      For Kathleen and everyone:
      one of the possibilities of the occurrence of this problem is:
      when u right click on an image and press “B” which is the shortcut to block the images from a site….instead of pressing “V” the shortcut of saving an image,
      when this happens f.fox warns u with an alert that u blocked the images…
      simply click “Undo” …
      thats all. :)

    Just make sure You or your dad have not blocked images from facebook accidently…if u r a firefox user,
    tool menu >Options> conent> load images automatically>expeptions
    now check whether there is facebook.com in the list
    if it’s there, just remove it by clicking remove site..and try again loading facebook.com
    I am not sure abt the other browsers, but it will be kind of same…
    i have no idea how did u hide the images and like u..so it’s just a guess..hope it works

    Kathleen,

    what Facebook icons do you mean? Where were they?

    • Kathleen

      The FB icons in the chat box that are circles and half moons, the icons on the status bar to the left of Status, Photo, Link, Video. The icons on the upper left of the page for Home, Friend Requests, Messages, Notifications. The Box with the “X” in it to the right of a status comment that you can click on to Hide the Post. My Dad had my laptop and I have noooo idea what he did.

      Kathleen,

      I assume that your dad only had access to your computer and browser, not to your Facebook account itself. It sounds like something is wrong with your browser.

      What browser are you using? Did you try to empty browser cache, remove cookies, reboot the computer, and eventually use another browser?

      Using another browser or letting someone else log into their Facebook account on your computer will also reveal whether something is wrong with your computer, browser, or Facebook profile.
