If you use Chrome for your browser there is a fix for the Photobucket problem. It is a third party extension I found reading on a Lotus 7 site :
Some MIT guys came up with it and it's free.

You have to install the extension in the Chrome browser to see it, you will be able to see everyone's Photobucket photo's again, if they haven't deleted their accounts or removed their pictures.
The link I posted is to the extension. just click on "Added to Chrome" and it will be installed on your Chrome browser Then clear your browser cache and you'll be able to view Photobucket pictures again, at least until Photobucket figures a way to stop it.
This only works with the Chrome browser, if you use a different browser, you're out of luck.
