Maybe somebody can help me with this.

Sometimes I am unable to view pictues in the posts. Is there something I need to do in my profile to allow me to see all types of pictues, or do you think it is on my computer?

Do have pop-ups disabled in your browser setting? Sometimes folks embed pictures (which you should see) and other times they put in an external link to a picture.

Here is an embedded picture:

Can you see both/either?

Pete,
Thanks for the quick response, and I can see both of your pics. One of the more recent posts that I cannot see the pics for is the SoHo report thread by CinciVol. When I click the links, it opens up a new window, but it just stays blank. Sometimes for embedded pics all I see is the [IMG] brackets but no picture.

It is probably some sort of firewall feature I have set on my computer.

You are correct...it is a firewall feature. What browser do you use?

when I used to work in an office environment, I could never see embedded pics on the work computer, but always at home. it was their firewall.
