Any errors in the Web Developer > Error Console (Ctrl+Shift+J) or Web Console (Web Developer > Web Console;Ctrl+Shift+K)? See also:

Are you using relative links to the image files?
Can you post (part of) the code?

Make sure that you are using forward slashes in the file paths and not backslashes.

Check the "Tools > Page Info > Media" tab for blocked images (scroll through all the images with the cursor Down key).

Thank you so much for your reply!
Here is the code with image and data in the same folder...<img src="life.jpg" width="403" height="403"/>

separate folder...<img src="c:/pictures/life.jpg">,

Error message: File not found

Firefox can't find the file at /C:/Users/Michael/Pictures/Mom Pics/life.jpg.
Check the file name for capitalization or other typing errors.
Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted.

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Links_to_local_pages_do_not_work

You can find the correct link on the location bar by opening the file in Firefox via Firefox > New Tab > Open File or you can drag the file in a Firefox window.
