Im unable to view photos on FaceBook , it says my Browser setting were changed. How do I change them back to original settings?


I am unable to click on and view photos loaded to my Facebook page. When a photo is loaded on and you click on it to view larger and post a comment, it will show the comment box but will not show the photo. I can see my albums but if click on a photo to comment it also doesnt show the photo. Shows only the comment box. The FB Help says my Browser settings were changed. I changed nothing. Whats wrong and how do I get FB to show my photos correctly? This is also the case for all my older photos that have been posted from last year.

See 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.
