    Since some weeks several URLs that I browse and e-mails that I get from trusted sends appear to have blank panes where I expext a picture or other. This behaviour is only at one account on my Vista driven PC. E.g. if I forward such an e-mail to another accout on this PC the panes contain the pictures that are blanc under my own account. Apparently I have set some switch to accomplish this, not knowing what effect it had. I’ve been searchin through many securite settings under my own account, but nowhere I can find which setting could be the cause of disabling the visibility of pictures in e-mails or (parst of) frames or pages in URLs. I’m using Firefox 2.0 and Outlook 2007 (at both accounts). Who knows which switch I unpurposely set with the results described? TIA
