Firefox wont display pictures in news articles I read

more options

I have latest version of Firefox. It wont display pictures in articles I read online unless I hold down shift and click the refresh button then do a control/F5. The articles all display properly in MS Edge if I use it. I am trying to understand what settings I need to change in Firefox to permanently fix this so I don't have to do this repeatedly.

If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block content (Adblock Plus, NoScript, DuckDuckGo PE, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin) always make sure such extensions do not block content.

Firefox shows a purple shield instead of a gray shield at the left end of the location/address bar in case Enhanced Tracking Protection is blocking content. You can click shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection. You can check the Web Console for messages about blocked content.
