If you’ve been using the Firefox addon Access Flickr, which allows you view Flickr photos while being behind the Great Firewall, you may have noticed some photos display just fine and some wont at all.

Since posting last june about the fantastic solution for us shutterbugs in China, Flickr has added a new “farm” for photo storage – essentially a different sub-domain of the Flickr site. Unless you are using the latest version of the addon, currently 1.9, you will have sporadic broken images in your browser.

To fix this, simply upgrade to Access Flickr 1.9 or higher.

Not using Firefox yet? Why the heck not? Download it free.

An interesting article with the addon’s creator, Hamid Saber, and Global Voices
