I spent a good hour or two today trying to figure out why images were not appearing in an ExpressionEngine publish page, file browser and the front end.
It turned out it was my Firefox browser that was running the Adblock extension for blocking ads and this was blocking display of images inside the control panel, plus blocking some of the front end out out because I’d named some CSS class and filenames were on Adblock’s “block” list.
If this happens to you check CSS classes/ID’s and filenames to make sure they don’t clash with any ad blocking software you use. Typically using names such as “ads”, “advertising”, “banner” and so on may give you this problem.
A pain in the rear but an easy one to fix!
