I don't have such problems but have others. I'm not sure but could be something about cache. Try to keep it empty and see if you have problems again.

Are they gifs on your website or someone else's website? If its your site you can fix the issue by appending a random variable to the end of the image url.

You'll need to use a server side language. Do you have php available on your server?

It forces the browser to reload the image because it appears as a new url/image to the browser. It could also be a problem with your gifs. How did you make them? Did you set them to loop? Got a link to your site?
