Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b1pre) Gecko/20080904035000 Minefield/3.1b1pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b1pre) Gecko/20080904035000 Minefield/3.1b1pre

As the summary says.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to any page that has an SVG embedded in it.
2. Choose Tools > Page Info > Media
3. Select the SVG from the list of addresses.
Actual Results:  
"Media Preview" shows nothing or a broken image.  "Dimensions" shows 0px x 0px.

Expected Results:  
"Media Preview" should render the SVG.  I think some SVGs have a nominal size, otherwise just size to fit the preview window.

Bug 448630 is to get <audio> and <video> preview in Page Info, maybe alterations to Page Info's Media Preview that it needs will help this.

I can't believe no one else has reported this bug, but searching bugzilla for SVG media, preview, page info, etc. found nothing.
I don't see a dup and the request seems reasonable so confirming

Page Info > Media supports SVGImageElement, but SVGs that do not fall into this category are not rendered.

Bug 515549 allows Page Info to render Flash and other <embed> elements, so when that's landed, the first case in the bug url will be fixed.  That leaves SVGs that are <svg> tags and <object> tags.

In the near future, I may have time to work on this, but if someone else has time before I do, I wont stop them.
Depends on: 515549
Assigning to me, when Bug 515549 is done, I will start on this.

Since the work on Bug 515549 is put on hold for design discussions with User Experience.  I don't have time to work on this, and I am unassinging myself from the bug.  There is a possibility that in the future, I will work on this again, but it would be quite some time before I do.
