Also things like "image may contain cat/people". How do I get FF to show the images?

I see the problem on Facebook (example screenshot attached). I think it's on their end, but I haven't compared other browsers.

Hopefully that's it, but the weird thing is that it shows some images. Thanks

This is common behavior and likely results from FB/IG security settings on the posters profile or yours. I see it all the time. You can prove it to yourself by finding the source of the image with FF directly.
