can you check if this is caused by Bug 285981 Boris ?
Summary: blocked images is displayed as broken image → blocked images are displayed as broken images
It seems that it was, but because we're using nsImgManager, not
nsContentBlocker... (at least in SeaMonkey).  I thought we'd flipped the switch
to use the latter.
Attached patch Fix at least SeaMonkey (obsolete) — Splinter Review
I don't have a working Firefox build at the moment (things are still building
from the pull I did on Friday), but this fixes SeaMonkey...

actually removing nsImgManager is bug 287628. That would also fix this bug.
Er...  But if we're using nsImgManager, then there is no way to tell from the
content policy return value why the image was blocked, is there?  So should we
back out bug 202906?

Or are we saved by the fact that we no longer use the prefs that nsImgManager
looks at?
Depends on: 287628
nsImgManager will be removed. the new version, nsContentBlocker tries to return
the right values. No need to back out.

patch bug 287628 included


can this bug be resolved/wfm ?
When blocking images from a website, is the alt text meant to be shown instead
of the picture? Because currently it isn't, but iirc it used to do this.
that's bug 285981 which is supposed to be fixed.
I can confirm it isn't.
that bug is about security blocked images, like when linking to file:// images
from a http:// page.
Images that are blocke dusing the image manager don't show alt-text, becuase it
are usually ads, and you don't want to read alt either in that case. see bug 202906
Fixed by checkin for bug 287628.  To make it clear, the desired (and now
implemented behavior) is that alt text is shown for all images that are not
loaded with the single exception of images blocked via the "block images from
this site" option in image manager.
