I keep getting the little blue box with the question mark

I have 10.6.7 system software and my safari is 5.0.4
I have called apple twice with this problem already but nothing has helped except for short times.
I have reset safari about one dozen times and when I do I reset the top 7 items and I've emptied the cache in addition just in case. I've also taken my safari preference plist out of my library and trashed it.
And I've run disk utilities many times and restarted my computer. Each thing I do will solve the problem for a short time, even up to a day or more (or less) but then it comes back. For instance on Facebook maybe 1/8th of the thumbnail images have the little blue boxes with the question marks but most don't. I can't figure it out. Sometimes even the iPAD safari gets them too but my firefox doesn't show them and neither does Safari on my eMac.
Yesterday the question marks even showed up in ONE mailing on all 3 computers with the question marks in the blue boxes (meaning my iMac, my eMac and my iPad) but then it just all resolved after a few hours. This does sound like possibly a server problem except today it's happening (in Safari again) only on this iMac in Safari (not firefox) and not on the other two devices.
One more thing, since they changed my radio on the roof for my wireless internet, the 5.8 phone cuts out the internet when I use it. The problem has gotten worse since they changed the radio to the same frequency as the phone, it's a much faster service than the 2.4 radio. I don't know if this is related or not.
Thank you,

<Contact your ISP.
Is it possible, Carolyn, that this would mainly and almost always be only affecting the iMac and Safari in the iMac if it were a server issue? Right now Safari has more blue boxes with question marks than ever and the eMac and iPad have none. Firefox on the iMac has none also.
I should try a direct connection and by pass the router and see if that makes a difference.
I will contact them tomorrow but I want to get clear in my head first all the facts and possibilities.

  • Images appearing as little blue box with a question mark

    Hi, I have Safari version 3.1.1 and in the last two weeks, I've been missing data and having in it's place a small little blue box with a question mark show up in Safari and in some of my mail downloads too.
    Can anyone assist
    p.s. I have started a new topic because the other string relating to this topic is showing as solved with cause being devleopers.

    I have exactly the same problem with safari and mail but firefox works fine. If i go to a website that requires flash in safari it will say i need to install flash 8 to view the stuff even though i have flash 9 installed. I thought it might have been a problem with flash and thought about uninstalling and reinstalling but because firefox works fine it would seem to be a safari problem. This only started happening with the latest quicktime update to, and i've tried downgrading back to an older version but my pro-apps require the latest version to run.
    I did the same updates on my macbook but didn't encounter the same problems,although i lost audio playback on avi's in quicktime which i have since fixed with perian.

  • Why is my mac missing certain fonts and not displaying some pictures, is just a little blue box with a question mark in it?

    When I open documents it always comes up with warnings that I am missing fonts and some cannot be replaced.
    Also now I am noticing that some pictures are now missing and are replaced by a small blue box with a question mark in the middle. Can anyone
    tell me what is going on and how I can fix this?
    Confused and frustrated,

    Do you get a dialog box if you control click the missing image.

  • I keep getting an intermittent error on web pages where a blue box with a question mark appears instead of pictures.  For example Facebook and Zappos would load normally on one visit, but if I visit other websites and return I get the blue box.

    I keep getting an intermittent error on web pages where a blue box with a question mark appears instead of pictures.  For example Facebook and Zappos would load normally on one visit, but if I visit other websites and return I get the blue box instead of pictures. If I restart the problem will go away temporarly. However, normally returnes in time.

    From the Safari Menu Bar click Safari/Preferences then select the Appearance tab. Tick the box next to: Display images when the page opens.
    If that box is already ticked, from the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Empty Cache. When you are done with that...
    From the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari / Reset Safari. Select the top 5 buttons and click Reset. Relaunch Safari. If you still have problems loading images, go here for trouble shooting 3rd party plugins or input managers which might be causing the problem. Safari: Add-ons may cause Safari to unexpectedly quit or have performance issues
    Web pages now include a small icon or 'favicon' which is visible in the address bar and next to bookmarks. These icons take up disk space and slow Safari down. It is possible to erase the icons from your computer and start fresh. *To delete Safari's icon cache using the Finder, open your user folder, navigate to ~/Library/Safari/ and move this file "webpageIcons.db to the Trash.*
    Make sure Safari is not running in Rosetta. Right or control click the Safari icon in your Applications folder then click Get Info. In the Get Info window click the black disclosure triangle so it faces down. Where you see Open using Rosetta... make sure that is NOT selected.
    If you still have problems, go to the Safari Menu Bar, click Safari/Preferences. Make note of all the preferences under each tab. Quit Safari. Now go to ~/Library/Preferences and move this file com.apple.safari.plist to the Desktop. Relaunch Safari. If it's a successful launch, then that .plist file needs to be moved to the Trash.

  • What is the little blue box on the custom layout background . Ll the choices have this and show up in the photo

    i used the custom feature for 1 photo. All the choices have a little blue box on it that shows up in the photo. What is that?

    That is not a standard feature of Firefox.
    '''Reset''' removes all extensions and themes, along with other specific things, as explained in this support article.
    You need to reinstall which extension added that '''F''' to Firefox.

    I'm not able to view pictures in gmail. Where the picture should be is a outline and a small blue square in the middle with a question mark. How do I fix that so I can see my pictures?

  • Blue Box with White Question Mark

    All of a sudden, I started receiving the Blue Box with a White Question Mark in my Safari Internet. I test the site with two other browsers and the behavior was the same. I have not plug-ins recently installed and did clean my cache. Any suggestions? Running Mavericks. I ran an Adobe Flash update yesterday, but the behavior is affected today. I reset Safar after runnign Disk Utility<Repair Disk Permissions.

    Where precisely do you see the "?"

  • Can I make the little white box with the cross in it disappear?

    Layout mode. There is a tiny little square with cross in it, at bottom of text box. Cool. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not.
    Is there a way to make that little box disappear? So I can view the page as it will print out? I'm making graphic images with LOTS of those little text boxes ... it's hard to judge the final layout with all those little squares with crosses in them.

    The + is shorthand for "There is extra material contained in this text box that you can't see." To make the cross go away you need to increase the size of the box. Just to make things a bit more confusing, sometimes the "extra" material is the default text that is replaced by text you type into the box. Thus while you "know" that there is no text in the box not currently showing if you take a look you'll find placeholder text put there by Pages.

  • Little blue box with "?" inside

    when I open my mail messages, in my iPhone, that usually have such items as the senders logo or a photo of an item in their newsletter, instead of seeing those items all I see is a little blue square with a question mark inside of it. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I might go about correcting it.

  • Suddenly I see the usual blue box with question mark inside mail messages instead of pix

    Suddenly I see the usual blue box with question mark inside mail messages instead of pix.
    That did not happen before.
    It happened only on certain pages with Safari, like the google news feed which did not display pix.
    However, this new mail problem is really disturbing.
    I checked Little Snitch and port 80 is open.
    I checked java pref.
    I am at a loss.

    Suddenly I see the usual blue box with question mark inside mail messages instead of pix.
    That indicates that your Mail preferences are setup to not display remote images in email messages. You should check Mail->Preferences->Viewing and make surre the box to 'Display remote images in HTML messages' is checked.
    I checked java pref.
    Java has nothing to do with Mail, or displaying images in it or any browser.

    I own a MacBook Pro (MAC OS X 10.6.8) that I purchased in 2011. I have never had a single problem before, but here very recently youtube, my school (FSU) website, and a few other random websites will not load images. At all.
