Firefox and facebook


[link to this post]
 
This started a few days ago where some images in my feed show as black boxes. For example after scrolling for a couple of pages a photo posted will show as a black box. If I click on the picture it opens ok in a new view. Then I will scroll another couple of pages and the posters Icon will not show up, Just a black box.

Things I have done to try and resolve. Refreshed firefpx, deleted cache, deleted user profile, uninstalled and re-installed, disabled adblock plus, disabled hosts file. Running out of options.

Doesnt happen in IE11 or seem to happen on other pages. Clearing the cache seems to fix for a few pages then it starts again.

Anyone suggest a fix?

I have also noticed problems with FF showing images past few days... Driving me up the wall!

Perhaps they have some dodgy code...

The latest versions of FF are not playing well with some add-ons, ad-blockers in particular. This was bound to happen with Mozilla's aggressive update policy. Try disabling some plugins/extensions.

Hope they fix it soon.

Edit: Just noticed it on the Novatech site browsing video cards, on the second page a blank black box where a picture should be!

Thank you, I will hold off updating for now then, as facebook is fine with the previous version.

I would report this bug on bugzilla but you need an account and they want info from you.
