Something changed and I don't know what. My background image is gone, as are my avatar graphics and icons under "featured hubs". I use Windows XP and alternate between IE8 and Firebox and the problem exists in both browsers. Any ideas on how to fix would be appreciated.
Maybe it was a burp in the system or something. I'm seeing everything on your profile page is working.
Look again, Linda. Eveything seems to be there. And welcome back! I was just thinking about you and here you are! :-)
I checked and do see a background image for your profile.
Are you still not seeing it?
I am seeing your images, too.
Perhaps we have an issue with image hosting, especially since some people stated they saw the image.
Do you recall what image you had set and do you know if it is currently showing as still set in your profile settings?
Hi All and thanks for the replies. I still can't see any of the avatars or the profile on my page in either browser. And, it's impossible to tell which background I have chosen because they all have a dark border around them as if they are they chosen one. I've tried selecting another background and saving the profile but nothing changes. Since some of you see my avatars and background, I am even more stuped. Is anyone real tech savy that might know whether this is a Windows, IE, or Firefox issue or a Hubpages issue? I could sure use some help.
With it being set and you not seeing it, but others are seeing it, it could be related to system resources on your end (RAM, CPU, etc.).
I am going to try to track down an XP machine so I can test using Firefox.
It looks like there may be a minor update for Firefox to 23.0.1, so I would suggest upgrading to that version, clearing your browser cache, and rebooting your computer.

If you still have problems, please let me know and I can try to help further.
I just tested in XP using Firefox 23.0.1 and was unable to reproduce the issue for neither @lrc7815 nor @psycheskinner.
I also tested in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera in Windows 8 and am seeing the background images there as well.
I set a picture that was pink with brown horses on it. Now it is gone and not show in my settings at all.
So I loaded something new, hopefully this one will stick.
Problem solved. I think I had corrpution in my user profile in Windows XP. I created a new profile and now everything is working as it should. Thanks to all of you for the time you spent trying to help me. You're the best!
Everything looks okay from here too. Whatever it was, maybe its fixed.
I think it's odd that I had a background image for some months and then it was gone. I guess I might have somehow done that accidentally,
I see this background image right now for your profile.
If there is an issue that you believe is a bug, it is best to leave the issue as it is until we can track down any potential problem.
Your changing the background, solved your immediate issue of one not being on your profile, but not having the example to refer to makes it difficult to see what could have been the potential issue as any problematic data would have been overwritten with the change.
As this issue stands at the moment, I cannot reproduce it and there is no information with which I can further research it.
Please let us know if you notice this issue again.
I am leaving this thread open in case any other authors experiences the same issue, that way we can document this potential problem so it can be addressed.

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.

I did a quick (not thorough) forum search to make sure this topic wasn't already created. Apologies if it has been.Anywho, I just wanted to announce my gratification with the new HP profile. I think it is a 400% improvement on the International Profile Look Scale (a scale I may or may...

For anyone who upgraded to Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 came with it and you may have noticed that you can enter links in your hubs through this browser.It still works in Firefox 25, but just a heads up!

Do we really have to change to the new design profile?I am fine with the simple one. What would happen if we don't change to it? And if we have to, how do you get a photo to be a background?
