If you look at it in firefox and IE it's different, or at least it is for me. The correct picture {the cub's face} shows up in IE but some pretentious little pic with a saying, that I don't even own shows up in FF. Why would this be?

I use FF as my primary browser and have never had this problem before. The image broke a few minutes before the wrong one started showing up. This is my icon on a forum I have over 20,000 posts on so yeah it's slightly important. At worst I can just re-upload it somewhere else but I'm afraid of this happening again.

The only way this is going to be possible is if the server is set up to show one picture for one web browser and another for another browser. Such Photobucket has no such criteria and it would be commercial suicide to treat Internet Explorer users in this fashion, it's more likely an issue on your computer or an infection.

I cleared out my cache in FF and it's normal again but that is honestly one of the strangest things that's ever happened to me.

How can the same URL display two different images depending on the browser?

Has anyone ever heard of this happening before?

Happens all the time where IE is concerned. :) Actually looked the same in all my browsers.
