Placing a Responsive Content Slider...

I am having a problem placing Responsive Content Sliders within RSD "Tabs". I am not sure where the problem lies.
I have used the Tab component to set up 5 tabs on a page. On each tab I want to place a Content Slider.
I have only installed the first two ("Rectangles" and "Scallops").
On opening the page, the slider on the active tab (Rectangles) kicks off and behaves normally.
If I go to another tab(say Scallops), the slider on that tab is missing the Picture and only has the Icon Indicators visible.
If I go back to Rectangles that only shows the Icon Indicators. On this Slider I also have a Paragraph which is then missing also. If I refresh the page, the pictures and paragraphs appear and the slider starts running.

Both Sliders work fine if installed on a normal page.
The link to the page is:

Please can anybody advise me?
Thank you

Hi Nick,
The slider on that page seems to work fine for me in FX.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Hi Eric
Thank you.
I had tested in IE & Chrome on laptop and Chrome and CM Browser on Android tablet, but not FX! You are right, it does work in FX!!
What would cause that difference, where should I start looking?
Thanks for your help

I looked at it in FX,Chrome,IE11,and Edge and it seems to work fine. Did you try ctrl+f5 ?

Hi Eric
Thanks for your reply.
Yes I tried Ctrl + F5, but no difference. I also tried it on another laptop, but same behaviour?
Any idea what this points to?
Thanks

I would remove all the extra jquery links your using.
<script src="cc-slideshow-rectangles/js/jquery-1.8.2.min.js"></script>

Hi Eric
Thank you.
That specific line of code occurs 3 times on the Gallery page (in the headers of Menu and the two slideshows).
If I remove all 3, then a still image appears for each slideshow, but no rotating pics. (I have left it in this status for now)
If I only remove this code from both or even just the last slideshow(s), then it has no effect - exactly the original symptoms I initially described.
I apologise for dragging this on - should I rather log a ticket?
Thanks

You removed them all. Leave the one highest up.

Hi Eric
I have reinstated the first (highest) set of code.
On page open the first slider runs.
Go to second tab - pictures not displayed - only the icon indicators showing.
Return to first tab - pictures not displayed - only the icon indicators showing.
Refresh - slideshow appears and starts running.
I am confused!
Thanks

I checked the site shortly after the first post in this thread appeared, and my findings were as follows.

1. In 64-bit Firefox Quantum, the symptoms mentioned seemed to apply, but, after clicking once or twice on the Rectangles and Scallops tabs, everything started working as it should.

2. In Chrome the symptoms mentioned applied, and no amount of clicking on the tabs would get the thing going.

Eric's second post in this thread, and my experience suggests to me that the coding does work, but somehow overburdens some browsers in some computers/devices. It might be interesting to see what would happen if the slider pictures were really small (say 4 or 5 KB) and there were only two or three of them in each slider.
