    Firefox 23 on Fedora 17. Will not show pictures if cookie permissions are set to block or session. Full cookie permissions required. Everything works fine on my bone-stock set-up of Chrome, which is why I have it.

    Problems did not appear until Cloudflare’s stuff was incorporated.

      Same observation here, Cloudflare is the culprit. Once I allowed them the images load fine. I use Adblock and Noscript in Firefox. So my browsing in pretty ‘safe’ in that I have to specifically allow something to show.

  • neoconfection

    Google Chrome, version 29 something. The pictures show in the text, but the photo albums never do.

    Loads fine in Canada.

    Just started doing it to me today.

    Firefox 23.0

    I’m in Michigan, if that matters.

    Happening to me a bit recently. No pics for the last few days. Running Firefox Aurora 25.0a2 (August 30th 2013) on a Windows 7 ultimate PC

    • Moose Flavored

      In response to Stainislao’s comment, that might be the culprit, as I have cookie disabling addons installed and I also cannot see the pictures.

        Very strange. Am looking into it.

  • Suburban

    Over the last week, I couldn’t get pictures/images to load. Seems to be fine now. Currently running IE 7.0, because Chrome was crashing my computer, and I haven’t bothered to uninstall and reinstall yet.
    Windows 7
    Had to fix Compatibility View to allow posting comment.

    The comment section also has problems.

    I know you have to pay the bills, but there are so many add-ons and plug-ins on this website that it takes forever to load. And yes, I have high-speed internet.
