Images not loading in IE9 #87

The images in the auto slider don't always load in IE9. I haven't been able to replicate the issue in other browsers.


I'm having the same issue. Seems to happen for me both on desktop ie9 and mobile ie9 (on WP7.5). Not getting any console errors, and it seems rather sporadic. Must be something wrong with the javascript rendering in that engine. Version 4.0 of the slider.

UPDATE: This seems to fix it for me:



I think that the problem is in the imagesloaded library which is used within bxslider. The issue is reported on their github (desandro/imagesloaded#40), but it's not resolved yet.

Temporary solution is to turn off imagesloaded for IE by replacing line 231 with:

if (navigator.appName == "Microsoft Internet Explorer") {
} else {


@ajgagnon - I have implemented the preloadImages: 'visible' functionality (0fd8101) into master. See if that helps!


This new implementation breaks if the image URL already contains an existing querystring params question mark (?) character. We are using querystring parameters on our image links to get them in the correct dimensions.

also, adding timestamp breaks caching and other, SEO-like functionality...
