Firefox not displaying Ebay photos

  griffon 56 10:31 06 Jul 2007

Hi folks,
I recently downloaded the latest edition of Firefox, since when it will not display photos in Ebay and some images on other sites. I've ticked all the likely boxes but found no cure. Any ideas?

Firefox should indicate that plug-ins are required to view all the content of a particular website when appropriate and offer the chance to download them.

You can download Java Runtime and Adobe Flash (different versions for IE and Firefox) at:

You will need to Enable Java from FF's Tools>Options>Content tab and, from the Security tab, Warn me if sites attempt to install add-ons.

Thanks everybody. I've got Java enabled and I've listed ebay as a site specifically allowed to load images, so it must be the plug-ins. I'll let you know, but it looks hopeful.

I've installed the Adobe and Java plug-ins and read the advice on, but images still don't load. Any further tips?

I know this is a boring little post but the problem is irritating in the extreme. Has anybody got any further advice on how to cure it, please?

Thanks Raven, I've looked at that and see what you're getting at. It says, roughly, that if you've been having problems the creation of a new profile with only the basic settings might cure the them and you'd be able to import things from the old profile one at a time to rebuild a new one.

I don't know whether I can be a.sed, computers always seem to have to need a lot of tweaking, they never seem to run faultlessly, even on basic stuff. It's like coming out to your car and finding that today for the first time in years the doors won't open.
