Some images---but not all---fail to appear in the browser. I've noticed this most frequently in photos of actors from IMDB, including the above headshot of Cuba Gooding Jr. However, if I download the image externally, using fetch, then browse it locally with Mozilla, it looks just fine. I can provide other examples from IMDB if you like. It seems to apply to all photos of actors.
worksforme on windows. over to imagelib
Works for me. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011022
I got the new release and rebuilt, and I still get a blank window from the sample URL. So what can I do to chase this down? Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD i386; en-US; rv:0.9.5) Gecko/20011024
1. I've only seen this happen with IMDB. 2. The image arrives correctly in the mozilla cache. I confirmed this with xloadimage. 3. When I fetch the image manually to a file, then visit it there with a file: URL, mozilla displays it correctly. 4. When I drop the manually fetched image onto my local home page, and visit it there with an http://localhost URL, mozilla displays it correctly.
Reporter: In preferences, under "Privacy and Security" - "Images": What are your settings? Do you accept receiving images from all servers?
Bingo! My preference was set to `Accept all images,' but images from i.imdb.com were explicitly blocked from displaying by an entry in the Image Manager. I removed the entry, and voila: IMDB images now appear correctly. Thanks for the tip, I'm glad to have this cleared up.
