That's how it works when you have DW build a temp file to preview, and when
you use ROOT RELATIVE links to your images.
When DW build this temp file, it converts ROOT RELATIVE links to DOENT
RELATIVE links so that all content appears properly. THat's the file that
you see when you use F12. When you link away from that file, you are
linking to a page that is saved in your site, and then when you link BACK
you are not returning to the temp file, but rather to the saved file. If
that saved file has ROOT RELATIVE links, the browser will now see a link
beginning with "/" (the root of your site) and start looking in the root of
your hard drive instead since it knows nothing about where your site begins.
Hence, the image is broken.
The solution would be to either always use DOENT RELATIVE links, or to
not use temp files, or to not expect to see images when you link away and
return. Your choice.
