From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.9+) Gecko/20020408 BuildID: 2002040803 When viewing the page info for a page that uses transparent images with white text on them, these are show against a white background under Page Info/Media. It might be better to use a different background, like the dark grey/light grey checkerboard used by graphics applications. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Go to the given URL and show page info, all menu items will show as the same white rectangle against a white background.
ah, the checkerboard part is a good idea.

Created attachment 115990 [details] image the actual image, goes in themes/classic/navigator/ and themes/modern/navigator/
He did say dark grey/light grey, not light grey/white.
Yes, but I'm implementing it.
Comment on attachment 115989 [details] [diff] [review] patch Timeless, could you review this?
I fail to see how this helps transparent images with white text when the background is still half white. White text is more likely than grey text, and the background should be made up of the lesser-used color.
Created attachment 116103 [details] alternative checkerboard background image Using a light/dark grey checkerboard would, in my opinion, work slightly better. The attached image used the colors 0x808080 and 0xC0C0C0. I have also decreased the size of individual blocks to 10x10 (instead of 15x15) as this allows you to make quick judgements on the size of parts of the image.
Comment on attachment 115989 [details] [diff] [review] patch hrm. this approach doesn't work well. paint shop pro lets the user change the pattern colors and the grid size. how about allowing the user to drag the image around? being able to drag the image would allow the user to see a mask (which indicates where transparency would be) as well as letting the user shift across whatever background you provide. the patch is trivial, you can have my review if you want it, but i wouldn't do this it the way you're doing it :)
doesn't appear to be possible from js, however

This still applies in my Forefox 3.0.11, and probably still applies in any version that uses a white background. An example image can be found at http://nedbatchelder.com/blog/200801/truly_transparent_text_with_pil.html Specifically, http://nedbatchelder.com/pix/transtext.png
Bug is still present in SeaMonkey 2.0 build. Confirming as NEW.
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Also there is Bug 353721 for the Firefox version of this bug.
