I think I might have experienced this too. I did some reload clicks, and some shift-reload clicks, and they didn't help. Then I did a 'new circuit for this site' click and the problem went away. That is alas my only hint for now; I'll add more details if I hit it again.

I wonder if this is related to the subresources (including images) coming from Cloudflare.

cypherpunks: You have #24351. There is no need to vandalize yet another ticket, so I removed your comments here to get actual work done.

#32251 is a duplicate.

It seems one can see the problem on

https://pincong.rocks/ and
https://www.namecheap.com/ as well.

I'll ping our Cloudflare contacts so they can get that fixed.

https://www.shroomery.org/forums/ also does not show avatars, post icons, smileys and favicon. Picture thumbnails display/load fine but clicking to magnify/zoom fails.

I do not think it specifically CF hosting related, some other forums I frequent are definitely cloudflared and do work fine. Not sure if it's helpful, but apparently shroomery.org/forums/ uses files.shroomery.org for serving images (some, not all) and I get 403s when looking at the problem images in inspector>network>images

Attempted Safest, Safer and Standard security levels, used New Identity as well "(i) New Circuit" numerous times, no changes. also tried all manner of permissions given NoScript and HTTPS-E on/off and EASE on/off.

Some hint from the blog that may help:

Seems to be caused by "Accept" header, which now is "image/webp,*/*" instead of "*/*" in the previous versions (this changed in Firefox with introducting the webp images support). Some servers somehow don't like that and return 403 error instead of a image.
