See:

  • You can see the permissions for the domain in the current tab in Tools > Page Info > Permissions
  • You can see all exceptions in Tools > Options > Content: Load Images > Exceptions

You can use these steps to check if images are blocked:

  • Click the "More Information" button to open the "Page Info" window with the Security tab selected (also accessible via "Tools > Page Info").
  • Go to the Media tab of the "Tools > Page Info" window.
  • Select the first image link and scroll down through 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.

Do you mean normal images or images that should be displayed via the Image Control Plugin ?

If the images using the plugin aren't displaying then there is a problem with that plugin. There have been reports in the past that that plugin doesn't always work properly or cause other problems.

sorry, not computer literate, do not understand what a plug in is. I have uploaded pictures to Ancestry. com. I tried to delete some of them and I hit the wrong key. Now all of the pictures and coat of arms are no longer visable. I have uploaded documents from the Social Security website and they are showing up just fine. I've got one more thing to try. Thanks for your input.
