Firefox Displays Partial Image, Then Blurred

Hello Experts,
Strange Issue ~
Some pictures / images are not displaying properly in Firefox, and I cannot seem to find why. If I check the image in Internet Explorer, they display fine. I've Googled around, but it's an issue that's tough to explain, but easy to show. (image attached - Firefox vs IE)

This doesn't happen with all images, not even a majority, just certain images from any page...

Thanks for your help!

You would have to give us the link to the page where the problem is.  The image isn't the problem.

I know the image itself isn't the problem. But I did add a link to an image with the issue, as shown in the screenshot...

It's not a problem from here in Firefox 7 which is why I though you had it on another page.

I cannot find why firefox does this. Left image is firefox 7, right is IE9. If I even right-click > Save Image As from Firefox, I get the 1/2 image. Totally strange. In IE, if I save the image, it's saved fine.

If I google anything, and go to images, the same mess appears. Most pics are OK, some random ones are 1/2-OK, 1/2-nothing. Again, only in FF - not IE.

I hope I'm making sense. I wouldnt post it on EE if it didnt confuse me a bit too.

Try starting Firefox without any add-ons and see if it still happens.  From http://news.cnet.com/8301-13880_3-10081925-68.html :

"To disable all of Firefox's add-ons, you have to open the browser in its Safe Mode (no relation to Windows' own Safe Mode) by clicking Start > All Programs > Mozilla Firefox > Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode). A quicker way is to press the Windows key (in XP, follow this by pressing R), type Firefox -safe-mode, and press Enter."
