When I do an image search from about page two on many of the images are gray blocks. When I run the cursor over the gray blocks the image shows up magnified.

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

  • 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.
