Am not seeing images on certain pages with Firefox

I am using Firefox 3.6.24 with Win XP.

Why am I not seeing the pics on this page?

http://www.impactguns.com/used-guns-for-sale.aspx

I see the writing, prices, etc., but not pics.

I do see pics on normal pages such as Drudge, Yahoo, and other pages.

I do see the pics on this page when I switch over to EI.

I do have Load Images Automatically checked in FF.

?

Why? The current release is 14.0.1. Aren't you using automatic updates?
(It seems that about 1% of people are still using Firefox 3.6 for some
odd reason, though.)

Hard to tell without installing such a dated version of Firefox, and it
could still be a problem in just your installation, somehow.

What happens if you right-click a place where an image should appear
(and the alt text now appears instead) and select "Image information"?

It looks fine to me in Opera 12.x, but as Jukka suggested, it's hard to
tell what a way-old Firefox version might be triggering on.

For all I know, your FF version may be triggering on the fact that the
images do not have width and height set, but that's just a quick guess.

Given the fact that Firefox 3.6.24 was released over two years ago, there
have been many updates (including important security upates) since then
(including end-of-life for the 3.6.x product line earlier this year), soI
suggest you rather upgrade FF to the latest version (15.0 was officially
released this week).

Time to update, the old 3.6.X version no longer supported. FireFox is
now at 14.0.1 http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/

Do you have the AddBlock+ extension? That can be the cause. Because
there is nothing wrong with the images on the page.

Testing with AdBlock Plus on Firefox 15, after clearing cache, the pages
still show on the page. And AdBlock plus does not seem to to filter
images very aggressive, at default settings. But some ad blocking
software may well use criteria based on "typical" ad sizes and may
therefore block e.g. all images of some specific sizes. However, the
images appear to be of different sizes here.

There's a remote possibility that lack of image information in markup
(<img ... width=... height=...>) and in CSS might cause the issue on
some browser with some extension. Adding such information is generally
advisable, anyway, as it speeds up page rendering and avoids changes in
page layout during loading. At least it would not hurt to try, first
with one image, whether this helps.

Bingo!!

I've had AddBlock on for so long a time I totally forgot about it.

That was the problem. Pics are there now. Somehow the page was set not
to show them.

As far as the fact of my using an older version of FF, it's because
some of the add-on/plugins I use so much of the time will not work
with the newer version. Plus I dislike some of what they've done with
the later versions.

Thanks!!

It was a WAG. AdBlock Plus can sometimes block images when served from a
different domain from the main page.

I installed 15.0 yesterday. There was no notification. I just
check the site every week or so.

With the newer version Firefox offers to install an update service
"Mozilla Maintenance Service". Once installed your FF will auto-update.

I know. I prefer to know when my software is updated. If
something breaks, I prefer to have an idea what has changed.
