On certain sites pictures of advertised items are available

Asked by Ken on 2013-07-27

On certain sites pictures of advertised items are available. When clicked on, one is taken to a page showing more pictures and details of the product. I see the details but not the pictures. Example site - www.gumtree.co.za. Any ideas what may be missing from my setup?

Does it happen in all browsers?
Do you have any addons enabled?
What is the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; apt-cache policy firefox

Thanks

Thanks for your response! I have just installed Midori and found that it does not happen with that. I do have addons installed but I don't recall off-hand which ones. Here is the output you requested....

Try disabling addons and enable them one by one til you find the culprit. The sites are ok as they work in other browsers.

Thank you very much! The fly in the ointment was Ubuntu Firefox Modifications 2.6. Again, thank you.

Ken.

Thanks actionparsnip, that solved my question.

I owe Firefox Modifications an apology!! It was not to blame for my problem. The culprit was Simple Adblock 1.0.8
