The page loads fine for me as well. What OS and browser are you using, including version numbers?

I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and my browser is chromium. I don't the version number of my browser but I am sure it is the latest version because it gets updated regularly.

Have you tried loading the page with Firefox?

I have all same configurations except for the browser (i.e., Mozilla Firefox) and works fine here. I have also tested the same thread with Google Chrome and that works fine too. Try clearing your browser's cache.

Thanks. It works fine with mozilla. Though I always prefer chromium.

I cleared the cache but till didn't work.

Anyway, it seems only that particular page is misbehaving. So for this one time I'll use mozilla.

Chromium versus Chrome: it seems to me that this is an example of the purity of one principle (Chromium and FOSS) superceding practicality (Chrome and compatibility). I can't say that I would ever recommend Chromium as a browser right now. It just doesn't keep up with things. Chrome and Firefox are the best, hands down. Moreover, web page designers and programmers can't ensure that their web pages render correctly in every single browser known to man (just look at Lynx!). Life is too short.

So I take this as one instance where the argument ad populum, namely that "everyone is using Chrome and Firefox", normally a fallacy, is actually valid, because the very fact that most people are using Chrome and Firefox influences web page designers to make sure their web pages render correctly in those browsers!

I am unable to view that image without login information. Can you just upload the image as an attachment? :D
Perhaps ironically, I can see it just fine without a dropbox account.

This post put a smile on my face and a song in my heart. (Cool)

The size of the image was too big to attach. And it is rahter weird that you are not able to view it since the permissions I have granted on this link dictate that anybody with the link should be able to view the image.

Anyway, the issue is resolved. I think I should use firefox for MHB.
