Am at Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; WOW64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Thunderbird/52.1.0.

This AM, all remote content has disappeared...my mail displays as text with hyperlinks bolded (those work if clicked). I updated to this level 5/2 and have had remote content with this level since then until this AM.

Under Options, Privacy, Mail Content, "allow remote content" box was unclicked. I clicked it and restarted Tbird, but still no remote content. I went into the Config Editor and found that mailnews.message_display.disable_remote_image was set false so that was OK.

Really annoying...like being catapulted back to a dial-up modem data stream.

Help, please?

Still no answer. FWIW, I tried reinstall, cold reboots, situation persists. Would someone please help...Tbird is all but unfeatured and useless without remote content! Is there more diag that would help and I should post?

ANSWER: In desperation, I went through everything...and found that under View, Message Body As...had somehow been changed from Original HTML to Simple HTML. Changing it back restored what I called remote content.
