FireFox now blocking Avatars??

I recently updated FireFox, V53.03, and now just on this forum, I cannot see any users avatars including my own. Just a blank spot in the screen. I went onto IE and they show up there. Not sure what is going on there, but kindoff irritating to see all those blank spots??

OK so I have narrowed this down. It is only happening when Ublock is running. Once I turn Ublock off the avatars show up. Then everything slows down while all the crap loads now.
Still, no other sites am I seeing this issue on, and this just started recently.

Thanks for pointing it out. I thought it's the forum that's blocking pictures and stuffs. After reading your post I switch to "Chrome" and all avatars and pictures appears.

Same problem with IE11. I tried adding the forum to the popup blocker's exemptions from being blocked but it made no difference. Avatars are still blocked, and the only way I can post is by using the Advanced mode but without being able to use any of the Advanced features. Further, the Search box has disappeared. I've tried changing options in my User CP and that doesn't help with any of these problems.

I just updated to FF53.03, it's working fine as is IE11, avatars are visible and all features are working as far as I can tell. Some elements of AdBlock Plus and other ad blockers have caused issues on another Vertical Scope forum I use.

Weird - Rav4World runs slowly but fully featured on my laptop with IE11 but only partially on my desktop, also with IE11. Can't locate any differences in settings between the two computers.

I'm running Win7 on my main desktop if that makes any difference, have Win10 on another desktop and a laptop, but I seldom (don't recollect ever actually ) use those for forum access.

I've been running Firefox with UBlock for a long time now. When Firefox recently updated automatically, I didn't like the appearance of the new version. So I rolled it back to version 50.1.0 and it's so much better. I also disabled auto update so I can decide when and if I want to update. This is on my desktop and laptop running Win10, as well as my other laptop running Win7.

Help RAV4World members help you by providing your car's operating location in your profile page. Climate can cause a RAV4 in Dallas Wisconsin to experience a different set of issues when compared to the same model in Dallas Texas.

I'm running Win.7 and IE11 on my desktop, still am having format and procedure problems with this forum. Running Win.10 and IE11 on my laptop - no such problems with the forum but it access is slow, both in initial access. and with threads and posts.

If you want the forum to load fast in Firefox, try installing "Privacy Badger" and disabling uBlock Origin.
I haven't had any issues with missing avatars with this configuration.

Here's a link for the Privacy Badger plug-in...
