There could be many different reasons as to why this is happening. It's hard to help without seeing your code but here are a few of the potential reasons not having to do with code error!

If the question is just generally why something works in one browser but not in another, this is because each browser has a different engine and therefore processes code a little bit differently. This is why it's so important to check your sites in different browsers to make sure everything is working/looking as expected. Check out this article for even more information:

If you look something up on a site like w3schools or mdn web docs it will actually show you browser compatibility of what you're looking up! Below are the links to the image tag pages on these 2 sites. See if you can scroll and find the browser compatibility charts!

Hope this helps!
