I have the exact same problem with a very sudden onset! Although it's 2020 now, I have the fire hd 8. The show image option seems non existant..i can't locate it ANYWHERE! I did the factory reset and apparently,enough my kindle has a regular backup schedule and showed a recent backup...nothing was actually backed up. So...I lost a lot of content AND it did not bring back my ability to load images. The odd thing is,this is a problem usually occurring on shopping sites like hsn,acc etc the scrolling ads show up but merchandise images do not. I get a white square and place holder right after the images flash on the screen. I attempted to use a different browser, got firefox, it works but so slowly you'd think I'm on a landline dial up! I have the highest upload speeds available in my area and we use xbox with no speed issues,watch movies with no issues but loading images on the kindle?...nope! Can anyone help please?? Thanks!

terri, check the settings on your browser. Open up the browser, hit the menu button at the bottom of the screen, hit the Settings button, and try to enable your plug-ins and see if you are in mobile or desktop view. See if that makes a difference.

bold textGo your upper left hand corner when you are in SILK. Hit the three bars, the web page will slide to the right and the term web content will appear at the top. Select settings then select advanced. Then check the box to show images. And you're done.
