Default Unable to access jpg attachments

When I first joined the Forum I was able to view/download jpg attachments from its postings. Soon, however, I found I could no longer do it and that is the case to this day a year or so later. Can anyone advise me on this? I run W98SE + Firefox (latest v.)

Is this the only forum where this problem is happening for you?

Yes, as far as I know; just PriusOnline. In email...no problem. As to jpg's on other Websites...I haven't encountered many, it happens, so am not totally sure.

At PriusOnline, when I first joined I could see the jpg file when I clicked on it, as I remember. But now...nada. I don't even get the "hand" icon for the mouse-cursor when I position it over the filename.

I assume that you are logged into PriusOnline when you are trying to view the attachments, and not simply logged in as Guest? AFAIK the Guest account can only read posts but not attachments.

Yes, sorry; should have made that clear. I was logged on (Ken Herrick).

Towards the bottom of the thread, on the right it shows what you CAN and CANNOT do. Be sure it says you can download.

Example:
You cannot post new topics in this forum
You cannot reply to topics in this forum
You cannot edit your posts in this forum
You cannot delete your posts in this forum
You cannot vote in polls in this forum
You cannot attach files in this forum
You can download files in this forum

However, I noticed a guest CAN download files, so you should see the JPGs. Do you see Avatars?

Right...I do see "you can download..." etc. Also, if by Avatars you mean the little images at the left of the postings, yes, I see them OK.

I just checked again with a posting that included a jpg attachment. I see the filename, the size entry, etc., but I still cannot either click on the filename to view it or to download it. It's as if it's just another piece of text: no link action at all.

Default Types of images

Just so were sure we are talking about the same thing since there are multiple ways an image can be included in a post.

Option 1: URL Link
Toyota Prius - Front impact --this should be a link to external picture

Option 2: Inline image

-- should show image as part of post

Option 3: Attachment
-- Should be an image in the attachment box below

Let me know which one is not working and I will try to help you.

All 3 of the options you present show just "as advertised". (and #2...ouch!!). And I can copy, save, etc. the #3 image. But...when I go to, say, Technical|SunTek carbon-dyed tint, or Technical|hooking up the iPod, and look for their jpg images, I see none; the image-boxes are empty. That is the case for all others that I have tried to access.

Can you right click and select Save Picture As or Save Target As? I am suspecting for some reason your system isn't supporting those particular JPG formats.
