I'm having a problem with an animated gif that I'm using as a splash screen for a new site. The site can be found here
I've made an image of a grasshopper that begins as a lead color and slowly changes to gold. When launching the file from my local machine, it performs perfectly. However, when after uploading the file and visiting the site for the first time, I noticed that the image will first flash gold, and then revert back to its proper progression. The effect will be repeated if I use a shift/ctrl refresh, but not with a normal refresh.
Does anyone know why this would happen? It's sort of ruining the effect. Any help would be appreciated.
Also, is there a way to make the framerate consistent across browsers? I'm finding that safari plays this image very slowly.
