it doesn't matter if it is animated or not. Heck, even the buttons on the WYSIWYG editor do it. Just now, the Quote button at the top said 'Wrap [QUOTE] tags around selected text'. As soon as I moused over it, the button appeared and the text went away.
This is in Firefox 3.0.12
I've attached a screen shot of (oddly enough) my avatar missing in action...
...and Doug...that must be one tight budget if you can't do a FREE upgrade!
Beat me too it!
I haven't used IE in a long time, and would you know it... I think the quality of my life has improved! I tried Chrome and found it rather unstable for me? My current antique setup may have something to do with it.
Alright. I switched over and used IE for almost an hour, and didn't see the problem there. I had other issues with IE. Mostly the speed and everything looked kinda fuzzy. I'll just live with it or wait for Lash to pop in and fix it.
If it helps, I did notice that once 3.0.12 came out, your avatar was missing. This was last week or so.. Maybe ten days max.
Since I am running 3.0.12 and things are working ok in Mac OS 10.5.7 and Vista, I might suggest resizing the avatar to a slightly "off" or smaller number. Don't push the avatar limit size. I believe that it's a mutual translation issue with VBulletin or the board software.
Mozilla isn't always right on top of things, but they are definitely the best in the arena.
