I found this on another forum, so can't claim credit. I use Firefox as a browser and can verify that this fix works. I can now see all the images that were formerly blocked by Photobucket. Haven't tried the Chrome fix, but I have no reason to think it won't work.

If you're using Google Chrome, go to the three dots on the right side of the screen and click them. A drop down should appear. Hover your mouse over "More Tools," and when the next drop down appears, click on extensions. Go to the link towards the bottom that says "Get more extensions." In the search box, type "Photobucket Fix," and hit enter. Click the install button and once it's done, you should be able to see photobucket pictures again.

For FireFox users, click on the three bars on the right side of the screen, then click on add ons. Click search for "photobucket hotlink" and click install. Same result.

It's certainly made forums far more useful again. However I suspect there will be something of an arms race between Photobucket and the developers of the fix. I hope not, but...
