Hi, I looked more in depth and realized that the borders appeared when
zooming down (CTRL --). I set my browser back to "normal" zoom and the
borders desappeared .
I am sorry for the inconvenience, and very happy to have my firefox back
to a nice looking.

Merci Ricardo. I reset the zoom in Firefox BUT this did not remove the unwanted borders/outlines. Using zoom on my second ubuntu computer did NOT introduce the problem. Using zoom on my windows/Firefox computer did NOT introduce the problem. Tres bizarre.

Take off css styles using View-Page Style-No Style. The images are reproduced as I would expect. Three Jump-Images are surrounded by the usual purple jump border and three simple images are shown correctly with no borders.The error console, Tools-Error Console, shows no errors or warnings.
