Check the 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.

That worked like a charm. I found the image that had the 'Block...' check, unchecked it and profile photos display now. Tools, Page Info....

Thanks!
