No images in Firefox

Mac OS 10.5.8, Firefox 3.6.3

I've had a long standing issue on RetouchPro where certain images aren't seen in Firefox but are in Safari. I do see attachments in threads, but I don't see the images that accompany the RetouchPro Live adverts, nor those that accompany Tutorials.

To the best of my knowledge this doesn't occur on other sites, but maybe it does and I just don't notice it.

Any ideas on why this might be or solutions I might try?

Re: No images in Firefox

Try to change your preferences within Firefox. there should be something like "Block Images" or "Block Advert"

Re: No images in Firefox

Good idea, but didn't work. I went into preferences and unchecked:

Block Pop-ups
Block Reported Attack Sites
Block Reported Web Forgeries

but no joy.

I did notice though that under "Applications" these content types have no default application assigned to them. Could any of them be likely culprits?

Re: No images in Firefox

it should not be like this. The problem will be somewhere else. What about to reinstall Firefox?

Re: No images in Firefox

You're blocking the referrer. That conflicts with the technique we use to prevent other sites from linking directly to our images.

You'll need to dig into your adblock or security software, they're all different.

Doug, on my Mac I'm not really using any dedicated programs like that. And if I were wouldn't it affect Safari to the same extent? Or is this something I'd find in Firefox's preferences?

Sorry for the grief, I'm not a techie.

Re: No images in Firefox

I understand totally. I used to have a page devoted to tips about this, but it became too much of a chore to keep updated. I'd suggest toggling various plugins off and on until you locate which is causing the problem, then google its name along with "referrer block".

Re: No images in Firefox

Problem is, I already turned off all add-ons with no good effect. But I'll google around. Thanks, Doug.
