I noticed about a month ago that quite often in the latest version of Firefox (but not in Chrome) under Windows 11 usernames become distorted like this

enter image description here

Does anybody else see this or it is just me?

Later - following suggestions in comments, I looked into that user's page and there I see this:

    $\begingroup$ Hmm Dmitri Piontkovski's profile image shows up as text, for me on Firefox on Android, and in the image you give it's a cropped version of this you are seeing. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It looks like the user's profile picture is not being loaded, so you're instead setting the alt text for the image — or, a cropped portion of it, since the alt text is probably "username's profile picture". Perhaps you're using an ad blocker, or perhaps Firefox is aggressively filtering out certain images? $\endgroup$ Nov 23 at 21:55

    $\begingroup$ The user's profile picture is being pulled in from Facebook (graph.facebook.com/1852493471481940/picture?type=large), so it could be that Firefox is not liking the 3rd party image link? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @TheAmplitwist I am indeed using ABP but right now I switched it off completely and reloaded the page, with no avail. How to check Firefox about image filtering I don't know. $\endgroup$ Nov 24 at 4:59
  • $\begingroup$ Aha there is indeed evidence about image filtering, let me add this to the question $\endgroup$ Nov 24 at 5:02

Suggestions in the comments by David Roberts and The Amplitwist turned out to be correct. I switched out enhanced tracking protection, and that thing got replaced with a picture of the user. Still I am not removing the bug tag since when the protection is on, something less messy should appear I believe, no?

Besides, it does not look normal that in order for the page to load properly I should allow facebook to track my personal actions
