Thanks to GLadstone, extensions to Firefox and Chrome have been found and they work.

If they are installed, when going into a topic that has externally linked images to Photobucket, you will see their ransomeware image for about a second and then the actual images as posted on Photobucket appear.

THANKS TO GLadstone for making the forum aware of this work around. It should work until and if Photobucket can stop the extensions from working on their site.

Here are the links provided by GLadstone to the extensions for each browser:
