Ive had an issue with my Kindle Fire lately, where pictures on various forums won't show up. Some of the pictures show, but most of them just show up as small hue squares with a question mark in them. Viewed from my Pc, the pics will show. Is there a setting I can change to fix this?

The same thing happens with my iMac. Either the photo has been pulled or the format isn't compatible with the software. I suppose you could read your users guide and see if it has any settings you might try, but I won't read it for you and then tell you what it says.

Unfortunately, the user's guide was no help. It doesn't really go into that much detail.

Same problem. Thing is, some of the picture posts not showing now used to show ok on the fire. The problem is a fairly recent occurrance.

The funny thing is that when a post with a non-viewable photobucket image is quoted and the image shows up as a photobucket url, a click on the link will show the image without difficulty.

I have the same problem. Anyone find a solution?

I have the same problem... Chatted with amazon customer support for over an hour... They ended pretty much saying it is user error... I doubt I am the only one having this problem?

One good thing is that Amazon lets me track this discussion, so I get a new message with each post. Very helpful I guess except there's never a solution. Its been a year or so--may have to get me an i-pad.

Well today at this time it works fine, after months of not working... After telling amazon and photobucket about the issue it is now fixed... Guess I will never know which it was?

Post up if yours works now to? I am interested to find out...

My kindle is not fixed. Still a piece of crap.

view the web pages your having the trouble with, go back and forth between mobile and desktop, and click sync several times while viewing the different web pages in both modes...

Also try a hard reset along with what i posted above.

Not working for me. I have a first gen kindle fire. Based on a little research the newer ones are updating, but the old ones are on an old os/browser I presume because thetly are being phased out. Makes sense from a business perspective I guess but I haven't had this all that long. I know this thing was cheap but its aggravating to have a POS. I need to buy an Ipad unless i can figure out how to jailbreak this thing.

Yea I have a gen 1 as well. doing what I did above seemed to work for the majority of the websites/ forums I frequent but there are still a few that give the the little blue question mark. Oh well guess there is not much we can do. No clue why doing what I did worked for some websites but not all?

I have had the same problem. I solved it by going into More..., then Applications, then Silk Browser, then checking the Load Images checkbox which somehow got unchecked. Hope this helps.

Give this a try...
Pull down from top, then select More... to access Settings.
Select Applications
Select Silk Browser
Under Advanced select Manage Advanced Setting
Select the check box by Load Images

Hope this fixes it for you :)
