Firefox not displaying some images linked from Photobucket

Firefox 19.0 there is a website where they have a gallery of pictures all the images from the gallery are hosted on Photobucket, they use to show up as normal but now for some reason they don't, I tried clearing the cookies and the cache, I made sure the download images automatically is check and every other bit of advise I could find on the web to no avail.

One thing I notice though is if you right click the missing image to get to view image information you will see Location: the address of the image is correct (copy and paste in the address bar bring up the image) Type: text/html (This is odd it should be img/jpeg) Size: 0 kb (of course the image was not downloaded) Dimension: 0 x 0 (again no image downloaded)

So if anybody has an idea how to fix this it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Try these steps

  • clear your cookies and give a try.
  • Make sure that your Firewall/Antivirus not blocking the website/image.
  • Check whether you installed any Image block addons.

Thanks for the reply iamjayakumars but I've been thru that before, I've clear the cookies and the cache, firewall is off, I'm on a Mac no antivirus, and I never installed an image blocker addon.

Everything seems to be in order to work properly but it's not working for a reason that escaped me so far.

Re: Firefox not displaying some images linked from Photobucket

Are there any publicly available links you may give that others can test ?

Have you tried using an alternative browser, does that work ?

One of the numerous pages that doesn't work for me

http://www1.coe.neu.edu/~dan/R124/highs.html

I'm on a Mac and everything works fine with the Safari browser

The images on that page aren't links to real images, but at least currently link to an html page (page info > media shows type text/html).
You can see that if you right-click an image and open the image in a new tab by middle clicking the View Image entry in the right-click context menu.
Firefox seems to have a problem to display the image in this case.

Not that I disagree with you but if you look at the source code of that page

little excerpt here

<table style="text-align: left; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"
border="8"  cellspacing="5">
<td style="text-align:center;"> 
<img src="http://s117.photobucket.com/albums/p157/danster-nj/RR/R124/26.jpg"
BORDER=9   style="width:205px; height:250px;">
     
<td style="text-align:center;"> 
<img src="http://s117.photobucket.com/albums/p157/danster-nj/RR/R124/26b.jpg"
BORDER=9   style="width:410px; height:500px;">
     
<td><font color="white" size="1">...
<td>
<img src="http://s117.photobucket.com/albums/p157/danster-nj/RR/R124/26bibi.jpg"
BORDER=9   style="width:410px; height:500px;">
     
<tr> </table>

They are actually image tags and as such should display the images I would think.

Well of course the coding didn't show up but if you do a show source you'll see by yourself. That being said why is it that Firefox sees it at a text/html page and more importantly I do I fix that issue?

Re: Firefox not displaying some images linked from Photobucket

Good luck with using Chrome.

I will edit the title from

  • Firefox not displaying images hosted on Photobucket

to

  • Firefox not displaying
    some images hosted on linked from Photobucket

I daresay the problem is trying to get the correct link from photobucket rather than anything else. Also I note the page you linked to gives quite a few validation errors.

This link is to photobucket, an image of the initial edit of this post:

And this is one of the images you couldnot see in Firefox
