The image can be made to appear if you "View Page Info" or "Inspect Element" (using add-on) and exit.

Are there settings that I need to change to correct this behavior? It started in build 32

Currently running 32.0.3 in XP SP3

Is the image on the first page, and you are trying to look at the image alone, or is the image not show on the first page?

Do you have any kind of blocking programs?

I anything else amiss?

What is the web address you are having the problem, and what image?

more options

I rt-click on image and select from menu: "Open Link in New Tab" . So, I am trying to look at the image alone. The new tab displays the background color but no image. I can rt-click in the new tab window and select "View Page Info". Upon exiting, the Info Page, the image is displayed.

Add-ons that might block: google disconnect, google privacy, ghostery, facebook disconnect, adblock plus, better privacy, pure URL, self-destructing cookies, track-me-not.

Look to

and try the image

(The direct link does not open the image either)

Poke around safe web sites. Are there any problems?

No change until I switched to Safe Mode (after applying the fixes).

Must be a add-on then. I already turned off groups of add-ons and restarted checking if images load. I was without any add-ons and still experiencing the fault. That's when I asked the community my question.

I am not sure, but some of your add-ons look like they duplicate functions.

more options

You have several tab and image add-ons.

Some added toolbar and anti-virus add-ons are known to cause Firefox issues. Disable All of them.

more options

Can you be specific? Which are you recommending that I disable?

Remember that I've disabled all Add-ons but still had the issue.

How about the Plug-ins? Are those disabled in safe mode?

Thanks for your time regarding this problem.


more options

In safe mode, only add-ons and user settings are disabled. Plugins are programs that Firefox finds on the computer. They are separate from Firefox, but FF can disable their use in the Add-ons Manager.

I would like you to try something. Do you have a camera or cell that can take pictures of the screen? Internal programs won't work for what I want. Load a web page, take a shot, right click on an image, take a shot, select view image or open new tab/window, take a shot.

Post those pics here by pressing the Browse button by Post Reply.

When I switch to the default theme, the image loads as expected.

Using LittleFox 2.0.28

I wonder what changed?

more options

There is a specific style sheet used in the default theme that handles such a window with a single image. It looks that the code that handles this page is broken in that theme.

You may want to take this up to the developer of that theme.
