Why should this be a problem of views, its a bug of views slideshow :)

I just guess that this cannot be enough informations to solve this issue. Provide a views export, make a link to your site etc.

I have a view that lists images. I was trying to use this module, but it's not showing all the images in IE. It shows the first image, but after that the next image don't show....bt in firefox it works properly..

There is probably a javascript error. Look in the bottom toolbar in IE to see what the js error might be. Post that it could help.

Title: view slideshow can'twork in ie6 » View slideshow font problem in IE6 & 7

Hello - I have views working with slideshow on a website I am doing for a friends Rugby club.
I have created a news view that prints nodes of a certain type in a lock.

When it is run in IE6 or IE7 it gives me some really weird FONT format for for node titles, but in Firefox or Google works fine.
Any ideas? By the way this site is being build for a proto-type so it's still very much WIP.

Re-opening the issue. In the 7.x version the problem persists. I can confirm it only occurs in IE (6-8; IE9 is not confirmed yet). No JS errors occur.

The problem seems to be Views Slideshow related because it goes away when the view format is changed from Slideshow to any HTML list or any other format.

I need more than that. Example site? there could be many different reasons why this doesn't work.

selecting both ClearType options in slideshow settings fixed this.

Yes, it does :)

Selecting both clear type options EVENUTALLY fixes it. But the original "ugly" text pops up for a fraction of a second (but long enough to see) before it displays properly. I never had this issue (as far as I remember) using the module on D6.

The view can be currently seen by going to and looking at What Our Customers Say.

Any other tweaks?

And I'm experiencing this on IE8.

I'm having the same issue as Lloyd. After applying the ClearType options the text is fixed. However it flashes back to the pixelated during the transition. Is there anyway to fix this?

For people that may be wondering what "selecting Clear Type options" may be and how this works: For me, it was installing the Json2 library as shown here:
The possible values you find here:
Of interest to us is the $.support.opacity
option. This is set to false by default. So you select "Cleartype" and enter
like shown here

Then you click on "Update advanced option".
What got me tricked first is the option vanishes now, but shows again when you select "Cleartype" again.
Voila, IE renders the font better. The ugly effect may reappear during the transition. But if the transition is not too slow, it is not visible.

I had another problem: I had a background image applied to the block directly, which vanished because of the clear type option. So I applied the background image to the views row (the nodes/images whatever that are cycled in your slideshow) and everything was fine.
You can see the solution here:
in the frontpage slideshow in the header.
