technical help?

instead of reading and writing to you, I've been trying to solve my browser problems with limited results

I've been using Mozilla for my graphics journal (fileg_) and Safari for this journal, also tied to my Eudora for answering mail

But a frightening number of the anime communities I belong to use cascading style sheets that Safari (famous for its ability with css) on the Mac sees as a jumble of -- well, crap.

In an attempt to find some happy halfway house, we decided to bite the bullet and move both sides to Firefox, which gives me the best selection of the things I like about the other two browsers.

Except now, when I go to someone's userpage, the first button (the one for Add As A Friend) is gone.

If we sign in on jim's laptop in his copy of Firefox (we're using 1.0.7) it's fine, but nothing seems to fix it on mine.

I opened my preferences and threw away all the sites I had blocked images from, just in case, but no change.

We selected the string of buttons ( I have to do; memories; search, nudge and gift) and looked at the code

all the other buttons have a tag after the button description that begins img src but the add friend button has a tag that says img style="display: none;"

Anyone have an idea about how to fix it? I'm not used to problems that stymie Jim.

And please, can you tell me why/how it happens? I am too old and cranky for the answer to so many things in my life to suddenly be "We can fix it, but we can't explain it." I need to know things.
