1) Ok, first you need to understand that particles are displayed locally.  That means each person's computer is showing them the particles, and as such, each person may see something different. (which reduces lag and server load)

2)  You may have particles "turned off", and if so you will not see them. 

3)You can turn particles "off" or "on" this way:

"Particles are often used for environmental enhancements like fire and smoke as well as laser light shows. If you want to turn them off in Second Life Viewer 2, the solution is: Press
Ctrl+Alt+d a new tab will appear, Advanced > Rendering types > High Lighting and Visibility > Hide Particles
.

    In viewers that still function like Second Life viewer 1 the path is: View > Beacons > Hide Particles."

Me Menu > Preferences > Graphics

Check the 'advanced' box if this page just shows a slider with 'low' to 'ultra'.  Then you can see all the individual controls.

Below the slider and to the right is the 'Particles' count slider.  Adjust this to 2,000 - 4,000

Click 'Apply' and 'OK' at the bottom of the page

 

(ETA: 3 different answers all around the same time - try Rollig's first because it's easy, then mine.  Celestiall's is the ultimate)
