207 bytes, text/html
I have an HTML page on disk that includes an image loaded via HTTP from a server that requires me to logon. If I load this HTML page without having previously authenticated with the server during this browser session, then the password / logon dialog is not shown and the image is not loaded. If I have previously authenticated with the server then the image does load. This occurs both when a) the SRC= part of the IMG tag contains a relative URL and I have specified the server using the HREF= part of the BASE tag b) the complete URL is in the SRC= part of the IMG tag I'm running Mozilla 0.9.4 under WINNT 4.0 SP6a
added 4xp as this doesn't happen with Communicator 4.78
Bruce: Could you please attach a testcase?
To make a test case you need to know the URL of an image that needs authentication before you can access it. I'm sorry that the only ones I know are on my employer's Intranet and these are not accessible from the Internet. Therefore I can't make a test case that is suitable for you. I have attached the simplified test case I made to demonstrate the problem within our Intranet. If you know a suitable URL you can modify this by 1) replacing the HREF= part of the BASE tag 2) replacing the SRC= part of the IMG tag
This is a dupe of bug 62108 (No Basic Authentication dialog for inline images <IMG>) Please reopen if you disagree ! *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 62108 ***
