I'm sorry I thought you were in Vista/7. Press FN + PRT SC on your keyboard to take a screenshot then paste it into Paint then save it and upload it.

I have the same or a similar problem. When I view a photo album on facebook, I can see all the smaller thumbnail photos but when I click on an individual photo to enlarge it and scan though the photo album this way, I see all the content but no photo.

Strange ... any suggestions

FYI, this wasn't an issue until recently. It worked fine before and I can't remember doing any firefox updates???

See Fix problems that cause images to not show and http://kb.mozillazine.org/Images_or_animations_do_not_load

It is possible that you clicked "Block Images" in the right click context menu while trying to save an image.

Check the image exceptions: Tools > Options > Content: Load Images: Exceptions - See Settings for fonts, languages, pop-ups, images and JavaScript

  • A way to see which images are blocked is to click the favicon (Site Identification icon) on the left side of the location bar.
  • A click on the "More Information" button will open the Security tab of the "Page Info" window (also accessible via "Tools > Page Info").
  • Open the Media tab of the "Page Info" window.
  • Select the first image and scroll down though the list with the Down arrow key.
  • If an image in the list is grayed and there is a check-mark in the box "Block Images from..." then remove that mark to unblock the images from that domain.

I had this problem and fixed it by going to; Tools-options-Content and un-checking the load images box, saving, then rechecking it and saving. After a refresh the images appeared.

You can see the permissions for the domain in the current tab in Tools > Page Info > Permissions

  • A way to see which images are blocked is to click the favicon (Site Identification icon) on the left side of the location bar.
  • A click on the "More Information" button will open the Security tab of the "Page Info" window (also accessible via "Tools > Page Info").
  • Open the Media tab of the "Page Info" window.
  • Select the first image and scroll down though the list with the Down arrow key.

I have the same problem, did you ever figure out why the pictures don't show once you click on them?

I am running "Vista" and cant see some of my images in Facebook nor any if I try to view them (enlarge). I can view them fine running "XP" on my laptop. I have tried all suggestions to no avail. I can view images in Internet Explorer and there is no problem.

I can't believe the solution was that simple... but it WAS!!!! Thank you sooooooo much. I was going crazy trying all those other things, but no images were listed as being blocked. I updated my Flash, opened everything wide as far as security goes, and still no images showed. I knew it was Firefox-related because I could see everything using IE.

Thanks again for sharing.
