Cannot upload tga file, the only one I generate are 1.8 megs, your file utility
only supports 300k.

targas typically compress well, zip the file up and attach the zip.

Zipped the file is 800k and using rar compression it is 694k.
Are you able to supply a Talkback ID?

chris@thecongo.co.uk: why must a bug that has no testcase and no stacktrace and
is not triaged be fixed asap?

I'm unable to reproduce this with Firefox 1.0.6 or 1.5b2 and Quicktime 6.5.1.

Kevin - do you know what plugin is handling .tga files and it's version?

I just tried it in 1.07 and the bug seems fixed. Don't know about earlier
version's and it looks like quicktime is handleing the plugin. I know when I
first reported this quicktime would NOT work with FireFox. I totaly forgot about
this until the recent flurry of posts in the last 2 days.
