Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; it; rv: Gecko/20080404 Firefox/

if I try to obtain details by click on the image in this webpage:

Firefox get me this message:
"L'immagine “” non può essere visualizzata poiché contiene degli errori."

(Impossible to view image "” because it has some errors)

But with IE 7 I can view it ...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to link on the image to enlarge it
3.Firefox show the error 
Actual Results:  
Not images shown 

Expected Results:  
Images shown !!!
Weird, I tested this on Windows XP with Firefox and latest trunk nightly but I see no error.
I did the step above but everything was with the expected values.
I try to run Firefox in safe mode ad it work fine, so I disable / enable extensions until I found the wrong one: SKYPE extension for Firefox create the above problem, images not loaded and "loops" on opening new sites.
I've installed Skype version, I try also with another Pc with the same program versions (Firefox and Skype) and enabling / disabling the extension by click on the image extension on the toolbar recreate the problem.
I'll write an e-mail to Skype to fix this problem.

A lot of other people found this bug and the workaround at the moment is to disable Skype add on in FireFox.

Thanks for pointing that out.  I've added a mention of the Skype extension to the kb article.

Thanks for contacting Skype, too.  I hope they fix this problem before Firefox 3 is released!
