    I'm also running Firefox ESR 52.9.0 on my decade old computer with Vista. It definitely appears to have a bearing on why I don't see any watermarks and all the PB hosted pics are clear for me also.

    Where's Jerry?

    Jerry hasn't posted in over 6 weeks (since 07-25-2019). I'm sure there's many of us who are wondering what's up with his sudden absence.
