    Hi,

    I only get text on my screen when I go to talkbass.com with my Mac. I'v tried two different browsers and get the same thing. Works fine on my Windows PC...any ideas?

    Hi Paul,
    Its better but still missing stuff. My post above that I replied to you is from the Mac. I couldn't see my avatar or a window to post into or any text tools like I can on the PC.

    This first page looks fine. If I click around still no images EXCEPT for ad images. I've attached a screen shot of what the "post reply" screen looks like

    Thanks, I did try that again just now and it doesn't help. I am posting from Chrome on Win7 now but Chrome on the Mac loads as text with a few images. The forum links do work but....any update on supporting Mac's?

    It's a matter of you not being able to download the .css and .js files from our content delivery network. Do you see my avatar if you click this link? :

    Can you tell me about your network? Are your mac and windows machines on the same network? Are you at work or at home?

    Thanks for getting back to me Paul. Yes I did see it and for whatever reason its working on the Mac right now. Actually the Mac and the PC are one machine, the PC is a virtual machine on the Mac using VMWare Fusion.

    didnt answer your question though, it didnt matter if i was at home or work, either location I couldn't get images on the Mac. The same computer running the VM with Win7 worked fine

    That's so weird. It must be a software issue. If you don't mind more questions... Do you have any firewall or virus protection or other thing installed in your mac os? How about in your browser? Is it a stock browser or customized with plugins?

    Anyway, everything's fine now? How about javascript things like the forum dropdown menu?

    Thanks!

    Hi Paul,
    Now we are back to no images. I've turned the FW off, CLAMAV off and also allowed 3rd party cookies, still no images. I am replying from the PC side and its fine. Browser is pretty standard except for Xfininty Go Stream Live and Google Chrome Cast

    So now, when you load https://static.talkbass.com/data/avatars/s/0/1.jpg on the mac side, you don't see anything? If true, I wonder if there's some way we can troubleshoot... some sort of log somewhere? I'm really at a loss :crying:

    And guess what? as soon as I clicked the static link, the forum looks normal now , with all images and pages look like the PC side. I'm posting from the Mac side now...

    You've stumped me. something in your Mac setup is refusing to load content from static.talkbass.com. And why your browser would be coaxed into behaving after downloading one image is beyond me.

    How often do you have to download one image to get it to work? Every page load? Or once per session?

    Just once per session. As soon as I click on the image and it opens a new browser tab with the image I can go back to the other browser tab and click on something else and all is fine.
