Question Why won't Facebook & Myspace profile pictures display in any browser on this computer
For some reason Myspace and Facebook pictures won't display on my computer. In Facebook, the pictures come up gray and in Myspace, I get the same icon users have as if they never uploaded a picture at all. This is not only happening to my profile picture but EVERYONES. This is occuring on every browser I have installed: IE, Firefox, and Opera. It is only occuring on this computer. I have resarted multiple times (it's been occuring for the last month). I have cleared the cache. I made sure that nothing is blocking it in Trusted Zones. Something is blocking these images from coming through. Any suggestions?


Here's a screen shot:

UPDATE: My coworker is experiencing the same symptoms on his machine? I know IT can block certain sites but is it possible to block profile pictures in certain sites? Is this a server side issue?
