Hi there,

I'm having trouble getting a rotating image script working on a site. Unfortunately it's not displaying correctly in Firefox or IE9 and I need some help to fix that and wondered if anyone would be kind enough to help please?

It seems to get stuck on the Sharpie animation (the second one in a sequence of 9) in IE and is jumpy throughout in Firefox, though it seems to be working fine in Opera and Chrome.

From my limited knowledge - and it's limited - I think it has something to do with animated gifs not displaying correctly in Firefox but it could also have something to do with the time delay settings in the coding itself. When I originally added in the time delays I based it on the length of each animated gif and added in an initial time delay of 3 seconds as you can see below. How do I fix it so I can see the rotating banner in full in all browsers?

Not an exeprt in javascript but don't you think it should be written in jquery that has 99% browser compatibility?
