I have found that after a short time Firefox stops displaying images in Facebook and only shows a description of what it thinks the image is. I have Firefox version 95.0.2 (64-bit) with Windows 10 with the latest updates installed. I have a Dell laptop with an i7 cpu and 63 GB of RAM. This does not occur with other browsers. Reloading the page does not fix it, only a complete shutdown and startup of Firefox.

We have seen more reports about loading images on Facebook where it stops loading new images after some time.

You can try to reload and bypass the cache. You can reload webpage(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
  • press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)

You can try to set these prefs on the about:config page to see if that has effect.

  • network.http.http3.default-max-stream-blocked set it to 0
  • network.http.http3.default-qpack-table-size set it to 0
