    A few days ago I noticed I could no longer see my own profile background image on my profile page. I am also no longer able to see the profile page backgrounds of other hubbers either. This issue does not appear to be a problem if I use Internet Explorer.

      Yikes, sorry about this! Thanks for reporting the issue. I'll let Matt step in to report this bug properly, as he's the pro at doing so, but our office will be up and running after the holiday weekend starting tomorrow and we shall hopefully have the issue resolved soon thereafter.

      Thanks for taking the time to report this.
      I, indeed, see no background images on Hubs in Firefox 21 in Windows 7.
      Chrome, Opera, and Internet Explorer do not appear to be affected.
      I have forwarded this to our engineering team to be addressed.

      It appears that the most recent version of Firefox (21.0) included some changes that conflicts with part of our code. We'll deploy a fix for this soon.

      To our knowledge, this only affects Firefox 21.

      I just tested using Firefox 21 and Windows 7 and did see background images for profiles.

      You may need to refresh your browser and/or clear cached content in order to see the images in your browser.

    I'm on an older version of FF on a Mac and can see backgrounds fine.

    I have reported it to Firefox as I noticed it too. I thought it was my pc but it seems there are a few of us using Firefox that are affected. Hopefully they will read my complaint and sort it out soon.

    It seems to be a browser problem. I am seeing it fine on chrome but I see a white background on firefox.

    Agreed. Internet Explorer shows the background on the profile page but Firefox does not show anything but a white background. It is a Firefox glitch.
