    That was actually throoper that posted that link, but regardless the problem remains.

    Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox?

    What happens when you click THIS?

    (that's the link to the "larger image").

    ------------------------------------------------

    Also, does this happen only on this site?

    Does the behavior happen only on this site?

    I don't feel like it's something with the settings though.

    To be honest, I'm not entirely sure.

    Do you have any firewalls turned on?

    On that web page, right click the "View larger image" link and select "Open Link in New Tab".
    Does that show the image?
    I'm wondering if the problem only exists in Pop-up windows.
