From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.0.0) Gecko/20020530 BuildID: 2002053012 If I set in the preferences "Do not load any images" and then load an HTML page that's on a local drive, the images load anyway. I assume this is by design (although if you ask me it's very contradictory, since "do not load any images" should mean just what it says), but there are two problems/bugs regarding this: 1) This makes testing pages using Mozilla essentially impossible because there is no way to see what my page looks like without images. (I have to purposefully break all of my image links, upload to a temporary remote site, or use another browser, if I want to see what a remote visitor would see if they don't have image loading on, or if they are using a text-only browser.) 2) More critically: remote images on local pages get loaded regardless of the settings in the preferences dialog. In other words, say I open a local HTML file that has an image link with a SRC set to something like "http://www.remote.com/image.gif"...my computer will then attempt to open an internet connection (if I don't have one open already) and download the image. Even though I have image loading turned off! (This also has a few potential security/privacy ramifications.) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Turn images off. 2. Open a local HTML page, preferably one with a remote image (web rings are good for this). Actual Results: Images are loaded anyway. Expected Results: Do not (automatically) load any images whatsoever if "Do not load any images" is selected. At the very least, do not load remote images along with local images.
