    "View background image" is disabled on all websites


    I don't know what I did, but all the background images on all websites (including this one) are gone...if I right click on the web page, the selection "View Background image" is greyed out, disabled. Does anyone know how to reset the background images on websites so they appear again...I would really really appreciate it.

    I just got a new computer with Windows 8, I use Firefox. If I open these websites with IE, the background images are there. So what did I do to my Firefox settings?

    I have spent over 4 hours searching through the control panel, tools, Firefox itself, and I can't find a solution.

    No that didn't help, the only image that is not loading on all websites are the background images. I still can't find how to allow the background images to appear.

    Someone will probably come up with an answer.
    Hang in there.

    Fixed the problem...


    I went to Mozilla help and asked them what to do... they said just reset Firefox to factory defaults. Since I could not find where I messed up the settings, this worked. Thanks to all who offered help.
