What should happen is that when you are viewing an image, as opposed to an
HTML, TXT or XML document, and it turns out to be broken, some feedback should
be provided to inform you of the problem.

Something like (inline, instead of the image):

    /\  This image is not valid.
   /__\ URI: http://www.pavlov.net/pr0n/catherine/00055.jpeg
        Content-Type: image/jpeg

        Error: The JPEG header was missing the JPEG signature. This is probably 
        not a JPEG image.

Of course, mpt could give you better text.

Pavlov: btw, you can probably implement that by using <object> instead of <img>
and by putting the error message in the <object> element's alternate content.

ok; <object> can not be used because of bugs in Mozilla (bug 96976, bug 127963).

I will file a new bug for converting this code to use <object> after they are

not sure if this is the right place, but this should go to whoever owns the
content viewers.

This is a dup of bug 90256. The patch that has been started in that bug to wrap
plugins in a synthetic document will fix this bug.
