You have diagnosed the problem perfectly.
I had, indeed, limited accepting images from the current or originating 
server.  When I changed it to accept all images, the problem vanishes
in both mozilla and galeon.

Mozilla and galeon have this in slightly different places:
  Preferences | Privacy | Images;  Choose "Accept all images"
  Preferences | Filtering | Image Loading;  Choose "Always load"

Thank you, Matthew Saltzman, and the others who responded.
