embed objects not shown in page info preview
http://www.cmp-lab.or.jp/technical/image/iformat/png/sample.html source: <embed SRC="ayaka.png" WIDTH=392 HEIGHT=327 ALT="ayaka.png (14k)"><br> page info shows the other two images in <img> tags, but this one has no full path, and just shows a broken image icon. cvs moz linux.
cursed relative paths
http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/xpfe/browser/resources/content/pageInfo.js#808 looks like we've disabled <embed> and <object> preview in page info (something about java, crashes, security holes, etc, iirc). Bug 149777 has some of the nifty details; in particular, the patch there (bug 149777, comment 14) does: 4) When protocol is not allowed and/or element is OBJECT or EMBED, set the image to 'loading-image.gif' (a blank image would be better, but...). So this is by-design....

Same on Win.

BTW bug 153545 is IMHO related.
It's not. This bug arises because we no longer show preview for <embed>s in page info due to security consideration. Changing summary to reflect this.
Summary: relative path embed objects not shown correctly in page info → embed objects not shown in page info preview
Reproduced using FizzillaCFM/2002103011. Setting All/All. I presume we could define a set of acceptable MIME types to preview and display some sort of security warning for the rest.

Severity: normal → minor
Even if security concerns mean we can't actually display the object, it would be nice to show something a little better than a broken-image icon....
This is now a one line fix. We already allow HTMLObjectElement when isProtocolAllowed is true. I am going to do this in Bug 491310.
