recently Ive noticed that instead of an image in a posting, I sometimes (now the majority of time) just get the phrase 'attached image' in bold at the end of the post but no image. I am using a different Win 10 machine but it has no hardware deficiencies. Is there a setting I've missed?

Frank,

I see that only when I use the drag and drop upload. Hit the F5 key to refresh the screen and the images will show up.

It's not when I upload, it's when I'm reading a post. In a long post with pics I may see a few of them but most just have the attached image as if its a place holder. refresh doesn't help and neither does clicking the attached image note. I haven't figured out how to view them . Maybe its a default setting on this machine but I haven't figured it out yet.

As an example, on http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/alfa-romeo-montreal/381777-spot-monti-sale.html I see pics in post #1 but no pics in the thread past #1.

OK it took a little while to troubleshoot. Turns out making Duckduckgo as the default search engine in firefox 57.0 (quantum) was the culprit. If I was a conspiracy guy I would claim that google doesn't want me to search with a search engine that doesn't track you. Or maybe it's the BB?

look it up its good, maybe not as flashy an interface but the only engine that does not track you, use your search habits or sell your data. supposedly.
