    Is it a working image? Do you have security enabled, like a firewall?

    Do other, similar images work for you?

    If so (in regard to the last question only): it's a problem dependent on it's file type, the size of that particular image, or a problem being caused by the security of the network on, most likely. If not, it could be any number of security problems, like I mentioned before, your Firefox cache could be full... this situation could be caused by a ton of things, and you've left some pretty vital questions unanswered, so I'm not sure what to tell you as of now.

    Ok. I have AVG. I just cleared everything on Firefox and used CCleaner and it still is not working. So, yeah. Help. I can view everything else except when I click on that thing it will not load the image. <_<

    It's because pictures from websites are broken (like they aren't there anymore).

    And I guess basically it tries to view the picture, even though it's there, so it doesn't stop "trying."

    I have this same problem, I'm not sure about how to fix it. Just right click and copy the image location into a new tab

    We already figured this out. I was the first to post that the links were broken and the server was down, and twenty people decided to repeat after me; had you read the topic, you would have seen one of those answers.

    Hoping this gets locked.

    To recap, it's the server the images were coming from that's down, and this forum does what he described in that scenario. The likelihood is those images aren't down eternally, just for a while.

    Just to clarify, I don't think that that the server is down; it's just that the images are not loading. if you copy the image location (aka link) and paste it into your address bar you can see the picture, which means that there is nothing wrong the the server or picture link. And what i posted above is a way of getting around the picture not loading
