Anyone having trouble with Memory Alpha images?

Sorry, I put this in Websites but thought I might get more of a response here.

Running a Mac (Lion) and using Firefox. Trying to load an image - any image - from Memory Alpha and it launches a window but nothing ever loads.

Are they having issues or can anyone else access them?

Yes, when I browse Memory Alpha in Chrome and click on a picture to enlarge it, the larger photo never loads. If I open the link in a new tab, though, I get the larger photo to load. Not sure what the problem is.

Safari is my primary browser, but I tried Firefox with all default settings and no plugins outside of whatever is included in the basic download. At first, the larger images refused to load. After shutting off the pop-up blocker in the Firefox prefs, the large images loaded.

(Running Mountain Lion, 10.8.x)
