nav bar contains social site buttons that are supposed to show icons but only show text

Posted

I have been using firefox as my main development page for a new website. I am using WordPress 3.4.2 and custom theme called Thesis 1.8.5.

The main nav bar contains 8 buttons; 1 to my blog which is the home page and the other 7 to static pages. These buttons all justify to the left. The right end of the bar contains buttons to Twitter, Google+, Facebook, and Feedburner. The are (or were) linked to images; these buttons justify to the right.

Here is the code that makes this work:

They worked fine until yesterday when I made some design adjustments to the space between the left button. Now rather than display icons, the underlying text shows on the right justified buttons.

Now here is what is interesting. I also have Safari and Chrome on my system. The icons show up fine in both of the them.

I can't find any explanation or fixes for this problem.

I will provide the site URL but it is in Maintenance mode so won't show the problem.

Thanks for your help.

We can't access that website to check this:

NicheBuilders is currently undergoing scheduled maintenance. Please try back in 25 days, 14 hours, and 9 minutes (on December 3, 2012 at 5:17 pm).

If images are missing then check that you aren't blocking images from some domains.

  • Check the permissions for the domain in the current tab in "Tools > Page Info > Permissions"
  • Check that images are enabled: Tools > Options > Content: [X] Load images automatically
  • Check the exceptions in "Tools > Options > Content: Load Images > Exceptions"
  • Check the "Tools > Page Info > Media" tab for blocked images (scroll through all the images with the cursor Down key).

If an image in the list is grayed and there is a check-mark in the box "Block Images from..." then remove that mark to unblock the images from that domain.

Make sure that you do not block third-party images, the permissions.default.image pref should be 1.

There are also extensions (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) and security software (firewall, anti-virus) that can block images.
