If you go to above URL, you'll notice you can't stop the animated MNG with the
stop button. Preferences->Privacy&Security->Images-> Animated_Images_should_loop
settings don't have any effect either.
This applies to every animated MNG you can find.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to above URL
2.Watch the big image at the top loop forever
3.Try to stop it - you can't

Actual Results:  The image still loops.

Expected Results:  Looping should stop and also honor the Preferences for image

This may be a regression as we now can't stop all animated images anymore.
The stop button also doesn't affect animated gifs (bug 70030).
Yes, but MNG images also do *not* honor the preferences in Images->
Animated_Images_should_loop which is ok for GIFs.
Is this bug EVER going to get fixed?  (should've been fixed a year ago)
Severity: major → normal
OS: Linux → All
Hardware: PC → All
setting the pref to "loop once" still loops the mng image forever. Either the 
code should be fixed or the pref should be changed to "gif animation"
Ever confirmed: true

Depends on: mng
This patch is against patch 'Full MNG-1.0.6+ restoration to Mozilla-1.7a
(gzip)' from 2004-02-18 18:41 PST of bug 18574 . And will be included in the
next patch on 18574.

With the patch the animation pref will be honored and also some clean-ups or
'looks like gif container' included.

Will make a new binary tomorrow on mngzilla.
Attached patch updated patchSplinter Review
The old patch had sometimes problems viewing all 'animated' MNG's. So here
comes a update. mngzilla packages are on compile.
Attachment #142096 - Attachment is obsolete: true
patch is in bug #18574 and will be checked in if MNG comes back :-)
