When you use Internet Explorer 6 Service Pack 1 (SP1) to
view a Web page that contains image files, you may experience the following
- Some of the images do not appear on the Web
- Internet Explorer may no longer display images until you
restart the program.
Explorer cannot recognize the end of the header area of an image file if the
end of the header area is at the end of the buffer when the image is loading. Therefore, Internet Explorer cannot display the image
because it cannot recognize when the image has been completely downloaded.Note
Internet Explorer always uses its internal buffer for loading
data. The buffer size depends on the computer environment. Therefore, the buffer size dynamically
changes. Users cannot fix the buffer size.
