Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

For some reason, images from Imgur as well as in third-party advertisements (not directly related to Stack Exchange) are not loading. I only get alternate text in its place. I have no problems with any other sites and images that are part of the Stack Exchange interface as well as ads related to SE are loading normally. Bypassing and clearing the cache in the browser does not help, and it is noticeable on all SE sites Is there a problem?

This happens to me because Imgur is blocked from our network. – user215114 Sep 11 '13 at 21:47

I can see images from imgur just fine:

It could be a temporary issue from your location.

OK, this looks like a DNS server problem. Down or Not says that it is up, but my browser says "server not found" on trying to access – bwDraco Jun 3 '11 at 20:37
The images are now loading normally. redirects to, an information page on Stack Exchange's Imgur account. Thanks. – bwDraco Jun 3 '11 at 21:19

It happens to me as well when I'm at a client's premises. I don't care too much about the ads but not being able to upload to imgur is quite a pain in the neck. This LAN is actually severely crippled.

Another possibility is that you might be running add block plus. But this is easy to diagnose since you can temporarily disable this FF/Chrome extension or may be use IE.
