Need "No preview image available" placeholder graphic.

Currently, on both production and Remora's staging instance, if you have an add-on without a preview image, you just see an empty area where I'd expect some sort of soft message about its preview image being missing.

Madhava/Basil: do you concur? If so, probably both ALT and TITLE would read the same.

I didn't see this with "preview images" as a Bugzilla query; sorry if it's already been filed/discussed.

Madhava, could you please pick this one up for 3.2 please and make a placeholder graphic for us? It'd be 200x150 pixels in size as can be seen here:

We don't need anything elaborate I don't think, a simple grey box with text may do just fine.

The reason I am asking is that either we put a placeholder image in place, or I need to write a bunch of special case code so that the preview "img" tag is only written for add-ons that have a preview image. This seems like a waste, considering I have to get rid of it again once we have the placeholder.

Thanks!

P.S. I also think having a placeholder will be encouraging for devs to make/upload one for their add-on because probably hardly anyone wants to have "no preview available" or so next to their add-ons.

What we're doing in the Add-ons Manager is having a 1px black bordered space with about 5px of white padding with the text "No Preview" in it -- we did it that way instead of an image for ease of localization.  What do you think of that approach?

rock your firefox no preview

We use the image in this screenshot for add-ons without previews in Rock Your Firefox.

It'd work (good point about the localization, I didn't think about it), yet that would still need a bunch of special case code in any place where we display the preview image.

Thus, I may just go ahead and use the rock your firefox picture. Obviously, it's only 1/4 as big as we need it (100x75px). So either I center it on a white background, or we make a bigger version.

Justin, do you remember where you got it from?

Ah, nevermind. When I go on an extension detail page in RYFx, the picture is big enough!

FIXED in r10041. We may come up with a different image later, but this one actually looks pretty good with the new layout, if you ask me.

Verified FIXED; note that I spun-off bug 416095 on its tooltip text.
