Animated GIF mystery - Macromedia Fireworks

I had two out of many animated GIFs simply stop running on my web site. From my XP PC, they wouldn't run on either IE6 or NS7. Someone suggested a complicated fix, including changes in my registry, which scared me off. I simply deleted the GIFs from the site and uploaded them again. Now they work just fine. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I know GIF's don't have shelf lives, so something else is happening. I would like to know what went wrong, rather then just uploading fresh copies when this occurs....

    Never heard of it, but that doesn't mean anything.
    Did you try looking at them with different browsers? Maybe a browser issue.

    Do the images work now? Did you upload them again?

    Thank you, Alex and Etiphany. I only tried it on IE5 and 6, and Netscape 7. The GIFs worked on IE5, but not the others. After deleting them and uploading them, they ran as they were supposed to. I just don't understand why ALL the GIFs on the site weren't affected. It was only two of them, and they were side by side on the home page.

    Are they set to play only once? If yes, did you clear your browser cache
    files before viewing them again?
