    Thanks to @landowner for posting this and it appears to work though LZ can't take any responsibility for it.

    If you're using Google Chrome, go to the three dots on the top right side of the screen and click them. A drop down should appear. Hover your mouse over "More Tools," and when the next drop down appears, click on extensions. Go to the link towards the bottom that says "Get more extensions." In the search box, type "Photobucket Fix," and hit enter. Click the install button and once it's done, you should be able to see photobucket pictures again.

    For FireFox users, click on the three bars on the right side of the screen, then click on add ons. Click search for "photobucket hotlink" and click install. Same result

    Photobucket pic's which are blurred like some of mine are due to the users accounts on photobucket going over their free limit of hosting. My free option allows 25meg of pic's hosted on PH and displayed on forums. When yer go over that without upgrading yer account to a paid option, PH blur your pic's. Each month the limit count will reset, then pic's become blurred when yer go over the limit again. Theres no fix for it as a viewer. I'm still moving my pic's to imgur.

    Yes have been with Imgur for the last 3.5 years as I knew that PB were going to mess people about, I used to use Tinypic for my third party hosting but PB bought them out and closed it down now 98% of my threads & how to's are useless if will or would take me the best part of 3 months or more to correct it.

    I moved to imgur when you suggested it before. Their web site is much faster and easier to use than photobucket. I have been moving pic's over for a while now. Taken a lot of time. I plan to finish the task early next year.
