Some of the images on this page are not displayed.  The ALT text
is shown instead.

Another URL with missing images is

My Mozilla is a nightly build downloaded 2000-02-16.

This works fine using build 2000-02-15-16 on NT.
Could you attach a screenshot, so we can find out what images are missing.

I've put some shots in

the file aftenposten-view-image.jpg shows Mozilla after rigt clicking an
invisible image, and choosing "view image".

Can you verify that your preference is set correctly?  From the Edit menu, 
select the "Preferences..." item.  Click the "Advanced" item from the tree on 
the left.  Is the checkbox labeled "Automatically load images" checked?

also meant to say that the images loaded OK for me on 2000021608 on NT.

Comment 5

Most images are loaded correctly (as you may see from the screen shots),
so I guess the "Automatically load images" is checked.  I have my Mozilla
at work, and I'm at home at the moment, so I can't verify untill tomorrow.

Using ssh to my work computer, I can confirm that "Automatically load
images" was checked.  I downloaded another latest build to my home
computer (running Linux), and here the images load perfectly!  This
version seems to have been build 8 hours after the one I tested at
work.  Also, the Mozilla that failed to load images had an old .mozilla
directory available.  Could this be the problem?

reporter - are you still seeing this?

Comment 9

19 years ago  I haven't tested for the last few days, but the same
thing happened a few nightly builds later than the initial report.  I only
see this at work, not at home.  At work I'm running SUsE 6.2, at home I have
a do-it-yourself Linux.  The company I work for is behind a firewall, but port
80 is open, so I guess that is not the cause for this.

Comment 10

19 years ago I did a new test at work today, and it still fails.
The newest file in the mozilla download is dated "Feb 28 18:39".  Before
running, I deleted the old package directory, and my ~/.mozilla directory.
Are there any other files that contain Mozilla information?  The ant at doesn't show.  If I try to load it directly
using, I just get a gray page with
the URL in the upper left corner.  The console sais "Error loading URL" with no more information on what
causes the error.  Could there be library problems with my SUsE installation?
I must repeat that I do not see this behavior at home where I don't use
SUsE Linux.
hmmm.  Sounds like a problem with your Linux.

However, I think this is invalid, as this does not seem to be mozilla's problem.
 You could try to see if you can view the images on linux without mozilla (ie
netscape 4.7 for linux). If they work, then it is mozilla, and should be moved
to Imagelib component,.

I'm using Netscape (4.6 I think) on that SUsE Linux daily, and it works
very well.
so, on netscape 4, the images show correctly?  Try downloading them and viewing 
them in mozilla on your harddisk.

It seems the problem is with JPEG images only.  tcpdump tells me that
Mozilla is able to download the file, so I guess the problem is with
the library.  strace shows that Mozilla opens /usr/lib/,
which is a symlink to on my SuSE Linux.

Netscape Navigator 4.61 shows JPEGs correctly, as does xv, which uses
the same libjpeg as Mozilla.  When downloading a file and reading it
using a file:// URL, Mozilla fails to view the image just like it does
when reading from the net.
reporter - please look at bug 27617, which I think is related to this.

I am marking this bug a duplicate of 27617. If that bug does not help to resolve
your problem, please report to that bug, not this one. thanks
