Images on many pages I open with Mozilla are not displayed.
"http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Browser" (this page) is an
example - I see the 'broken image' icon instead of the Mozilla banner at the top.

What build are you running? This worksforme on 0.9.8 and Win2000

I have similar behaviour using 0.9.8 on NT4 SP6.  Though that example url
works for me, many other sites/pages have problems. In particular the main story
picture from http://www.cnn.com consistently is not displayed.  I have to right
click the image and say "View Image" if I want to see it.

I'm on 0.9.8, Win 2000. It seems to be a rather intermittent bug - it will work
fine for several days, then break for a while, then return to working. I
regularly see the behaviour on our intranet homepage. Checking in other browsers
when the problem occurs in Mozilla reveals no problems: Netscape 4.78 & IE 5.0
work fine, so it doesn't seem to be a problem with the server.

Same behaviour in 0.9.9.

This is still happening in 1.0 RC1 on Windows 2000 SP2. I restart Mozilla and
even restart Windows and the images still don't display. It may be related to
bug #123850, because I could see images, then I changed some things in
preferences (not related to images), and when I restart Mozilla, I had this problem.

I kept shutting down and restarting Mozilla and the problem persisted. I killed
the mozilla process in Windows Task Manager and restarted and the problem went away.

I have the same problem. I run Windows 98 with the latest Release Candidate (3)
and often, images are switched for text, which gets annoying really fast.

Windows 98SE and build 2002053008

I'm not sure this is a bug! I can reproduce it if I choose
Preferences->Privacy&Security->Images->Accept images that come from originating
server only
However if I uncheck this, cnn.com (and hotmail.com) look fine.

It's slightly ironic, because the only images that *do* load is some of the
adverts! I think this is because they are specified within javascript, but
someone who has a better knowledge of that sort of stuff would need to say for sure.

wfm then.  Many large sites use akamai and friends to host images.
