    Gallery has no place to save anything. When the phone starts (or restarts or you do a media thing, like take a picture, or you run media.Re.Scan), Media Scanner builds a database of media files on the phone. Gallery looks in that database to see which files to display. An update could have changed things so Facebook pictures don't trigger Media Scanner. Or the Facebook picture folder could now have a file in it named .nomedia (leading dot), so Media Scanner won't scan that folder.
