Images loading different in IE and Firefox

I have a website that has pages generated from a CMS, but images load different in IE and Firefox:

  • In IE all text (the HTML page) loads and displays first, then all images are loaded. But the images are displayed all at once, after all images have been loaded.
  • In Firefox the text (the HTML page) loads and displays first, then all images are loaded and displayed one by one.The Firefox way is much nicer for the user, especially when there are 30+ images on the page.I noticed IE is not always doing this, so it must be the code of the HTML. I see the CMS generates some nested DIV's around the images. Can this be the cause of the way of loading the images?Any ideas how to fix this?

Personally I would assume this apsect of browser behaviour is internal to a specific browser and I very much doubt if you can control it with page content.
IE6 is normally behaving the same as Firefox, loading and displaying images one-by-one.Only in specific situations IE6 seems to load all images before displaying them. I try to figure out what these situations are. I still think it's the nested DIV's, hope anyone can confirm that.
