Likely a file path problem.
See bug 175866 for example.

WorksForMe using FizzillaMach/2003022003. I save your JPEG file to my disk and
drag it to Mozilla window, and it is successfully displayed with the URL,
<file:///Users/{my username}/Desktop/Electronics-102.jpg>.

Douglas, your HTML testcases are too big. Please minimize one, removing every
bit of code not necessary to demonstrate the problem.

Reporter: Can you reproduce this bug with a recent build of Mozilla (for
example, 1.4rc3)? 

If so, then please comment again with details. 
If not, then please resolve this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks.

Reporter, i get javascript errors trying to test your files.
can you please make a smaller testcase?
WFM Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7a) Gecko/20040125

Also WFM most every version of Mozilla I have used.  Resolving WORKSFORME as the
reporter hasn't responded in a number of months.
