from reporter: No I don't own this site. 

Was simply doing Editor work for DMOZ.ORG search engine data base and this was a

against a wide variety of tests. Sorry I am not technically savvy enough to have
discovered the jpeg-ness of the site. 

Hard to know whether Mozilla should interpret prissily or not in this case, i.e.
duplicate IE's "bug". I guess I'd lean on YES even though the web admin is at
No, Mozilla should not display it as image and you can't win the discussion (and
this has been discussed in other bugs ..)

There is no contact at the site and you can't do anything because you see only
this jpeg image. (the second URl is dead for me...)

If this is going to be a TE bug, then one of these domains should be spun off
into its own bug.

I would question whether it's worth the trouble to evangelize either site,
though, since there's "no there, there".  Both home pages are images that go
nowhere, do nothing.
