From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020417 BuildID: 2002041711 Slashdot is a good example of the problem. The images give me the Broken Image icon, but when I force a refresh from the web, the images come in fine. I have used NS6.2, IE6, and K-Meleon(a light version of Mozilla), and the page loads in earlier Gecko builds. It seems to be a Mozilla 1.0RC1 bug. It also happens on GameSpot, Tom's Hardware, and Winamp.com. I ran the Debug -> Verification -> GIF Images, and I have to reload. JPEG and PNG work fine. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Visit any of the above websites, possibly more Actual Results: Images don't appear, and give me a Broken Image icon, but don't load. Expected Results: I expect the Images to load.

I confirm this behavior on Windows 2000 with build 20020417 Images seem to not appear throughout a site, usually a site I've visited previously (suggesting that this is a cache issues) such at www.mozilla.org or www.google.org Usually pressing the reload button is not enough. Shift-reload usually works, though this means I have to shift-reload every page in a site I've previously visited. When that doesn't work, I either restart the browser or switch to N6.2.2 or IE6. Selecting the Cache option "Every time I view the page" does not seem to help.
I have been using Mozilla 1RC2 since its release and never saw this problem. However, yesterday I loaded up Netscape 6.2 and, when I switched back to Mozilla, this problem started to appear. Later yesterday, I also installed the Netscape 7 preview release. Today I am seeing the image problem almost continuously. It seems to be some sort of cross-version compatability problem.
Are you sharing profile/cache between Mozilla / NS? That is known to cause problem
Couldn't this be a duplicate of bug 121084? The broken-gif-saga continues...
Original reporter C Richards: are you sharing profile/cache between Netscape 6/7 and Mozilla as asked in comment 5? If so, this is a duplicate of Bug 134517. If not, I believe this is likely Bug 121084.
Comment #4 seems like Bug 134517. However, original report leads me to conclude this is a duplicate of Bug 121084. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 121084 ***
