Code in stead of pictures reading newspaper

Whilst reading my daily newspaper, when i open an article some photos are replaced by code (see example)...

As i said, in some, most of the time it works fine? Seems to be the case when the newspaper uses photos imported from Twitter or an other external source?

Emptying cache (and again and again...) cannot be the solution though?

Thank U!

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}
by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

What security software do you have ?

Make sure that your security software isn't making changes to the HTTP response headers like content-type text/plain instead of text/html.

You can check the Network Monitor.

If necessary use "Ctrl+F5" or "Ctrl+Shift+R" (Mac: Command+Shift+R) to reload the page and bypass the cache to generate a fresh log.
