Thanks, I just repeated that with my SP-hosted images, and that's exactly what I got, in about 10 trials. Puzzling; I would think the client-side app decides if an image will be displayed in browser window. My browser displays local images correctly whether they are JPG or jpg.
I can't see why it would make a difference (even knowing that the server OS is case-sensitive), but maybe the server folks need to associate both jpg and JPG with images.
Evidently the code library I used to upload all of the images to the cloud didn't recognize files with the extension JPG as a file type of 'image/jpeg'. So when I uploaded the images, the content-type header for files with the extension JPG wasn't set correctly.
Thus, the header being sent from the cloud file server isn't the correct content-type header. It's sending 'text/plain' instead of 'image/jpeg'. Evidently FireFox uses this to determine whether or not to render the image in the browser. IE8 doesn't (all images are rendered by the browser). Currently, there isn't a way to change the header type being sent once the file is on their server unless you re upload the file. RackSpace is supposedly working on a solution to this, but until the solution is released, things will most likely remain this way. They told me that "This feature is in development, but we don't have a public timeline for it."
The only way for me to fix it at this point is to re upload all of the images to the cloud server and I don't feel like this annoyance is worth the time or expense to re upload all of the images. Hopefully RackSpace will make a change soon on their end so that I can simply change the content type.

This is happening to me as well. Strangely, if I use Craig's computer it's fine -- only on mine cannot seem to load the images. We are both running XP with IE.
I'm guessing that this is probably related. What version of IE are you using?
Perhaps the version of IE you're using requires the content type to be set correctly and therefore isn't displaying the images. If this is the case, it might make this problem a higher priority and if a fix doesn't come soon from RackSpace so that I can simply change the content type header, I might have to upload all of the images again....ugh.
