From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20010913 BuildID: 2001091303 After copying the quicktime plugin DLLs as described in the smoketests, I found that loading http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/img_png/pngs-img-netpos.png calls the Quicktime plugin (shows the blue Q logo while loading the image and all). I was under the impression that Mozilla provided native PNG decoding. If so, there is no need to use a plugin. It sucks down performance and increases memory use. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install the quicktime plugin 2. Load the URL above 3. Sit and watch Actual Results: I saw the Quicktime 5 plugin activate. Status bar says: 'Starting Plugin for type image/png' Expected Results: Native mozilla (imagelib) decodes and shows the picture Quicktime 5 is set to take PNG images in my WinNT setup. I use an NT4SP6, Celeron 300, 64Mb, S3 Virge DX machine. Apparently, not all PNG images have this problem. Using the default page for viewing PNG, Quicktime is apparently not called. Not knowing Imagelib intimately, this could either be because PNG is not fully supported or because the mime type handler misdirects. Marked as minor since no loss of functionality occurs. Nominating for perf keyword.
The quicktime plugin is telling the browser to use it for displaying PNGs. You need to turn off the setting if your version is new enough. See bug 69719 for more info. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 69719 ***
