I'm afraid this is going to be a strange bug report. I wrote a perl script to open, read, and print out a jpg image to STDOUT. Every time I run it in mozilla RC2, what happens is that the jpg happily prints out from top to bottom, and then when it gets to the bottom, it disappears to be replaced with the non-selectable mesasge "The image "[full href to image here]" cannot be displayed, because it contains errors." Netscape and IE display it fine. In Mozilla if I put some gobbledygook into the location bar href and hit enter (404) and then hit "Back", the image shows up fine. The message appears to be generated from mozilla; it is not selectable text. View source prompts me to download the image, which is then displayable in any image application. The image as generated on disk (what the script reads from) is valid. Any clues? I can give you more details but it would involve showing you my perl script, which seems like a tangent. I'm hoping that this is just a known mozilla bug that I haven't noticed elsewhere in bugzilla. Thanks Curt
Does it work (for the first time) if you delete the cache and load the image ? (see the duped bug 145993)
Maybe this should be smooshed into 121084 . That's exactly the bug - deleting cache didn't do it, but setting it to "when page is out of date" rather than "every time I load the page" makes it work again. Please note - shift-reload doesn't work in this case because the image was generated by hitting a submit button! So there was no other workaround. I hope this one is fixed by 1.0 - I just spent two hours trying to research why my perl code was buggy. :( (Oh well, it was billable.) Thanks for the dupe pointer.
Thanks ! BTW: i don't think that this will be fixed for 1.0... *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 121084 ***
