Exactly what it is, or is not doing.

Pleased to help if we can.

Rick

PS: Doss. Re “(Firefox and Chrome are both great if you’re using IE).” I thought all Three of those ARE Browsers and you could only use One of them at a time?

Rick, all three are browsers. You can use them at the same time, but you have to swap between them. I use them for different things though (I’m a software engineer). I standardize my web apps using IE since it is the most heavily used by my customers. But, some people don’t know how well Chrome and Firefox work compared to IE or why they should try them.

Chrome is my personal browser of choice, but it does suffer from credential issues on some sites, frequent Shockwave crashes, and sometimes general performance issues when I have multiple windows and tabs open (sometimes I have 5-12 windows open with 2-30 tabs each). It’s supposed to sandbox the sites as well, but I find it really doesn’t do that all the time. It does a better job isolating a crashed tab/window than the other two. Also, garbage collection seems to be a little slow at times after I close several tabs and windows (it doesn’t release the RAM very quickly).

Firefox is what I use when I’m developing so I can use any one of several plugins that help me troubleshoot my sites and code. The development side of Firefox is great. Also, b/c of the number of plugins, I can use them for things like grabbing files from FTP sites, downloading all content on a page, etc.

IE is what I use for session logins (many of the sites I visit have high security settings that only allow for certain software to connect). Also, things like my timecards and other systems will only let me enter data into them if I’m using IE. I’ve tried to use an IE-compatibility plugin before on Firefox and it only worked on a few sites or instances. So, I just use IE instead to make sure I have no issues.

Hey Doss:

Thanks for the Great Explanation! I couldn’t do all that at once if my Life depended on it …LOL…

Rick, not a problem. There are so many little things between all of the browsers that they all remain relevant. I find that IE is usually the most compatible (and forgiving) in the end.

The trick is knowing what usually breaks in each one of them so you can narrow down an issue and fix it across the board.

Rayn, any luck yet?

Wait, are you using Google Chrome or iGoogle? iGoogle is not the same thing (it’s not a browser). A Yahoo isn’t a browser (unless you’re using that old one that they used to have).

What are you using Firefox on? A PC? What are your security settings? Where are you at (home or work)? You’re going to have to give more information to get some useful help.

As Doss has stated ” You’re going to have to give more information to get some useful help.”

As I have asked ….. ”EXACTLY what is it that is going wrong?”

i.e. as per my previous question in Post #3 ” Can you “Expand” or “Zoom Pictures” as it says? Or are you saying that you can’t move a Smaller Picture from the Right Side into the Main Frame on the Left Side?”

Which of those Problems are you experiencing?

This …”Still having problems I am using iGoogle, tried Firefox and Yahoo and no luck” doesn’t explain the Actual Problem.

I cannot move the smaller picture from the right side into the main frame. I can zoom or enlarge the main picture

This would appear to be a Problem with “Whatever” type of a Computer you’re using. “Where” you’re using it and “Whatever” your settings are on that Computer.

Personally I can’t see why you are even having the Problem. The activity of “Moving” and “Zooming” the Pictures is a LumberJocks Site Programming Function.

No one else seems to have the Problem or they wpuld have been Posting here in Agreement with you or someone would have started their own Post on the same “Problem”. That’s NOT happening.

Best Of Luck resolving Your Problem. There’s nothing else that I can contribute to the “Solution”.
