Pictures I try to upload on a page are not visible, except for a blank square.

Posted

When trying to upload an image, like f.e. .jpg, it does not show in the webbrowser. Nor do I get to see some images. When I upload a picture, I only get to see a small blank square. When trying to use IE I get the same problem, but only then I get to see a black X. Is there something wrong with my computer or my browser(s)? And if so, what can/should I do about it?

If images are missing then check that you aren't blocking images from some domains.

  • Press the F10 key or tap the Alt key to bring up the hidden "Menu Bar" temporarily.
  • Check the permissions for the domain in the currently selected tab in "Tools > Page Info > Permissions"
  • Check "Tools > Page Info > Media" for blocked images
  • Select the first image link and use the cursor Down key to scroll through the list.
  • If an image in the list is grayed and "Block Images from..." has a check-mark then remove this check-mark to unblock images from this domain.

Make sure that you do not block (third-party) images, the permissions.default.image pref on the about:config page should be 1.


Make sure that you haven't enabled a High Contrast theme in the Windows/Mac Accessibility settings.

Make sure that you allow pages to choose their own colors.

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

Note that these settings affect background images.

There are extensions like Adblock Plus (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) and security software (firewall, anti-virus) that can block images and other content.

Are the images missing, i.e. pasting the URL in the location bar fives a 404 file not found error?

It is possible that the images were blocked by security software and not uploaded or ended up in the wrong folder or have a wrong name on the server.
