I followed the instructions, see: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Images_in_messages_do_not_appear
Images in messages do not appear should be enabled by defualt

For remote images: go to "Tools -> Options -> (Advanced if using 1.07 or below) -> Privacy -> General" and uncheck the box for "Block loading of remote images in mail messages." It is recommended that you keep this checked as your default setting, however, as spammers can use remote images to detect whether you've viewed messages they've sent to you.

Changing the default of showing the inline images to appear in the mail message area would improve the user experience

Showing default messages (or loading other default content, such as style sheets or HTML <iframe> content) by default allows the message to be tracked, allowing for instance spammers to verify the various email addresses they send stuff out to.  Preventing this is considered more important than displaying fancy shiny messages in all their so-called glory.

Rather than turning off message blocking, you should consider adding the CareerBuilder address to your address book and enabling messages on that whitelist.
