"I'm unable to see any photos or thumbnails now.
Until a few days ago FB was working fine using google DNS, I've also tried OPEN DNS and get the same result of no thumbs.
I tried ultrasurf, hotspot shield (with annoying popups and slow loading times) and I get some thumbs showing and other times the same problem.

Does anyone know how to get these thumbs to show?"
