You should generally be clicking on the site logo rather than hitting the reload button.

You can try this GreaseMonkey script. I haven't tried it myself, but it was recently updated, so it should updated a year ago, but it will still work with Google's current results page, although instant search needs to be off.

The most obvious things to look for are something blocking the URL of the photos. I've done a quick check on my profile and they are of the form: http://fbcdn-profile-a.akamaihd.net/hprofile-ak-snc4/....

Ghostery is a (but certainly not the only) browser extension that alerts you to certain trackers/companies as you surf online. Ghostery tracks over 1,400 trackers and gives you a roll-call of the ad networks, behavioral data providers, web publishers, and other companies interested in your activity. I use it both to block tracking and as an alert ...

All the other answers are great. I personally use the Google Mail Checker Plus extension for Chrome and it works just fine. Only for the sake of completion, there is another option (which needs some more tackling): using different browser profiles in different windows.
