html image upload problems. Need help!

Ok. I tried my hardest to find out myself before coming here, but I just cannot figure this out. I have an ebay store, and am a member of many forums. I upload photos all the time. I have no issues with my photos uploading, but anytime I try to upload my photos on craigslist they all show up as a small box with a green triangle, a red circle, and a blue square inside. This has been going on for months. I look through craigslist, and it's flooded with uplaoded images daily from photobucket, so I know it's not craigslist. I'm using photobucket. When I generate my links, the very first option listed on photobucket is "HTML images for ebay, craigslist etc.". "Craigslist" is highlighted. It's meant for craigslist. They have a partnership. Yet the photos never work! In the end I'm always forced to just use direct links. This is really getting on my nerves, and no one has ever seemed to cover it on any forum, anywhere in the world. I'm good with computers, if anyone can try to help me through this.

I'm running Vista with SP1, and SP2 installed, all updates installed, and current java. I've cleared my cache, checked my internet settings, and everything seems to look ok to the naked eye. Any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated. Regards
