Some animated gifs are not displayed properly

Using 3.5 or older version of Firefox, they are displayed properly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. go to http://s15.rimg.info/62669e6b118c5f4314ea2a9d9663b036.gif 2. 3.

mozilla-central was fixed in http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/pushloghtml?fromchange=75af94f85a98&tochange=3cab7a0c2c3d makes me thing it might be the patch from bug 511689, can't see anything else in that range that could have fixed this in mozilla-central.
Reporter, can you please install firefox 3.7 and see if the gif works? ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/latest-mozilla-central/
Version: unspecified → 3.6 Branch
Yes, it works and all other gifs I know.
OK, well, maybe bug 511689.
This problem has been reported today in the Italian support forum by a user. It happens the same with this image: http://www.startrekitalia.com/publicnew/avatars/dracon.gif Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; it; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100105 Firefox/3.6 but it doesn't happen with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; it; rv:1.9.3a1pre) Gecko/20100116 Minefield/3.7a1pre
both this image and from Bug 540266 are confirmed not to work in 3.6, but they do work in 3.5.7 or on trunk (3.7a1pre)
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
By using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; it; rv:1.9.2) Gecko/20100115 Firefox/3.6 I can display correctly the animated gif http://www.startrekitalia.com/publicnew/avatars/dracon.gif
cc-ing joedrew and asking blocking, probably too late, but i prefer drivers being aware of the problem since it only affects 3.6. we could at least relnote.
Do we have something for the release note? Some animated GIF files do not render properly? Do we know what the common denominator is, here? Definitely want to fix it in a stability update. --> Core::ImgLib, cc'ing jeff and joe for digging into
Component: General → ImageLib
Product: Firefox → Core
QA Contact: general → imagelib
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla1.9.2
Version: 3.6 Branch → 1.9.2 Branch
One common denominator is that both of the gif images were produced with GIF Movie Gear
It would be great if someone could find a regression range for the change that introduced this problem.
Another thing that these images have in common is that they only update a small region of the image in subsequent frames. If I had to guess it might be that we are not using the transparent color from the subsequent frames properly.
Either: Bug 514776 - GIF with out-of-bounds colormap reference causes OOB read in nsGIFDecoder2::OutputRow or: Bug 511689 - (CVE-2009-3373) GIF Color Map Parsing Buffer Overflow Vulnerability -- iDefense [V-jb9pzo6q1s] Both are submitted to 1.9.1/1.9.0 but not to central?
(In reply to comment #15) > Both are submitted to 1.9.1/1.9.0 but not to central? the problems is not central, the problem is 1.9.2. But both of those bugs contain a push-to-1.9.2 comment.
Or possibly in the imgContainer department: Bug 513749 - Mismerge causes issues in animated images

Bug 753 is then the suspect, there is an additional patch that is possibly not checked in...
Bug 513749 never landed on 1.9.2 so I'd it's a likely candidate. I'm trying it out now.
Applying the patch from 513749 fixes the problem for me. People can try out the build at https://email@example.com/

The offending .gif can be found here: http://www.moparisthebest.com/smf/Themes/core/images/pikastaff.gif How long can we expect to wait before this makes it into an official update?
when will mozilla lauches an official patch or another version? I'will use another browser
3.6.2 will have this fix, which should be released around March 30th. (there is no 3.6.1)
