What are your image blocking preferences?  (under Edit, Preferences, Privacy,
Images)

Which site(s) specifically are you blocking?

I'm guessing that in general you are allowing images, but trying to block
specific servers.  Since the image servers don't match up with the website
addresses, this doesn't work as you might think.  Try right-clicking on the
images and select the "Block images from this server" option.  Together with the
"Accept images from originating server only" option in preferences, you should
be able to avoid most ads.

i doubt this is a dupe of 186576.

more likely, it's a result of some work we did to image code in 1.4a. the
problem should be fixed in 1.4b.

reporter, can you please test 1.4b?
