HTTP referrer not sent for iframe request
look at this page. There should be 3 banner, but in Moz we see only scrollbars... This going on with all http://www.linkexchange.ru:8080 banners. With this are affected most of .ru sites.

attaching relevant portion of page. some iframe stuff inside a table. we show scrollbars and 4.x and ie do not.
Must I post here a list of sites this is affected on? 2/3 .ru sites (and 90% of most popular .ru sites) have this issue... Please do smth with this for RTM! To get attention I raise the priority and severity.
Severity: normal → critical
Priority: P3 → P1
todays branch build is capable of displaying the images in attachment 17695 [details] if you first go into 4.x and use view image to get the URL and paste the URL into Mozilla. So the problem is not the RLE images. The problem must either be the iframes used to layout the image or converting the absolute URL used to load the image. Reassigning to pollmann to investigate further.

This looks like a server-side problem with linkexchange.ru to me. Nav does not display the iframes (<iframe> is not implemented in Nav, so it displays the alternate content inside the <iframe> tag), but in IE, they look fine. Here's an example URL: http://www.linkexchange.ru/cgi-bin/erle.cgi?23385?2179 when I load this URL with Moz (or even directly telnetting to the server and requesting it, I get an HTTP redirect to: http://rle-mirror.agtel.net/users/expelled.gif That is a blank GIF image, which is correctly displayed in Nav as a blank rectangle. When I fetch this with IE, a page is loaded. My guess is that the site is doing User-Agent sniffing and showing us the page it gives to "unknown" user agents.

Marking this evangwanted. I don't think I'll have time to do a full investigation for RTM, but am pretty sure that this can be corrected very simply on the server side.
Marking rtm-, based on Eric's comments that this is a server-side browser sniffing issue.
It's pretty easy, really... It turned-out that NN6 does not submit an http referrer for iframe request. With no referrer at all, the algorithm that filters illegal activities in our banner network comes into play - and redirection to expelled.gif occures instead of standard text/html output. S. Bogdanov, RLE dev.team
Thanks email@example.com, I'll look into why we aren't sending the referrer along with requests for iframes. :)

Summary: RLE banners do not displayed in Mozilla → HTTP referrer not sent for iframe request
Now all looks fine. Was this fixed in mozilla or on linkexchange.ru?
It is defenetly not fixed in mozilla since NS6 also shows all banners. Linkexchange did smth on they engine.
Tossing over to tever, who should own this one....
Reassigning bug to firstname.lastname@example.org Changed component to Evangelism.

Working now. To verify, open up the test case. You should see: A page with a black box. Inside the black box, it should say: "http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/showattachment.cgi?attach_id=30018 sent you to me." In Netscape 6, which had this bug, the black box will say: "I dunno."
