Please provide more information. Are you providing an URL to an image hosted elsewhere, or trying to set your profile to an avatar provided on the site?

There doesn't appear to be a problem in updating profile information. Are you sure you are submitting the form with the Submit button?

Its possible that you are trying to link to an image on a site that does not allow hotlinking (linking to their images).

When you link to an image on another site you are using their bandwidth, which they have to pay for, so many sites will not allow it. It is basically classed as 'stealing bandwidth' and should be avoided. It would be better if you could host the image yourself, if you have some free web space with your ISP account for example, you could put the image there and link to it.

Have a look at the avatar guidelines.
