The above URL points to a JPG whose 'file' output is "DCP_1929.JPG: JPEG image data, EXIF standard 0.77, 42 x 0" IE 5.5 renders this JPG just fine. This problem occurred with Mozilla 1.1 on both Linux and Win2K.
It's a server configuration bug : the webserver send the wrong MIME-type to the browser (should have been image/jpeg) : HTTP/1.1 200 OK Date: Sat, 28 Sep 2002 09:10:52 GMT Server: Apache/1.3.20 (Unix) Connection: close Content-Type: text/html
OK - try this instead: http://www.maddyhome.com/canardpages/pages/bittner/index.html Click on the first image to bring up a bigger image. The bigger image has the problem. index.html has a simple <img> tag to the "bad" JPG file that Mozilla can't handle.

The first image on http://www.maddyhome.com/canardpages/pages/bittner/index.html is http://www.maddyhome.com/canardpages/pages/bittner/DCP_1929.JPG (scaled down to width="320") and it is rendered fine even though it is sent with the wrong MIME type of "text/html". Clicking on it takes you to the same image URL (unscaled) but now it is not rendered (as an image). Part of content: <a href="DCP_1929.JPG"><img src="DCP_1929.JPG" width="320"></a> My guess is that we interpret the SRC attribute of an IMG element as an image no matter what the server says. Accessing the image URL directly we use the MIME type the server sends to tell us what it is. INVALID?
Rick, gif images also have a bad mime type, please update your web server to send proper MIME type for images, etc.
file is sent as text/html, mozilla shows it as text/html. that's correct behaviour...
