Description Andrew Hagen 2002-01-11 19:14:03 PST
I know, I know! Animated GIF's! Who cares? Well, I don't personally care a lot.
But if you're going to have the world's best web client, then it needs to do
animated GIFs really well. There are some outstanding bugs in this area, the bug
numbers of which I'm going to try to find.

If anyone wants to add or subtract bugs from the list, please do so. Thanks.

This bug is not a duplicate of bug 66966. That one focuses on animation bugs
generally, including GIFs, JavaScript, and other methods of animating graphics.
This bug focuses on animated GIFs, although I might open it up to animated PNGs,
too.

Well, you beat me to this bug. I will be going through the various dependencies
and trying to sort out exactly what is going on in each case. Many of these bugs
are twisted, confused, and overlapping. There are only a certain number of
features of GIF89a that we aren't following properly, and until we narrow down
exactly what those are, we really can't fix them.
Comment 3 Vincent Nicolas 2002-01-18 01:14:11 PST
I would say that resolving these bugs for Mozilla 1.0 is critical !
IE will not be scared by browsers having problems displaying "simple" gifs !
A enourmous work is needed on ImageLib imho...
Comment 4 Andrew Hagen 2002-01-18 06:51:04 PST
You can nominate bugs for 1.0 by adding "Moazilla 1.0" to the keywords line.
Comment 5 Andrew Hagen 2003-11-25 10:38:12 PST
I no longer have time to maintain this. If anyone is interested in taking it,
please assign it to yourself. If there is no longer interest in this, we can
resolve it as invalid.

I don't think that anyone else needs this tracking bug. There is no change since 2008
Comment 8 Cajon 2016-02-04 08:32:12 PST
But still some bugs are pending and open in this list
e.g. 129986
