I received a Yahoo email which contained a set of 33 images, all of which display correctly in W10 and (pardon the expression) Edge. Attachment 0 shows 1 of the 33 images.

Of those 33 images, I can see only 13 using W10 and Ffx 88.0.1. The rest are blank spaces. Attachment 1 is one of the blanks.

Attachment 2 is the URL for one of the blanks. Attachment 3 is an error message that I hope might help to determine what's going on here.

What am I missing? Do I have my Ffx settings messed up? I'd appreciate a nudge in the right direction...thanks!

Attachment 4 shows some error codes that aren't meaningful to me. Perhaps a Yahoo script is meant to receive that data and interpret it. Did that open on its own, or where did it come from?

Can you view the image if you right-click > Open Image in New Tab on the blank placeholder?

I can't see the shield icon in your second screenshot -- if you click it, is Firefox's Tracking Protection feature blocking any content in the page?

Since you shared your add-ons list, I noticed you have Privacy Badger. Can you click its toolbar icon and make sure it isn't blocking stuff in the page?

jscher2000:

Thanks for the quick response. In answer to your questions:

1. The error codes showed up on their own.

2. Each blank image displays properly when I rightclick and select to 'Open in a new tab' or 'Save the file'.

3. Clicking the shield icon opens a dropdown headed with "Protections for mail.yahoo.com", then "Enhanced tracking protection is on for this site".

4. Under Privacy Badger Options, "Privacy Badger has decided to block 805 potential tracking domains so far"; mail.yahoo.com is blocked, i.e. the slider is to the left, and its color is red.

Shall I just change PB's sliders or do away with it altogether?

After that, does Firefox say it is actually blocking cookies or tracking content?

Try adjusting Privacy Badger to see whether you can make it work with Yahoo mail. If it hasn't caused you problems on multiple sites, you probably can keep using it as long as exceptions work.

Scrolling down under "Enhanced tracking protection..." I find this: "Firefox blocked 396 trackers over the past week" and this "396 trackers blocked since May 11, 2021". It would seem that Firefox has been hard at work here...

Well, I'm more focused on the current page, and not past achievements. ;-)

If you have the time and the inclination, I'd like your thoughts/recommendations on using/not using/abusing tracker blockers. In any case, thanks for your help.
