I have seen some postings of images not working in Facebook but not the problem I have had for several months. When I access Facebook, most images do not appear but some do and the arbitrariness of it is baffling. For example, 3 of my 13 profile photos appear on the thumbnail page. A slightly higher number will display in their full form if I select one and then scroll through the photos (but still not ALL of them - very odd). The same thing happens with my photo albums. Also, if I embed a photo into a message to a Facebook friend it uploads but won't display on my screen. For these reasons I have had to use Opera to use Facebook now for months, although FF remains my default browser.

I did not report this for a long time because I haven't found anyone else with the problem. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open my profile pics page or any photo album page
Actual Results:  
About 15-20% of uploaded images display

Expected Results:  
95-100% of uploaded images display (leaving 5% for possibility of corrupted files)
Please update to firefox 3.6, then test in safe mode.

I will report, try remedies and if necessary report again soon. For several months I have been very busy and using my company laptop (ThinkPad) almost exclusively, instead of my personal laptop (Mac), I also haven't had time to do much Facebooking. I'll try to report in the next week. Thanks all.
