I was trying to display a map of Cleveland (and tested with other venues) but
the area where the map *.gif goes is blank.  I did a right click, view image and
then I can see it.  I do not block any images from any sites.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  go to http://www.mapquest.com
2.  type in a city and state
3.  click on "map it"

Actual Results:  
I get a normal screen, EXCEPT the area where the map is to be displayed is
"blank" "white".

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should have displayed the "map" or gif image of the map.

I have only had one other problem with Mozilla, and the bug patch for that was
to delete the compreg.dat file, which I did on Oct 29.  Has been working fine
till I found this bug.

Works for me, 2002111808.

Reporter, try the following (in turn):

1) Clear the browser cache (Preferences->Advanced->Cache -> Clear Disk Cache,
Clear Memory Cache)

2) Disable Pipelining (Preferences->Advanced->HTTP Networking)

my guess is that you only allow images from the originate website only.
- the site you're visiting is http://www.mapquest.com
- the image is taken from http://mq-mapgend.websys.aol.com
so you're image is blocked.

Check preferences for this

One check would be to visit http://www.apple.com . If you see no images there,
you definitely need to change your prefs to load those images.

no response from reporter, assuming comment 2 or comment 3 fixed the problem.
Marking this one WFM
