Hi

This does not sound like an issue with Firefox but is something that the Gmail support team should be able to help you with.

A lot of email senders (mostly bulk email senders) use "beacon" images to detect that a message was viewed. This is why you can usually choose not to load images in a message until you first confirm that you want to do that.
