    The Problem
    Thumbnails for photo albums in Facebook don't show using IE9 .I just get the white block where thumbnail photo's should be (see picture). It does the same thing in all Facebook pages with photo's including other peoples sites.
    It also does it for anyone else signing to FB on this computer.

    Things I've tried:

    The actual picture will show once you drill past the blank thumbs.
    Thumbs show great with Firefox.
    The thumbs's show on other computers with IE with this person's account. This indicated to me that it's not a Facebook problem.
    All security settings have been reverted to default.
    They don't show in Safe Mode.
    No problem veiwing thumbnails in other internet site's.
    Set to "view mixed content" but have tried others.
    Tried "with and without" compatability view
    All add-ons disabled
    Tried 32 and 64 bit (32 bit is default)
    Rolled IE9 back to IE 8, no help. Now I'm back to IE9.
    Tried with lowest security settings.
    Tried with no antivirus and no firewall.
    Cleaned out temporary internet files with CCleaner and deleted them at the site.
    Run antivirus & malware scans daily.
    Other Facebook users can sign it to their account on this computer and the thumbs do not work.
    I've spent over 20 hours searching and trying new stuff and nothing works. It's got to be something with Internet Explorer on this specific computer. I've signed into Facebook on three other computers and everything works fine.
    Please!!! What am I missing???
