Undoing "hide background image"

by hikergirl / November 3, 2008 4:57 AM PST

Windows XP Pro; HP e pc 40; Intel Celeron; FF w/SP3; IE6 (if I must); AVG FREE 7.5

This may be better answered by a female: By email, I get daily recipes from In trying to save some ink when printing a recipe, which comes up w/photo, I wanted to eliminate the photo. I clicked over the photo, right-clicked to "hide background image." So far, perfect.
The problem: I am not able to view ANY photos on any BHG recipe emails.
Right-clicking for "view background image" is not available. Also, I'm not able to scan through multiple slides of recipes in a category, with left & right arrows. The arrows are totally gone.
The site, so far, has not been able to help.

Is there any help here?

And the one detail you left out

And the one detail you left out is probably the most important here. What program (or website) are you using to access your email?

(NT) I use Yahoo!

Any extensions

Any extensions, because I'm not seeing any such option in the Yahoo web interface like you described, so I'm thinking it's probably to do with a Firefox extension you installed. Do you have AdBlock Plus installed by chance?

FF, yes; extensions - what are they?

There has been no previous problem until I hid the image.
I hope you aren't trying to create a problem.
I suspect the answer is very simple - just not apparent to me.
Please keep trying.

Problem solved!

Jimmy: I found the solution:

Tools>Options>under Content>Load Images Automatically, click Exceptions. Type in address you want to allow images (it lists the address of this particular company), click Allow>OK.

I have already notified the email's sender, so they won't fret any longer.

Some day I'll actually figure out what I'm doing.

Thanks again for trying.
