My little gravar-icon in the status-bar and many other icons are no longer present.

I tried to open the gravar-link directly, to no avail.

Pinging www.gravatar.com:

while pinging stackoverflow.com:

I am : which is in .at connected via a hotspot.

I can wget my gravatar picture. But pasting the same link into FF 27 just waits.

All this I encounter since ~6 hours.

In the past at least ~a week ago, there were never such problems in the same config.

    I can't repro this on IE11 or FF. Do you see errors in the devconsole? In which part of the world are you? – rene Mar 1 '14 at 18:12

    No such problems here either. Your gravatar loads just fine for me. downforeveryoneorjustme also thinks the gravatar server is up and running. – Martijn Pieters Mar 1 '14 at 18:16
  • @Oded: I can ping it. But I do not get any link of it to open in my browser. – false Mar 1 '14 at 18:28
  • I'm being routed to the same IP. Are you sure your virusscanner or something like that isn't bugging you? – rene Mar 1 '14 at 18:30

  • Ubuntu doesn't need virusscanners? :-) – rene Mar 1 '14 at 18:43
  • @rene: I do not know where or not it needs one, but at least there is none. – false Mar 1 '14 at 18:53
  • Can you use Chrome? Start FF without plugins? – rene Mar 1 '14 at 18:55
  • @rene: I can read with SIII's browser everything. It seems to be specific to FF27 + hotspot etc. Some h's before I was directly connected with FF27 - no problem there. – false Mar 2 '14 at 12:40

Solved. It probably was some kind of caching problem.

I effectively changed the way of connecting (fixed vs. mobile) while still running the same FF27 - and having open some pages of SO. This caused Then FF did to no longer load some pictures via gravatar.
