I have created a simple transparent .png image.  This was created using the gimp.  I am using css to insert into page.  However on firefox 1.0.7 it will not display.  I have tried the same page in mozilla and in opera and the image displays.

Reproducible: Always

There is something I forgot to mention.  Opening the image on its own in firefox causes no problem as the image appears.  I thought it was faulty html/css code, but this appeared not to be the case when opened in other browsers - including mozilla.

It could be a bug, but the fact that it works in other browsers doesn't mean you couldn't have made a mistake, since some browsers are more forgiving than others in interpreting mistaken html/css. 

Try giving a url to a page displaying the bad behaviour so that others may check.

Try This.

It looks right to me on all browsers I tried 
Firefox 1.5
Firefox 1.0.7
Internet explorer

The symptoms described can be replicated by not using the default stylesheet, and instead using no stylesheet. But, as far as I know, that's probably not what's causing the reporter's symptoms.

Sorry for my dumb previous reply.
The reporter's problem wasn't displaying the @ sign background image, but the blue png image cre8v-webdesign.

At any rate, the page still displays properly in all the browsers I mentioned.

I checked out the page, not only in windows but in other linux operating systems.

For firefox-1.0.7 the page is displayed properly in all OS's except for slackware-10.2.

Looks more like a slackware problem.

Sorry for the trouble----------david
