    Is it just this single picture which does not display on your FF?

    Anyway, check if you've allowed images to be loaded in 'Content'
    preferences (see Tools>Options).

    Hmm, works fine for me with FF 1.5.0.2.

    Under Tools, Options, Content, do you have Load Images checked?

    Good morning Melchert, I see you beat me to the draw!

    Guess I don't type fast enough until I've had a couple cups of coffee. :-)

    It's a lousy picture anyway.

    I type with two fingers and a thumb, so not really fast. My kids use
    them all and type over 150 strokes a minute; I'll settle for an average
    of 40 strikes and 3 misses.... 8-)

    Well, I use 8 fingers, and one thumb. The left thumb has no assignment
    in 'touch typing'. Now if I could even learn that the shift key on
    electronic keyboards is NOT ballistic... sigh.
    Watching my niece type is a strange experience. She types about 140
    words per minute (really!). She puts her fingers on the keyboard, and
    words appear. I never see her finger move. Amazing!

    you're supposed to use all 10 digits. The 8 fingers are for the
    letters, numbers, shift, ctrl and alt keys. Only the two thumbs are
    used for the spacebar.

    A True typist: If you're typing a word and the word ends on a letter
    with the right hand, then you're supposed to use your left thumb for
    the spacebar.

    A non-true typist: if you're right handed, then you'll always use your
    right thumb for the spacebar. A hunt and pecker will use whatever is
    convenient

    I was taught to type in 1959. We had old Royal and Underwood manual
    typewriters. We were taught to use the right thumb only. Keyboards
    back then didn't have any contrl or alt keys. Grin.

    You only preceded me by a couple a years. And I don't mind the added
    ALT and ESC and CTRL keys, I just object to how they have moved around
    the keyboard over the years. Geez. ASDF...JKL; Hello? It works because
    it DOES NOT CHANGE! Sheesh. Every time I buy a new computer it comes
    with a different keyboard. Not vastly different, just, well, it's those
    tiny "improvements" that MAKE ME FREAKING CRAZY!

    Umm, does anyone out there actually use the WINDOWS key on a regular
    basis? Get rid of that one and the CTRL keys get back to where they
    should be, and were, on a PC keyboard of 15 years ago.

    It would be more terrible to NOT be an old, curmudgeonly, touch typist!
    I mean, hey, the only other option is ... uh ... to not be at all!

    It's funny, I remember when my mother made me go to summer school, not
    because I needed to, just because I was going into the 7th grade and,
    WOW! ... the demands of academia would be so severe. Oooo!

    I took touch typing and a class on "how to study." No recollection of
    the actual title of the class. That was back about 1962. Both have
    served me well. Even though Mom (let alone me!) could never have
    envisioned personal computers back then, or how any of that would apply
    later on. But, I now bang away at about 100 words per minute. So that's
    helpful. Not sure about the anal-retentiveness and compulsive
    organization tendencies though. Fortunately, Dad's sense of the absurd
    seems to have stuck with me so I'm only mildly conflicted and, at this
    age, none of it seems bothersome at all. And my wife recently told me to
    go buy another guitar. Hey, how much can a guy ask for? ;-)

    1952 for me, and I had one of those nifty Underwoods, which had an
    amazingly light touch. I'm ashamed to say that I never learned the top
    row of keys, but I could hit 120 on a good day. Haven't gone over 80 in
    the last couple of decades, though. Fastest typist I knew was a
    champion baton twirler.

    Every once in a while I snicker when I remember that I've got most of

    My main problem is with the shift key. One the old manual typewriters,
    you banged the shift key, and then hit the letter key while the carriage
    moved (up or down depending on manufacturer), and I have NEVER gotten
    used to having to HOLD the damn thing down. Seems a slight 'hold' could
    be put on the shift key to accommodate us old dogs that just don't seem
    to be able to reprogram that reflex. As for moving keys around, I
    worked in IT for 40 years, and daily used half a dozen different types
    of keyboard. Never was much of a problem after a while as I could
    determine which type keyboard I was on by the feel. Funny I could do
    that that, but never have gotten used to the 'non-ballistic' shift key.

    Even though I worked with keyboards from 1968 to 2003, I NEVER admitted
    to being a touch typist on any application, and kept it a complete
    secret while in the Air Force. My idea of Hell is to sit at a keyboard
    doing typing, or data entry for 8 hours a day! I was warned by a friend
    that if I admitted to being able to type, that is what I would do for 4
    years. I saw others who fell to that fate, and was grateful for the
    advice. While I spent most of my time in front of a keyboard, my
    entries were brief commands, not continuous data entry, or text entry.
