Displays very large images

Post by Sundog »

I'm trying to view this website, https://www.rocksolidassistants.com/.

When I try, I get huge icons that look like this screenshot:

Is this problem due to some settings on my computer, or in my browser?

I get the same results with Edge.

When I load the page, I briefly see a huge Instagram icon like in your screenshot, but then the page becomes normal:

Do you run a script blocker?

How would I check for that? When I look via the hamburger menu I don't notice anything untoward.

Click on the Extensions button next to the hamburger menu.

Select Extensions. Do you have any extensions listed under Enabled?

I had only 3. I disabled them all temporarily but still get the same result. I will close FF and reopen and report back.

I'm afraid I have no idea what would cause that - both sites look OK to me (Firefox 117.0.1 64-bit on Windows 11 22H2 Home).
Can you try another browser such as Edge or Chrome?

Perhaps there is a problem with your internet connection. I'd try again tomorrow.

I'm using FF 117.0.1 on Win 10 Pro (my desktop PC) and Win 11 Pro (my laptop). On both machines FF uses uBlock Origin to block ads. Both sites open as expected. I don't even see an Instagram logo of any size while the page loads.

Looking again at your screen shot, it's as if the style sheet hasn't been read properly. I've seen that on a webpage on occasion and have fixed it by forcing FF to reload the page by holding down the Shift key while clicking on the reload arrow at the end of the address bar.

Tried that, still get the huge icon image.
=================
My CSS HTML Validator Pro 2023 software finds many errors, including:
  • A duplicate attribute was found that may cause inconsistent presentations or interpretations of the page [A, 4.1.1; F70, G134, H74, H94]. Visit https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20-TECHS/H94 for more information. Details: The "alt" attribute is used 2 times in this <img> tag.
  • And many more like the one directly above.
==================
Perhaps this thread should be moved to Website Development or some other place, as, for me, it's not Firefox-specific?
========================
Can anyone suggest a board that might offer a clue as to what's going on here? These sites open fine on my laptop, tablet, and cellphone. So this problem is isolated to my desktop, which is driving three monitors. The HUGE problem occurs on each of the three monitors and for all browsers tried.

On Monday, I will try my desktop tech support to see if they can figure anything out. The error messages referenced above are from examination of one of the two sites that have the HUGE problem.

I think I figured it out. You are confusing the Internet gods.

1) Sundog is using a cat for an avatar.
2) Your location.
