first, make sure you have cleared the cache on those browsers where it doesn't work.
if that doesn't fix it try this, in common.css under site logo again. try adding this line:

background-repeat: no-repeat;

dont know if that will work but it is worth a try.

UPDATE. Amazingly, Safari shows it OK today. Great! Thanks again. It should have been a cache issue with Safari, which does not seem to refresh web pages as other browsers like Firefox, Chrome or Opera do immediately, in real time.

Refreshing the browser did no work with Safari. But it shows OK now also in Safari, as said above. Thanks for all your great help.

I have found that when the install folder is present at
http://www.example.com/phpBB3/install
during the process of updating phpBB, the phpBB forum is automatically blocked via web. So much that when the update installation is finished, you must delete such install folder to make the phpBB forum accesible via web.

yes, that is normal and phpbb has always required you to delete or rename the folder named install or the board will not work.
