Firefox Broke Images Fix

So I’ve been using Firefox for a couple years now and the one thing that I hated about it was how broken images were not being displayed.

As a webmaster I need to know when there are broke images on my websites and it has been a pain switching to IE and then to Firefox just to see if there are broken images.

Well after some searching I found a solution!

In order to see broken images with Firefox you need to do two things:

First install the Greasemonkey addon.

Allows you to customize the way a webpage displays using small bits of JavaScript.

Hundreds of scripts, for a wide variety of popular sites, are already available at

You can write your own scripts, too. Check out to get started.

Now install the Broke Image Placeholder code from

That’s it!

Now as long as you have show_image_placeholders set to true, which by default it is. You should now see broke images! Yay!

Now to find those cookie stuffers!
