Since being forced to ditch Win7 and use Win10 Firefox won't allow images on an unsecured gardening site that I've been using for years. Chrome does allow the images but I prefer FF as a browser. Is there a way to change this so that I can see the garden pictures?
Also I cannot set FF to be my default browser, despite Googling it and trying the solutions. Nothing works.

If you type Default Apps in the Search bar and select it. Then click on Web Browser and change it here.

As to the issue itself, it may be due to the website itself. What is the name of the URL?

Thank you, James, but I’ve already tried that three times and it still didn’t work. Somewhere in the brain of the laptop there is a block!
The URL is growsonyou.com, can’t give you more info than that, I’m afraid.

Can you make a screenshot on what you see? Perhaps we can figure this out.

I see the 11 out of 12 images at the bottom; I'm missing the same one that James is.

In FF, type about:config in the address bar.
Put permissions.default.image in the search box.
Doublecheck that the value is 1.

If it is, the next place to look is at your addons.

Hi, Thank you for the reply. Permissions is set at 1 so what should I be looking for in addons?
I don't which addons could be blocking the images. I do have Ghostery and Adblock plus. Is that too many? I have Adblock in Chrome but not Ghostery so could that be the problem as Chrome does allow the images?

It looks like FF has at last let me make it the default browser though I'm not sure how it happened.

I turned off Ghostery and now I can see images! so I am now happy. Thank you so much for all the help. Very grateful.

I'm glad you figured out what addon was causing the problem.
Mark this thread solved. At the top of your first post, there is a button.

AdBlockPlus and Ghostery seems to be the same type of extension so choosing one would be best. Since we now know Ghostery caused the issue, perhaps leave the blocking to AdBlock :)
