Google icon set image appears on homepage p why? AlanGeGolmon 6/30/12 8:05 PM
Hello,
The attached file is a screen cap of the Google Home page as I've been seeing it for the last week.  There is an image that appears to be a collection of Google icons of various kinds.  The image is linked, but the link just returns the same home page. 

I start by entering the following home page into the browser's URL line:

http://www.google.com

this is redirected to

https://www.google.com

before the page loads and the extra image appears overlaying the search bar.

My browser is FireFox 13.  I'm running the NoScript addon, but all Google scripts are currently allowed.  The addon doesn't show any other scripts as being blocked on this page.  In addition, Javascript is allowed to run.

I don't see this image using IE 9 or Chrome 18.

Any ideas why I'm seeing this image?

Thanks for your time,
Alan DeGolmon

https is a security page, as in when you enter into your bank account.  Security pages add the (s).
 
Try logging into google from another country.  
 
 
Just an idea to toss out there.

This sounds like the same issue reported by two other users, also in Firefox:

Have you tried starting Firefox in safe mode (all add-ons disabled)?

Deleteing the cookies didn't do anything in my case.

The image overlay was exactly the same, as in the other 2 users posts, with a link pointing back to the google.com page.

In my case, the problem disappeared just as misteriously as it appeared, about a week later. Also, running firefox in safe mode was of no help. Chrome and IE did not exhibit the problem.
