    Hi, I have this site, and the images don't show up for my client when he goes to the homepage, but if he refreshes of goes to another page then back again, they show up. I get them right away on all my computers. I believe he is using google chrome, but may have switched to firefox (I use firefox). Any help would be appreciated, I'm still really new at all this and my little knowledge is dangerous!! Thanks... below is the code, and the site:
    www.carolinagatecontrol.com
    CODE:
    <div class="cont-box">
    <div class="border-left">
    <div class="border-right">
    <div class="inner">
    <div class="extra-box">
    <div class="playPauseExample slideShow">
    <ul class="slides">
    <li class="slide"><img src="images/slide1.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></li>
    <li class="slide"><img src="images/slide7.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></li>
    <li class="slide"><img src="images/slide2.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></li>
    <li class="slide"><img src="images/slide3.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></li>
    <li class="slide"><img src="images/slide4.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></li>
    <li class="slide"><img src="images/slide5.jpg" border="0" alt="" /></li>

    Yeah, doesn't work in Chrome, but does in IE9. What slider are you using?

    I am using jquery.slideShow (1.0.6)
    * by Marcel Eichner (www.marceleichner.de)
    * <love@ephigenia.de>
    *
    $.fn.slideShow = function(options) {

    // multiple elements
    if (this.length > 1) {
    this.each(function() { $(this).slideShow(options)});
    return this;
    }

    // private vars
    this.defaults = {
    start: 0, // start index, set to 'random' or 'rnd' to random start
    interval: 3, // interval, autoplay, set to false for no auto-play, in seconds
    repeat: true, // repeat at the end
    transition: {
    mode: 'fade',
    speed: 1000
    },
    slideSize: 'auto', // size for slides (used for mouseover and stuff)
    hoverNavigation:false, // enable mouse to change images
    slideClick: false, // insert callback method for slide clicks
    gotoSlide: false // slide change callback
    };
    this.options = $.extend({}, this.defaults, options);

    // internal vars
    this.numSlides = this.find('.slide').length;
    if (this.options.start == 'random' || this.options.start == 'rnd') {
    this.current = Math.floor(Math.random() * this.numSlides) + 1;
    } else {
    this.current = this.options.start;
    }
    if (this.current >= this.numSlides) {
    this.current = this.numSlides - 1;
    }
    this.last = false;
    this.elm = $(this);
    this.interval = false;
    this.mouse = {
    x: 0, // store mouse x relative position on element
    y: 0, // store mouse y relative position on element
    over: false // store mouse over boolena value
    };

    // init slideshow
    this.init = function() {
    ... can add the rest if needed...

    [COLOR=rgb(55, 65, 75)]Browsers generally load images onlyafter an HTTP request is sent for them, either passively via an <img> tagor actively through a method call. So if you have JavaScript that swaps an imageon mouseover, or changes an image automatically after a timeout, you may have to wait anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes while the image is retrieved from the server.[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgb(55, 65, 75)]Once the images have been called the first time, they are usually stored in the local cache so that subsequent calls to the image are satisfied immediately...but there's still a delay the very first time the image is needed.It s[/COLOR]ounds like this is what is happening here. Once the page is refreshed or returned to from another page, they are by now in the cache and so load and show swiftly.

    You may want to consider preloading the images. [COLOR=rgb(55, 65, 75)]Preloading is a technique where the image is downloaded to the cachebefore it's needed. That way when the image is actually needed it can beretrieved from the cache and displayed immediately.[/COLOR]
