Hi @Val_B_1988. thanks for taking the time to report this!
If you click on the first link directly, can you access the image and is the image displayed in your web browser?
Does this problem also happen with another browser (which browser)?

Yes, I have access if I click first link. This problem isn't occurs in Vivaldi (1.12.955.38). Maybe the problem caused due the beta version. Later I shall try stable version.

Is this something happening for all images with that browser?

It seems I solved the problem. Error was caused by µBlock extension. I disabled the blocking of large media elements.

Aklapper renamed this task from No images can be loaded to No images can be loaded in MultimediaViewer due to µBlock browser extension.Oct 18 2017, 4:32 PM
Aklapper closed this task as Invalid.

Glad you found the reason!

Was this the default setting for uBlock? Maybe we should add a warning about that.

Also, did the behavior of uBlock change or you just did not have it enabled for the other browser version?
