Picture "Loading" problem

In most to all of the instructables, questions, and forum topics I have visited recently, the pictures featured have had the "Loading" bar across them the entire time I am visiting the page. The pictures are fully visible and loaded, but the bar persists.

Ok, I have fixed the problem, at least on my PC.
It was an add-on IE8 with winXP, probably should be the same on any OS.
Try go to IE8 tools/manage add-ons look at your least which ones are disabled and what's enabled, write it down so that set it back as it was if you nedd to, and start disabling what you think is not needed. It is a bit trial and error thing, I got mine from the first try.
Hope it works for you too.
Good luck
      In your description of the problem there is a symptom that you did not mention. 

     If you move off the initial image to a secondary image, the "loading" icon doesn't show up (you noted this). However if you move to a second secondary image and then come back to the first secondary image, it will have the loading issue. 

    Just thought I would mention it, in case it is a clue.

Sigh...I'm so sad :0(
Hello, I am having this problem also and it will not go away, I am using Vista and IE8 and being a not geek I am going to stay with Vista and windows, so how do I solve this problem?
Can you post a link to the instructable it's happening on, and a screenshot, so I can compare what you're seeing to what I'm seeing?
Well, it's still happing on every Instructable I go to. My husband even tried on his computer, and there was exactly the same problem. It's so irritating. I'm not leaving, and I'm always going to stay "pro" this is my very very favourite site. Please Please fix it.

hi, i am having this same problem, but theres more to it than was mentioned...
like LoneWolf posted below, the loading icon stays on the picture, and yes, it stays there for as long as you look at the first photo until you look at the second. Also, if you click on the first photo or any other you have already clicked on, it will only show the loading icon and it will not actually load the image.
As you might also want to know, this bug is also present when you are editing/making an instructable, so it is difficult when you have to refresh the page just to look back and make sure you got the captions right.

I use IE9 and Windows 7, and i hope that you guys can fix this soon!

I also have the big Loading icon issue. Is there any progress on a fix?
I recieved an email from the tech team and they are working on it so they said.

Same problem here.....Loading on every picture....And no I don't want to use Firefox. let me say this is an awesome site but this problem should be fixed asap, it leaves a very bad example to users who I would say 90% of use IE7 or IE8. I love to tell people about the site and have already heard from 3 people that they just started having the same LOADING Issue....Please fix!
