hi all

At the bottom of this page you can link to an avatar that is stored somewhere else on the web. Most people store these on their PN provided webspace. Though I would suggest checking out the forum rules as there are some guidelines on avatars.

hi all

No, its just a simple image in the page. If you are viewing secure (SSL) pages (check the url in the address bar to see if its http:// or https:// if you are viewing via https it sometimes causes an issue as the images are still using a non secure link (its not a security problem though).

What broswer are you using?

hi all

I suspect you need to change the firefox settings. If you go into Tools/Options/Content (the globe symbol) and deselect Load Images for the originating web site only this may solve the problem. Don't forget to refresh the page afterwards
