Firefox not able to load images from forums Quote | Reply

Hi

This happens when using Firefox 2 or 3 in Windows XP Pro.

When I click on a link to an image in a forum thread Firefox is unable to display the image telling me that it cannot be displayed because it contains errors. This happens on all image links.

Does anyone know a solution to this. Is it something that needs to be done server side or can I fix this locally.

Thanks in advance for any solutions (except those that involve using IE ;-) )

David

Did you install the NoScript add-on to prevent viruses/trojans/adware/spyware?
If so, you'll need to whitelist this site in preferences.

Hi Bigun

Thanks for your reply.

Err no I didn't installed 'no script add-on's'. Should one have to?

I'm not really familiar with white listing...is there some light you could shed on this whole matter :-)

Thanks

David

Truthfully, that was just my first thought and if you didn't install it; it's kind of moot.

NoScript is a choice.
For more information on that particular add-on itself - here:

Whitelist = permission
Blacklist = no permission.
