Firefox beta 2 and images

A post i made in reply to a forum post on

Does anyone else have difficulty seeing images embedded in posts (Image Control tool) while browsing with Firefox (I’m using v1.5 beta 2)? Since switching to Firefox from IE, I’ve lost this ability. I see only the links to control the image, but not the image itself. Perhaps it’s extension or security-setting related?

well it seems to work for me with FF v1.5 beta 2, if you check in the options, go to content, and and check load images is checked and from originating site is not checked, you can probably add an exception for dpreview if you like the setting as it is. (I can’t get an exception to work) image of the option screen follows (for testing) ff options BTW FF v1.5 beta 2 is the beta of FF 1.5, as new as it gets would be the nightly builds, why use it, firefox is free, the developers need feedback so they can fix things, crash data is reported to the dev team and used to fix problems. if people don’t test then it wont get built or be stable. BTW FF crashed whilst writing this post, session saver brought the page back and the unfinished post, cool.
