IE 9 - red x icon instead of logo ( Unable to display image file in IE9)

Knowledge Article Number 000175558
Description Users are unable to  display images (Logo) on IE9
Resolution
To get pictures to show up in IE9, you have to change its settings.
 
You need to enable "mixed content". Mixed content describes a page where some of the content comes from a secure source and some comes from non-secure sources, like the images embedded in the message.  By default, Internet Explorer will not show you the non-secure items, so you don't get to see the images.
 
To change that, in Internet Explorer, go to Tools/Internet Options/Security and click the Custom Level button. Scroll down to Miscellanous, and under Display Mixed Content, choose Enable. 


 

Make sure Internet Explorer is set to display pictures

If the Show Pictures option in Internet Explorer is turned off, you won't see pictures on a webpage. Here's how to make sure it's turned on:

  1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Internet Explorer.

  2. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

  3. Click the Advanced tab.

  4. Scroll to the Multimedia section, and then select the Show Pictures check box.

  5. Click OK.




 

Make sure Internet Explorer's security settings are allowing programs required to display pictures

Internet Explorer security settings can disable some programs, such as Adobe Flash or QuickTime, that are used by websites to display pictures or media. Typically, when you need a program to display pictures, you'll also receive a message identifying the program that is required. (If pictures that don't need other programs aren't displaying, either, then the program might not be the problem.) To reset Internet Explorer to the default security settings and allow these programs to run, follow these steps:

  1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Internet Explorer.

  2. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

  3. Click the Security tab, and then click Default Level.

  4. Click OK.
