So for some reason (and I think it seems to be exclusively on Yahoo.com) none of the images seem to load.  They're all errored and blank.  I'm using Version 45.0.2454.85 m of Google Chrome, and it's all up to date.  Here's an image of what I mean.....Ag8zrJo.jpg

Thanks for your reply, Dashing star.  I tried everything and eventually got it to work.  Apparently my switch from Adblock to Adblock Plus somehow messed up all the images on pretty much only Yahoo.com

I disabled it and re-enabled it, and upon which the page now loads fine.  Thanks again for your help, I really should've known though.  Now I feel dumb lol >.<

 

EDIT:  Scratch that, it went right back to no images, even with Adblock Plus disabled.  I even uninstalled Adblock Plus, and it's still messed up.  Now I'm confused as to how i worked fine for a few minutes then back no pictures.....

Clean out your temporary internet files and temp files.

Download TFC by OldTimer http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/TFC.exe to your desktop.

Double-click TFC.exe to run it.

Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator

TFC will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.

* Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process.
* Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two.
* Please let TFC run uninterrupted until it is finished.

Once TFC is finished it should restart your computer. If it does not, please manually restart the computer yourself to ensure a complete cleaning.

Just finished doing all that, and the page still is messed up with no images.  I'm not sure if this information is helpful, but (I don't know if you're familiar with using Yahoo's page) they normally have approx. 50 articles on a horizontal scrolling bar that shows 5 at a time.  The first 5 are missing their images, but if I let it scroll to the right or click it myself, the other 45 articles all have their pics.

It looked the exact same in Firefox, and actually I just closed Chrome and opened it back up, checking on Yahoo again and now it seems to be fixed?  It was fixed before for a few minutes after disabling Adblock Plus so I'm semi-skeptical at the moment.

Well, it's a good thing we were skeptical about this.  It was all fine yesterday but once I got home today and booted up my PC, the pictures are once again gone on Yahoo.  What the [bleep] is going on.  :(

But I already did all those things in post no.2

And now, making even less sense, as I check Yahoo before bed all the images have loaded fine.  What the [bleep] is going on........

Hello,

Perhaps its an internet connection issue. Turn the router off / on next time it occurs. You did indicate that the problem occurs in Two browsers so that sort of alleviates a browser issue, that leaves possible Internet issue or firewall, the fact that the problem is intermittent points more to some connection possible issue, I'm making educated guesses here.

Also

Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and click on Begin Test

When the Test finishes click on Share This Result and then select Forum then Copy then move to a reply and Ctrl + v
