I recently discovered that I was not receiving attachments that people were sending me via Gmail when I used Internet Explorer or Firefox (they were working fine on my mobile, and also using Chrome). I finally figured out that my security settings had been changed, to disallow images. Once I restored the default setting, everything went back to normal.
In both Firefox and Internet Explorer, there is a little lock icon at the bottom of the screen. If your images are not displaying correctly, you may need to adjust the settings in one or both browsers. As long as you have your anti-virus software and firewall updated, and assuming you are not dealing with unusual circumstances, you may want to just use the default settings.
I'm still trying to verify which of my updates changed my settings. I think it's possible they were changed when I downloaded Google Call on the 25th.
