Hidden buttons on website

Specs: Windows XP
How do I make hidden buttons on websites show up?

I mean the normal buttons on some websites like Continue or different option buttons don't show up on my computer screen I have to go on a mouse hunt to find them lol I hover my mouse over all areas of the page till the pointer on my mouse turns into a hand and I click the button hoping its the right one lol
Thanks from Jamie

What browser are you using? If it is IE try Firefox just to see if it happens with that too. It will prove whether or not it is an IE issue.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I've got IE and tried to pop over on different window on IE to see if its same problem and the buttons are hidden there too.

Any clue what to do? Any help is appreciated :-)

Hmm, I was expecting it to be a browser issue - obviously not.

I wonder if some of those buttons are produced by "Flash". From FIREFOX go here and install the latest update:
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Make sure you untick any unwanted junk that they try to thow at you (such as Google Chrome or McAfee).

If it should cure the problem then do exactly the same thing from INTERNET EXPLORER - they use different downloads.

Here's an example of a site I'm having problems with. I know on the lefthand side of the page next to the house that says Commercial Verifiers

I know there are hidden buttons because when I mouse over them the pointer changes from a pointer to a hand to click on it.

Hope that makes sense to you :-)

Yep, I'm right with you but it seems to be a tricky one.

I've downloaded the website you gave me and examined its code offline.
The buttons pictures appear to be "png" files.

Go here:
http://www.mywebsite.force9.co.uk/png/

Can you see about 6 sets of multi-colored circles on that page?
I'm trying to establish whether your computer is able to display png files at all.

One other thing to try. From Firefox go to Tools > Addblock Plus and click Disable everywhere (you can untick this later on). Close Firefox, open it again then see if that helps. I'm trying to find the culprit. If Tools is not showing then hold the Alt key down in Firefox.

I didn't mean you disable all plugins (although I guess it might prove something).

All I meant was to disable Addblock Plus, temporarily. Err...that's assuming you have it on board. If not, I wonder if you have some other ad blocker software that is getting a bit too clever.

EDIT:
What Firefox version are you using - go to Help > About Firefox?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I don't think there ARE any hidden buttons on that page you mentioned. There are "tabs" defined by a css script/code, and these "tabs" work much the same as the ol' "areamap" tag. When you pointer is positioned over that defined area, it becomes "clickable"(onClick function).

Perhaps you can provide another website where you believe there are hidden buttons...

Just for info, if I go to the website given in #6 using either Firefox or IE, after a few seconds the following three gray buttons appear to the left of the house, worded:

I'm an Employee

I'm an Employer

I'm not sure

If I click on any one then the information changes on the screen. I don't have to hover the mouse over anything.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
