Mng-support was recently removed from Mozilla (see bug 195280). That's why you
can't display it (in a webpage or in mail), although you can always download the
attachment and view it in another application ofcourse. But I'm wondering why
you can see it in the compose-window ?

Oh I see. MNG-support was removed from the trunk, not the 1.4 branch.

So you want to report that you can see the image in a composer-window, but not
in an email ? Will this be INVALID ?

Yes - as I understand it, 1.4 and derivatives will have full mng support.

To clarify - When you compose an html email with Mozilla mail and insert an mng
image, it displays correctly in the composer window.

When you send this email, and a recipient opens it, the mail reader window
displays an empty box where the mng image should be, with just the broken link
icon in it.

The mng image is, however, transmitted in the email and can be opened by means
of the attachment pane.

I've attached a mng image should you want to try it...

Better yet, attach screenshots showing how the two states are different. That
may be more helpful.

Since, of course, we can't open MNG images ourselves. ;)

Compose Window

This image shows the compose window with the ming animation correctly
displayed. Even the preview window on file/select showed the animation running!

Receive window

The receive window with the ming animation displayed as a broken link, yet
available in the attachment pane. (Right clicking on catrunbar.mng and
selecting open displays the animation).

The ming animation used
The 1.4 branch have been replaced by the 1.7 branch as a platform for others to
build on.

Since 1.7 does not include MNG support should this bug not be marked invalid ?
We can always take up this issue again when MNG is reintroduced into the Mozilla
