FF 5 on mac is no longer displaying background images that are defined in style sheets. This has woeked correctly for years with older versions.

The problem occurs both in safe mode with all add-ons turned off and in normal mode with add-ons active. I see the missing images error on most sites using style sheets including Mozilla.

Chosen solution

Make sure that you allow pages to choose their colors and that you haven't enabled High Contrast in the Accessibility settings.

  • Firefox > Preferences > Content : Fonts & Colors > Colors : [X] "Allow pages to choose their own colors, instead of my selections above"

Clicking the box for "Allow pages to choose own colors..." did not resolve the problem.

However, clicking the box on the content preference page for "Load images automatically" resolved the problem.

I do not recall seeing the auto-load images option before. I do not know how it got turned off.
