Hi-
I think I have a problem with firefox. I use Yahoo for my email and recently have not been able to view any pictures, that are being sent to me. Is there a setting I'm overlooking somewhere? The only extensions I use are are flashbloc and IE lite. Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Are the pictures embedded in the E-mail, or do they come as attachments?

Hi--

Embedded means that the pictures are just suppose to display, right? If that's correct then yes, they're embedded, instead of pictures all I get is a box with a little page looking icon in it.

OK, usually the only time I have a problem is when someone in my address book sends me something with pictures. When I recieve something from a website, (Microsoft, Yahoo, CNET, spam, etc.) everything is fine, but when a friend sends me something (forwarding a joke, for example) then nine times out of ten the pictures won't display. ?????? :thumbsup: Very frustrating. I don't understand what's happening. Any help please............

Thank you.

Well, what happens when you open your mail in IE? I suspect it is Yahoo filtering what they consider possible harmful images. You have IE Lite so just right click and select IE.

Embedded means that the picture is pasted into the body of the message as opposed to attached to the e-mail as a separate file.

In TB, check your settings in Tools/Options/Attachments/Download actions/View and edit actions. See what is there for JPEGS.

I have this problem too.

I use Comcast Mail, in order to seee colorful text and stuff like that I have to open it in IE.

Try using the IE Tab Addon for Firefox or just opening your email in IE.
