Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040911 Firefox/0.10
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040911 Firefox/0.10

When using a slow connection, such as dialup that is being heavily used, picture
downloads seem to time-out with Firefox only loading a portion of the total
picture. The page then needs to be refreshed to fully load the image.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on a page with several large images.
2. Wait for them to load, or only semi-load.


Actual Results:  
The pictures appear incomplete, with only a portion of them downloaded (can be
anywhere from 50% downloaded, to 75%).

Expected Results:  
Loaded all images fully.

Using the default display theme, with the G-Mail plugin (disabling makes no
difference as it is unrelated).

Also, ICS is being used to share the dialup internet to this computer from another.

There is only 2 computers on the network. This one, and the host.

It's just a HTTP request timing out.

Try setting network.http.request.timeout pref to a bigger value in about:config
