After following a link on Asa Dotzler's blog to a very large image over at
Nasa's website, I decided to maximize the browser while the image was in the
loading process.  Shortly after maximizing, the Mozilla taskbar button
completely disappeared.  The image was still loading (it's huge) and I tried to
un-maximize the window back to its previous size.  Doing so did not bring the
taskbar button back.  So I clicked on Outlook Express in the taskbar, and then
hit Alt-Tab to select Mozilla again.  This brought the taskbar entry back.

Not sure if this is at all related to the problem, but I tried hitting the
"Stop" button so the image would stop loading, and it said something like "There
was an error in the cannot be loaded."

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with Mozilla in a non-maximized state (so smaller than the size of the
2. Load
in the main tab
3. While the image loads, maximize the browser

Actual Results:  
The Mozilla taskbar button completely disappears.

Expected Results:  
The browser maximizes normally so that I can see a bigger portion of the image,
but the Mozilla button persists in the taskbar.

Just as an added note, after filing the bug I tried to reproduce it a few times 
and couldn't, unfortunately.  It may be that the timing of whatever I did was 
just right.  I can tell that while the image is loading, maximizing and un-
maximizing is very slow...seems like the browser is working hard.
