Getting firefox to show broken image placeholders
« on: December 07, 2010, 11:08:30 pm »
This is a problem plaguing a good number of people who like the placeholders.

First, you need to make sure that firefox is configured properly:

type in "about:config" into the address bar.
then go to the page, and type "images" into the filter bar.
Make sure that browser.display.show_image_placeholders (or something like that) is set to true. It should be in the top 10 items on that list.

If that fails to fix the problem, navigate to:

‘%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<username>\chrome’, or, if you’re on a domain, it may be found in ‘%appdata%\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<username>\chrome’

And then open up userContent-example.css and add in:

Code: [Select]
/*
 * Show image placeholders
 */
@-moz-document url-prefix(http), url-prefix(file) {
  img:-moz-broken{
    -moz-force-broken-image-icon:1;
    width:24px;
    height:24px;
  }
}

Save it, and then rename it to userContent.css

Now just restart firefox, and it should work!

You gotta love all that about:config stuff. There's so many odd/neat settings floating around in there.  (:
