My website is accessible via Internet Explorer but not Firefox? It is a simple jpeg image being used as a home page.

No matter whether I am using FireFox on MAC or Windows my new posted home page is not showing up when I access the domain. The home page in question is only a jpeg image labeled index.html in the prime directory. The jpeg or "home page" is accessible and is coming up correctly in IE. I am checking it on a desktop MAC and a Windows 7 laptop. Again the home page is only one file.

hello, to me the site appears to be down no matter what browser i use (maybe it is still present in your IE's cache & that's why it's showing). please contact the support of your website's hoster to find out what's going on...

I'm hosting it at godaddy and they couldn't figure it out since it was working with IE and not Firefox or Safari from their side either. They threw me to FireFox.

You cannot have an image appear as your homepage simply by renaming the image "index.html." You have to use code in an actual HTML document to pull the image in.

That makes sense. Im a graphics guy....starting to learn html and hosting protocol. I didn't know if I could get away with just posting an image file. What is a simple text editor I can key in this code and use to save an index.html file?

Notapad++ is a good editor :-)

If you're on a mac, open textedit, then go to window>>make plain text.

If you're on a PC, notepad should do fine.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we need a moment here, it worked. I have been designing sites for ten years. I always gave the .psd files to someone else to code. This is the first time I coded something (copied and pasted) and got the damn thing to work. I have been fooling with this for half a day.

Thank you very much. You have just started my coding career.

Have a nice day.
