On eBay, thumbnail images of an item can be clicked to see a larger version of
the image without reloading the page.  This hasn't worked for weeks in Mozilla
(or ever? I can't be certain) - no Javascript errors or anything obvious -
clicking on the clickable image (the cursor does change to indicate that it's a
hyperlink) just doesn't appear to do anything.  It works under Netscape 4.7 and
IE 6.0.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just go to above link
2. Click on one of the smaller images on that page

Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  
Replace the large image with the smaller one that you clicked on.
When I click on the thumbnail there is a small delay while the big image is
fetched, then the big image is shown (Win98 Mozilla 1.5b build).

It works for me in the 9/10 build on Win XP.  You are aware it is not a pop-up
image you should expect?  It just changes the image in the large box next to the
wfm with win2k build 20030911..

This is odd that it works for you guys.  I just went back to the URL and it
definitely doesn't work for me - I'm running build 2003091004 on win2k.  It also
doesn't work at home, where I'm running WinXP (also a recent build - I think the
official 1.5beta load.)
Is there some security option that might be set incorrectly?  I looked under the
privacy/security tab on the browser but didn't see anything obvious (e.g. I
allow all image loading and "unwanted popups"; javascript is enabled for the

I guess I'll next try totally uninstalling/re-installing Mozilla.  Maybe it's some
corruption from overlaying versions.
Do you allow changing images under "Preferences > Advanced > Scripts & Plugins"?

Oh boy, do I feel stupid now.  You're right!  Sorry everyone for filing this
