CB images problem (in Off-topic)

Demigod August 8 2010 12:49 PM EDT

I've got an issue that's stumping me. Normally, when a picture is posted in a thread, the pic will load and push down the next post to make room for the pic to be fully visible.

That doesn't always happen on my laptop. What ends up happening is that the top part of a pic is visible, but the bottom pat is covered up by a post. Normally it fails to move down the next post the first time it loads, but if I reload the page it gets the formatting correct.

This only happens on my laptop, but I'm not sure what setting controls it. Any ideas?

It's my business laptop running IE8, and I don't wish to install a better browser on it. The IE multimedia settings are all on default.

that usually happens from looking at porn sites too often! ; )

Then my work laptop should be fine.

But my other one should have exploded...

It does it to me in chrome. If I move the mouse around a lot, or scroll back and forth, it jogs it into displaying right.

Bounce this issue to Fex or Lamuness. Also, link to a thread displaying the problem. Maybe there's some unclosed tags somewhere.

Once the image is cached, the problem goes away -- so it's not likely a tag issue so much as a browser issue. I've never had it happen in FF, but it's a constant annoyance in IE. Reloading the pages fixes it.
