inconsistent in showing photos...ie the thumbnails for articles via my yahoo homepage, my friends' photos on social networking sites, other home pages. Also same prob with maps; no show on weather.com, google maps etc. a general lack of graphics of any kind.

Should be an easy fix- Clear your cache , restart Firefox , try the pages again.

Tools > Options > Advanced > Network - Offline storage- Use the clear cache button.

  • Check the permissions for the domain in the current tab in "Tools > Page Info > Permissions"
  • Check that images are enabled: Firefox > Preferences > Content: [X] Load images automatically
  • Check the exceptions in "Firefox > Preferences > Content: Load Images > Exceptions"
  • Check the "Tools > Page Info > Media" tab for blocked images (scroll through all the images with the cursor Down 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.

There are also extensions (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) and security software (firewall, anti-virus) that can block images.
