I cannot see profile photos on Facebook. How can I fix this?

I just started using Firefox a day or two ago. I didn't notice a problem with his browser while on Facebook until I attempted to change my profile pic. Now I can't even download a profile photo and none of the profile photos appear when I log on to Facebook.

It can't be a problem with my Security or Account Settings on FB because I share this PC with someone else in my household and they are having the same problem with their FB account.

With Facebook on display, click on the site identity button (for details on what that is see the How do I tell if my connection to a website is secure? article) and then on More Information. This will open up the page info dialog.

First select the Permissions panel, make sure that "Load Images" is set to allow (selecting Use Default should also work)

Next select the Media panel, then click on the first item in the list. Use the down arrow key to scroll through the list. If any item has the option "Block images from (domain name)" selected, de-select the option.

This should hopefully resolve your issue, but also see Fix problems that cause images to not show.

Some add-ons can also block images, for example if you have AdBlock Plus installed, make sure that you have not accidentally created a filter to block the images.
