Filing this bug on getting <feImage> to work with SVG images.  Note that this uses separate code from SVG's <image> tag -- the code in question is in nsSVGFEImageElement::Filter(), here:

5510 nsSVGFEImageElement::Filter(nsSVGFilterInstance *instance,
5511                             const nsTArray<const Image*>& aSources,
5512                             const Image* aTarget,
5513                             const nsIntRect& rect)
5526   nsCOMPtr<imgIContainer> imageContainer;
5527   if (currentRequest)
5528     currentRequest->GetImage(getter_AddRefs(imageContainer));
5530   nsRefPtr<gfxASurface> currentFrame;
5531   if (imageContainer)
5532     imageContainer->GetFrame(imgIContainer::FRAME_CURRENT,
5533                              imgIContainer::FLAG_SYNC_DECODE,
5534                              getter_AddRefs(currentFrame));
Note that imgIContainer::GetFrame isn't implemented yet for SVG-as-image.

testcase with PNG image

Here's a simple <feImage> testcase using a PNG image. (This works, since it's using a PNG image rather than an SVG image.)

testcase with SVG image

Opera (which I'm using for comparison) isn't displaying the SVG image when it's hosted on bugzilla, so I'm re-attaching the SVG-image-version with a data-URL-encoded SVG image.

See also bug 455986 which may be a superset of this.
Comment 6 User image Daniel Holbert [:dholbert] 2010-09-21 09:01:38 PDT
Hm -- bug 455986 seems to be primarily about something else, actually.  Based on its first comment & its first testcase, it seems to focus on "make <feImage> work with xlink:href="foo.svg#someId" -- to get behavior like <use>.  I think it makes sense to keep that bug separate from this one.

So really, we should be detecting the type of <feImage>'s URI (just whether it contains a "#" character).  If it looks like a reference to some element's ID, we want to behave like <use> (bug 455986), and otherwise, we want to behave like <image> (this bug).

Seems to work now in Firefox 7.
Comment 8 User image Daniel Holbert [:dholbert] 2011-11-01 15:20:56 PDT
WFM in Firefox 4, in fact
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:2.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/4.0

As noted in comment 0, at the point I filed this bug, imgIContainer::GetFrame wasn't implemented yet for SVG-as-image. (and feImage relies on GetFrame)

So, this was almost certainly fixed by
