There's a Reliant Fox down at 'the farm'. Runs, drives and is road legal. Red Top engine, so 40bhp and a published top speed of 80mph

This appeared on one of my Facebook groups I follow [not the ERF] but it's load, comment about the picture says it was taken at Sandbach a few years ago.

The original post works for me? Might be blocked by your work or something along those lines.

Thanks for the thought, but I'm now retired so the buck stops with me 🙂
I had thought about the Mozilla Firefox PC browser blocking it, but they normally announce when they are 'helping' me from visiting an inapproprite link 🙂
I wondered if there was some way to engineer access without asking the poster, but when I tried to examine the link in 'Page Info' it did not look viable.

Omitting the leading HTTPS, the link destination reads '://scontent.fbrs4-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.6435-9/166970452_1821724807988645_9119371825507198847_n.jpg?_nc_cat=109&ccb=1-3&_nc_sid=8bfeb9&_nc_ohc=FO0stuK5uLAAX-0HHDb&_nc_ht=scontent.fbrs4-1.fna&oh=2e8d75d60f0576ecf79117f1daeaa412&oe=608BE260'

I decided to 'ask the question' in case I wasn't the only one affected.

What browser are you using?  On a PC, or Tablet, or Mobile?

Regards.

Works for me in Firefox. It's just a Facebook image link. And it also works in a private window, so shouldn't be related to being signed in or not.

... 1st was a copied link from the Facebook page, so don't know why you couldn't see it. 

Just for additional clarity, if anyone values it, clicking the link brought up a black rectangle with a 'broken file' icon in the centre and a 'closure' X in the top right corner.

No I don't know why I couldn't see it either, but while I have access, and an ID, to Facebook I don't use it very much at all. In general I can see images other people insert in their Facebook posts, so I'm quite happy to regard this incident as a anomaly individual to my PC and software setup. Just for completeness I checked my Firefox installation, and found it up-to-date. While the 64 bit Win 10 did have some updates available, installing them has made no difference.

I did not stay silent so my 'social' conscience is clear, so I'm no longer concerned at all. Thankyou all for your responses, which show no major or common problem exists.

Regards

David, I had/have the same problem. Not only here, but also on some other threads / forums. Always with FB links. The easy workaround is to right click and chose 'view image'. Only downside is you can't go back to the previous window (i.e. the thread) afterwards. Only thing I can think of that could cause this is because FireFox opens FB in a container tab.

These posts prompted me to give a bit of an update. The Ant is nice and simple to work on, makes a Series Land Rover look complex! I have now changed all the brake slave cylinders plus master, same for the clutch and also freed off/cleaned/greased the adjusters on the brakes. This picture of the clutch and brake masters show just how simple it is in the cab

The chassis is in pretty good condition when you compare it to the same age Land Rover (1986) with only the center cross being corroded. This is as a result of a bad design where the bottom plate holds water. I have chopped out the plate here ready to be replaced and you can see the corrosion better

I have welded new metal in and sealed it all up to try and stop it happening again although this will live indoors from now on so I do not see that becoming an issue. The other rust areas were the bottoms of the mudguards, I cut out the rotten metal and welded in new (after I sorted the MIG welder issue!) Not perfect but will be presentable enough after they have some paint

I have now finished cleaning up the chassis and cab supports ready for paint plus started work on the drop sides and wheels, once paint goes on I I think I will have started to turn the corner a bit
