NO JPEG images will load in firefox, on any page, when I'm connecting to the internet via 3G tethering on my mobile phone. This has been confirmed to ONLY affect Firefox on Windows: the Mac version of firefox works fine, as does IE in Windows. .GIF images load fine -- only JPEGs do not load. Images load fine in firefox when using another connection, but again, I have confirmed that they load in other browsers fine on the same connection that is problematic for firefox.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect to t-mobile 3G network via wifi tethering (or potentially other unsecured ad-hoc networks, etc...)
2. Open firefox, load page
Actual Results:  
JPEG images do not display; only alt-text is shown in place of them.

Expected Results:  
display images normally

updated all plugins, disabled any that should potentially affect web page rendering.
