The main phorum page of this web site use 2 graphics to display the stat of a
message (visible or not visible). The default is not show the message and I put
a graphic.

Well, when you click in it. The message shows and the graphics is replaced for
another one (via javascript). But it doesn't change!

In IE the things work right

I believe that the javascript use standards methods and properties :-)

The problem I think is the 2nd graphic is not loaded. IE load the graphic
*later* when it is setted by javascript code.

I think that mozilla must load all that it need when the page is modified via
javascript: if the code chage the a graphic for another it must be loaded.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to
2. When the phorum page load. Click into the papiro graphic

Actual Results:  The message shows, but the graphic doesn't change

Expected Results:  It'd have to change and load the new graphic setted by
javascript  (I think)
IE load it later and I believe that it must be the expected result because it is
very usefull for intranet/internet applications (with graphics and others html

I'm sort of guessing and the Mozilla people will know for sure, but I think the
problem is with trying to use window.event. Take a look at this page:

It compares Mozilla to IE and says about Mozilla: "No window.event, and
different interface for event objects"

You are using this type of code to change the image: window.event.srcElement.src

Confirming report.

David's guess is correct. The site only changes the image if the browser
has a |window.event| object. This is an IE-only extension of DOM syntax,
and Mozilla doesn't have it. So in Mozilla, the images never get changed. 

Here is an example from the site. Notice the mostrarOnOff() function
only changes the image under the |if(window.event)| clause. Since
|window.event| evaluates to true in IE, but false in Mozilla, the site
changes the image for IE, but never changes the image for Mozilla -

<img id="{msg_dom_id_text}" src="../images_system/msg_abierto.png"
         width="17" height="17" alt="Ver/Ocultar mensaje" border="0" 
         OnClick="return mostrarOnOff( 'msg_img_1', -1);">

function mostrarOnOff(eName, action) 
  var elem = buscar(eName)

  if (action == 1) = "inline";

  else if (action == 0) = "none";

    if ( == "none")
    { = "inline";
      if(window.event) <<<---------------------------- THIS IS THE PROBLEM!
        window.event.srcElement.src = "../images_system/msg_cerrado.png";
    { = "none";
      if(window.event) <<<---------------------------- THIS IS THE PROBLEM!
        window.event.srcElement.src = "../images_system/msg_abierto.png";

same file, different issue

function mostrarImagen( src, max_w, alt)  {
        i = new Image();
        i.src = src;
        if( i.width >  max_w)  { <-- note width==0 for image not loaded yet
                i.width = max_w;
        sw = i.width;

        document.write('<img src="'+src+'" alt="'+alt+'" width="'+sw+'"
