The West Virginia cultural service upgraded their website.

https://archive.wvculture.org/vrr/va_select.aspx

After the upgrade, I and many others cannot view the images in Firefox.

Some other browsers are not affected.

I have gone through the troubleshooting guide but still cannot view the images.

Any help is appreciated. Terry

A little background info: When they upgraded the site there was a great uproar because these images were shared on many, many genealogy sites. The links were killed and the web developers made a change that redirected the old links to the new. I don't know the technical aspect.

You should post screenshots from a working browser compared to what you see in Firefox. We don't know where the images should be.

This does not appear to be a Firefox issue.

Sorry for the late reply. I downloaded MS Edge and and can now see the images. By clicking on one of the image files it loads a page and by right clicking and choosing 'open image in new tab' the image is displayed. If I go to Edge and copy the URL of the image that I can view, and then paste that URL in Firefox, I get the 404 error. Is this because the site is not secure?

We had another thread about issues with this website and it appears that Firefox uses a wrong baseStr for the images and tries to load the images from www.wvculture.org and not from archive.wvculture.org. I posted a JavaScript bookmarklet in the thread that fixes the images.

javascript:void(document.querySelectorAll('img[src^="http://"').forEach(e=>{e.setAttribute('src',unescape(e.getAttribute('src')).replace(/^http:\/\/www.wvculture.org/,'https://archive.wvculture.org'))}))

Thank you for the response Cor-ei. So what do I do with the script so the images will load? And, can Firefox include a patch to incorporate this fix for all users?
