Jpeg image files (typically files ending in ".jpg" or more rarely ".jpeg"),can be created to display in two different ways: "Standard" or "Progressive".When displayed, a standard jpeg will typically be drawn from the top down, oneline at a time. A progressive jpeg, on the other hand, will display over theentire image area, but in several passes - each one with more detail than thelast.
It's that last type of image you're probably seeing. And as you can probablysee, it's not something you control - whomever created the image elected toencode it this way.
The question of course is: why?
The surprising answer: bandwidth.
The question is if you're downloading an image over a low connection (oreven downloading a large image over a fairly fast connection), how soon willyou realize that the image isn't worth waiting for?
"It's all a matter of ... how much the image creatorwants you to see, and how quickly."Let's say the image is downloading and you've received 1/4 of the imagedata. For a standard jpeg, that means you'll see roughly the top quarter of theimage. For a progressive jpeg, that means you might see the entire image, butit'll be "out of focus".
For some images that standard format top quarter, in focus, will be enoughfor you to know what the rest of the image is going to be. For other imagesit's not. For some images that first progressive format "out of focus" image isenough. For other images it's not.
It's all a matter of how much you want to see, and how quickly. Or rather,how much the image creator wants you to see, and how quickly.
The good news is that a) the size of the same image encoded either standardand progressive isn't all that different, and b) the result when they bothcomplete downloading is the same.
And with internet download speeds increasing all the time, the actualdifference is rarely important - most images display before you even realizethat they're one or the other.

    there could be many causes for the blurry images...

    1- The picture posted is already of low quality....

    2- you video card driver is out dated.

    3- you brower is older one.

    For 1 you cannot do much...

    But try...

    Click the tools--->> Internet Option in your browser..

    Then go to Advanced tab...

    and scroll down to...Multimedia section...

    and check smart image dithering option...

    for 2 and 3

    a) check the manufaturer of your video card...

    go to their website....and download the latest version of

    the driver for you video card..


    Go to microsoft's update site...and find the update for you video card
    driver will eventually refer you to the manufacturer
    site...But the advantage is it will scan you system to check first...

    ... update you browser... again from the microsoft's site..

    or alternately use any other browser like Netscape, Opera, Mozilla or Firefox... which is having great reviews these day...

    hope it helps...

    some more suggestiions..

    do you have DirectX installed... if no.. then Again go to Microsoft's site...and download Directx latest version..

    it is helpfull to enhance the graphic capabilities of your video card...

    ..PS you can always choose appropriate resolution setting from

    Right clicking anywhere on the desktop...and then the properties option...and then choosing the settings tab...

    Normally I prefer a 800X600 with 24 Bit resolution desktop... you can choose your liking...

    Hope it helps...

My profile picture will not show what do i do help

See if this helps. I couldn't get Firefox or Chrome to bring up my FB images, same as pic above.
in case problem is not dissolve that means if you are using router you reboot or check the setting
once try connect LAN wire and try

So I opened up IE and logged onto FB and it worked perfect. ( IE is NOT my regular browser).All photos, headers the works all showing up. I then opened Chrome up and cleared my cache for the past week, incase some sort of bug was there. I reset my Firefox brower, by getting rid of add ons. To do this go to Firefox help, troubleshooting, click reset Firefox button on top right hand side. Then tried FB in Chrome and Firefox and they are both loading FB perfect too, now.

Don't know if it was an FB bug, or if loading FB in IE first solved the problem. Try running the IE browser and signing into FB, maybe that will fix the problem. Then log off and try logging into FB again with your other browser. If you still see a problem, then the other steps I did re Chrome and Firefox may help you. Good luck!

Please send me your website's code. Internet explorer is a specific browser for which coding must be done separately. The web developer must have done the same so those codes are not working in other browsers. If you can send me the code, I can look into the actual problems (code part).

You don't say which operating system you are using.

It sounds as if something has affected, changed or corrupted your Firefox Browser settings.

Uninstall firefox and all its components from add or remove programs > restart computer > use IE to log on and download and install the latest version of Firefox, watching out for any firewall permission boxes > test firefox and set it as the Default Browser, if you want to.

start > Control Panel > (Add or Remove) Programs > (uninstall a program) > highlight Firefox > Remove all its components > restart computer.

Remeber to regularly downlad and install upgrades, updates andsecurity patches for both browsers to protect from malware.

Download and install good Spyware and Browser protection software such as, for added protection:

Malwarebytes (

SuperAntispyware (

I hope this helps.

Uninstall any toolbars you have recently installed and see.

Mozilla Firefox trumps Internet Explorer

You should try making IE your standard browser, I think it's in extras or internet options menu. When you've done that, it should open all sites in IE. Or you can try downloading extra plug-ins for firefox that will display the site properly.

Hope this helps!

Firefox or IE I've been using IE for ever, lately I've been hearing a lot about Firefox, and thought I might try it, what are the main advantages of Firefox, over IE? What do you prefer Firefox or IE?...

The user interface on the two browser is very similar.

Firefox is considered 'more powerful' because is more customisable, and you can download many extensions, that are plugins with many functions.

Firefox suffer less from virus problem, as there are more viruses designed to attack IE, however majority of viruses do not make any difference between IE, Firefox, Opera etc.

Internet explorer is more unstable and crashes more easily.

Sometimes new plugins (extension) can make Firefox slower.

Sometimes new download updates can make IE slower.

The two browsers are both good, and both work fine on most situation. I personally use Firefox, as it gives me less troubles with Windows.

My suggestion is : download and install Firefox, if you do not like it, then switch back to IE.

You can use both browsers at the same time.
