The lack of the facility to display alt text when the text has been provided in the source code may be a breach of the UK's Disability Discrimination Act. Apart from that, alt text is a useful way of adding a caption to an image. This is probably the one thing that stops me using Firefox as my primary browser. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Move the cursor over any image on the web site. 2. 3. Actual Results: Nothing displayed Expected Results: Alt text should have been displayed.
Alt text is not meant for this purpose. It's meant to be displayed if the image cannot be shown. Read over bug 25537 for a full explanation. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 25537 ***
