Why doesn't Firefox display all photos posted on Facebook?

Firefox will display some, but not all, photos posted by my friends on Facebook. IE8 displays them all. Do I need to reconfigure FireFox settings to see all photos posted on Facebook?

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

  • Check the permissions for the domain in the current tab in "Tools > Page Info > Permissions"
  • Check that images are enabled: Tools > Options > Content: [X] Load images automatically
  • Check the exceptions in "Tools > Options > 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.

Make sure that you do not block third-party images, the permissions.default.image pref should be 1.

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

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