HOTFIX: GIF images may not appear when you refresh a Web page in Internet Explorer 6
When you view a Web page by using Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, a GIF image that is located on the Web page appears as expected. However, if you press F5 to update the display, or if you click Refresh to update the display, the GIF image no longer appears. Instead, a red "X" appears as an image placeholder.
You experience this problem if the following conditions are all true:
• You visit the Web site over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection.
• You use a proxy server to connect to the Web site.
• The Web site uses NTLM authentication to access the Web page.
A hotfix is available to address this problem. Note that you must edit the registry after installing the Hotfix or it will not work.
