  1. Hello,
    I'm running firefox right now, and it's the updated version, 2.0.
    I have ZoneAlarm, as my firewall.
    In wikipedia, my pictures cannot be displayed.
    I tried going through IE, and it works.
    Can someone please help me?
    Thanks.

    Its almost certainly one of those fancy extentions you have loaded up. Try disabling them and accessing the page.

    I have had this same problem with firefox as well on random websites. I got tired of messing with all the plug-ins and extensions. So I downloaded Opera instead. And I like it much better and have no problems. This may be a good alternative for you!?!?

    Sorry Alvdy, but I tried that, and it doesn't work.
    and sorry, halo71, but i don't want to switch browsers, and it's only on one website.

    SNGX1275, sorry but, it started before I had the plugins.
    Do you have zone alarm?
    Can you get wikipedia to display all images?

    Thanks

    No I don't have zone alarm, but you could test out that theory by disabling it temporarly.

    I use Opera.
