Description

13 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041217
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041217

When displaying a compressed (apache mod_gzip) targa image, either embedded in a
page or on its own, the plugin either crashes or displays party-uncompressed(?)
data. 

The image isn't corrupted if I save it to disk from Mozilla and then display it
in another program. The problem does not occur in IE with the same version of
the plugin.

Tested in Mozilla 1.7.3/Quicktime 6.0.2 & Mozilla 1.7.5/Quicktime 6.5.1.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open given URL in Mozilla
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
Plugin crashes, or partly garbled image is displayed.

Expected Results:  
Displayed the image

Similar to bug #272404, but occurs just viewing an image on it's own.

Error message below:

Illegal Operation in Plugin

Quicktime Plug-in 6.5.1
The plugin performed an illegal operation. You are strongly advised to restart
Navigator.

I hadn't initally as only Mozilla/Firefox seem to be affected. Just to be sure,
I've made a post in the quicktime support forum.

Using Firefox 3.5 and the QuickTime plugin 7.4.5, the issue no longer occurs, as the plugin doesn't seem to handle TGA images. Instead, I receive the prompt to save the file or open it in an external application.
