LOL okay that only works because microsoft is taking a short cut with blending a
blue colour on the image and even fails on IE as soon as it get scaled. Can
someone make this invalid or won't fix?

( oh check boarding that M$ does changes the picture from sun flowers to a porn
picture ).
*cough* Yes, anyone doing bug triage on this, don't attempt to reproduce in
IE... on the family computer... with parents in the room. =) My eyes glazed over
the word "porn" in comment #1.

Should we wontfix based upon comment #1?

This is a crude workaround, but it will render IE's ctrl-a equivalent in
Mozilla for this type of hidden image, and even has improved color fidelity
over IE.  (However it won't work in IE, which is 1 pixel off.)

Okay, given that the URL is now 404 Not Found, let's put this bug out of its
misery.  If someone comes up with a new (preferably family friendly) testcase
and can make a legitimate case for emulating IEs behaviour, feel free to reopen!  ;)
