Why won't images load in Bing with Firefox 22.0?

Ever since upgrading to Firefox 22.0 images on Bing will not load. Images on Google work fine. Images on Bing work fine in IE. I have tried all the solutions I've come across re: images not loading and it does not fix the problem with FF22.0 and Bing.

You're welcome.

You can enable the Flash plugin as that plugin is used on a lot of web pages.

Firefox will notify you if a plugin is needed that is currently disabled, so you usually do not need to enable all other plugins.

Hello,

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache. In order to try to fix these problems, the first step is to clear both cookies and the cache. Note: This will temporarily log you out of all sites you're logged in to. To clear cache and cookies do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > History > Clear recent history or (if no Firefox button is shown) go to Tools > Clear recent history.
  2. Under "Time range to clear", select "Everything".
  3. Now, click the arrow next to Details to toggle the Details list active.
  4. From the details list, check Cache and Cookies and uncheck everything else.
  5. Now click the Clear now button.

Further information can be found in the Clear your cache, history and other personal information in Firefox article.

Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!

Thank you.

Do any of of those images show in "Tools > Page Info > Media"?

Clear the cache and the cookies from websites that cause problems.

"Clear the Cache":

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

"Remove Cookies" from sites causing problems:

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

Waka-Flocka: I did this previously, but did it again at your suggestion. Nothing changed.

cor-el: when I checked individual cookies:

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

several Bing links were there and I cleared them. Now I get "Trending Image searches" but not the images of my search terms.

Any other suggestions? Thank you.

  • Firefox/Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content: "Clear Now"

Hello,

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information such as bookmarks and history. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.

Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.

Did this fix your problems? Please report back to us!

Thank you.

Well, I'm not ready to have to reset my fonts, colors, and whatever else I'll lose so I think I will hold off on trying this until I get fed up enough with Bing images not working. I wish Mozilla would work out kinks before rolling out endless updates. I haven't been completely happy with FF since 3.6. Smiley Sad Also if they are gearing things toward tablets, it will just case more and more problems for us old timer desktop and laptop users.

Re: Why won't images load in Bing with Firefox 22.0?

You haven't told us how missing images show in "Tools > Page Info > Media" in cases when they are missing.


You can remove all data stored in Firefox from a specific domain via "Forget About This Site" in the right-click context menu of an history entry ("History > Show All History" or "View > Sidebar > History") or via the aboutSmiley Tongueermissions page.

Using "Forget About This Site" will remove all data stored in Firefox from that domain like bookmarks, cookies, passwords, cache, history, and exceptions, so be cautious and if you have a password or other data from that domain that you do not want to lose then make a note of those passwords and bookmarks.

You can't recover from this 'forget' unless you have a backup of the involved files.

It doesn't have any lasting effect, so if you revisit such a 'forgotten' website then data from that website will be saved once again.

Oh!! In "Tools>Page Info>Media" I can click on each "image" link and see individual photos. Does that tell you anything?

Will try the "Forget About This Site" if there is no other solution. Thank you so much!

I just discovered, if I scroll way down on the (blank) Bing "results" page, there are tiny little thumbnail images titled "related topics" in a single column down the left side of the page.
