in Firefox and Google Chrome ...

Give it a go.

Some direct links to get extensions for Firefox and Chrome browsers to delete the PB ransom demand and restore the original image:

Firefox extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... src=search

Chrome extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... jjgj?hl=en

This is a painless exercise, it simply adds an extension to the browser and doesn't alter anything in your account or computer registry. Thanks to Mark J Davies for the heads up to this fix.

I'm not sure I understand. Does the extension make it so that only Firefox users can see photos linked from Photobucket, or does the extension make it so that if you use Firefox with the extension to post the Photobucket links, everyone will be able to see them? I use Firefox on my home computers, but Internet Explorer at work. I have a lot of pictures on Photobucket that are linked to WIX.

Installing the extension means only that you can see the linked photos in Firefox. It has nothing to do with posting links, it's just a workaround to be able to see the existing linked photos.

HTH,
