Very often Firefox will load images that are cut oddly like the one attached. Refreshing doesn't fix it. Chromium doesn't do it. How could I fix this? Bad Firefox image

Firefox version? – gajdipajti Jan 13 '12 at 9:20
Don't take umbrage at this, but are you by any chance using a wireless access point you shouldn't be? Or someone else's proxy server? I ask because flipping, replacing, modifying etc. images in web pages is a prank occasionally used by people who notice that someone is using their bandwidth without permission. That probably wouldn't explain the difference between browsers, though. – detly Jan 31 '12 at 12:51
force firefox to use ftp! :) – Alvar Feb 6 '12 at 16:02

What kind of internet connction are You using? Is it fast enough? Sometimes when internet connection is a bit slow images are in poor quality or distorted. It also may be due to internet LAN card settings.
