Just for anyone who is curious. I solved my problem, which was not a blogger problem it turns out but a Firefox browser problem . Yes, as many of you suggested I upgraded my Firefox browser from two something to three something. YES I had been ignoring their messages to upgrade and thus my pictures were not showing (to me only). And YES now that i have upgraded things seem to be working. I am shining my fingers against my sleeve. I am so proud of me. :) thank you all for your patience and help.
