From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204 BuildID: 2002020406 Currently linked, blocked images are not displayed, but neither is any indication that their positions remain active. This leads to unwanted link activation when users click on the "whitespace" still occupied. I tend to trigger this behavior when using a mouse click to refocus a window. This is also troubling for sites containing sidebar advertisements that fit within, but do not fill, document margins. Idle clicking can lead to undesired document requests. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: ------------------- 1. Visit site with linked images. 2. Block the image server delivering the linked images (I use slashdot.org) 3. Reload document. 4. Notice that linked images are hidden, but still active. Actual Results: --------------- Images were blocked. Links remained active. I, as a user, had to recall from memory where active areas of "whitespace" remained. Expected Results: ----------------- Mozilla should have indicated where active areas remain even after images positioning those areas are blocked. Possible Solutions: ------------------- Possible solutions include display of an image's ALT or TITLE attribute values and/or placing a border around linked images that have been blocked. A more drastic solution would be to deactivate links for blocked images. I don't think the latter is a good solution, as I (at least) use blocked images for navigational purposes (e.g., Slashdot logo).
