... PF has been hacked a few times before IIRC ...
Might be just be my bad memory but this forum has never actually been hacked  :eh?:
Maybe you’re thinking of another one.
There was one occasion in the past when someone with a grudge against a certain member got access to that person’s account and deleted some of their posts. As far as I can tell it was because the password had been either knowingly shared or it was used on multiple other sites, one of which had a data breach. It was not because PF itself was hacked.

Good to know!

Hi Sylvia, I chose the wrong wording, I should have written 'forum down due to infection with malware or similar'...
At least that is how I remember it... Or am I wrong on that as well?

Nope, never had an issue with malware either.  :P
Maybe you’re thinking of Playmoboard?
That went down a few times, if I recall.
And after the last time it just stayed down.  ;)

No, it was much more recently, a few years ago, so certainly not Playmoboard.  ;)
How did I then get that idea...  ???
I´m pretty sure my anti-virus/-malware & such went nuts a few times (in the past) when visiting Playmofriends or paricular threads / topics, maybe it´s that and I assumed the whole forum got infected...  :eh?:

Thanks, Tahra! I finally got around to apply the fix and can now see your pics (and Lufty's) without changing browser! :apple: :cheerlead:

Thanks for the advice, tahra. Pictures in The Process failed to appear for me yesterday, both in Chrome and Samsung Internet browser (the latter stopped working with eBay a few months ago too) on my Samsung (Android) tablet.

I'm posting this in case anyone else is having difficulties.

I tried all the suggestions given, but couldn't locate any reference to allowing mixed or insecure content. I looked in Settings, tried the Desktop site, allowed Automatic Downloads, all to no avail.

So I am now using Firefox, which works fine!

My tabby is basically useless... can't get it to update, can't access the store.. no idea :(
(mind you I got it in 2012..)

Odd... I never looked before or after it, since I usually use Firefox too.. though it may be a matter of time until it happens too. I still don't understand how a silent failure (kinda, because IT WAS NOT a fail if left alone - it was http, but not a fail) is a positive thing. Or errors from the stupid blind replacement of http with https.
(end rant)
