    Usually, the image has been removed ... or the server cannot be reached

    I checked the one above and all 3 images are coded with
    webkit-fake-url

    Sounds ominous, bu it seems to indicate that the person who uploaded the image did so incorrectly (copy & paste perhaps)

    There's not much you can do about it - other valid images are showing - the fault isn't on your side.

    Thank you, exactly what I wanted to know. One question, how did you locate the url from a snapshot image I posted?

    If you hover over an object, the URL is shown in the status bar (if view status bar is on)
    or
    If you right click the object, select copy address, paste it into a text editor
    ** never paste it into the address bar of your browser- it might be dangeous
    ... you just want to look at the addres, not go to the address
    or
    you can inspect the page and locate the object
    or
    you can view source and locate the object

    techie stuff

    edit: Opps - I searched the net for Dreamer Marshmellows, the cartoon character I relate to
    Which cartoon character do you relate to? - Blurtit
    scrolled down to teh post Dreamer Marshmellows, the cartoon character I relate to

    Then I did the stuff above on the actual page

    Ah.. like inspect element ect. I understand. thanks.

    huh was just wondering what would make pasting the address into a browser dangerous, possibly, though. ?
