Is this some kind of scam?

I don't use any 3rd party applications on Facebook but is this some kind of adware/phishing/virus etc? The images in the right frame appeared while typing a status update; when I finished entering the update they disappeared. I haven't been able to reproduce this consistently but it has happened twice since yesterday. Anyone seen this?

Unrelated: In 2010 this might be a laughable statement, but you've got a name on that screen shot--dunno if you meant for that to show, since now it's linked to your username here.

That looks less like a scam to me and more like some malformed html is displaying all the images in a gallery, perhaps?

Thanks. I guess I was more concerned with my friends' privacy I forgot about my own!

Sorry. Seems like replacing the photo on flickr broke the link.
This should work.

Looks to me like a misbehaving add-on. Try disabling Greasemonkey or any other content-manipulating extensions and see if that fixes the problem. Through trial-and-error you may be able to find the culprit.

That was it. I completely forgot I had installed greasemonkey. Thanks so much!
