Attached image SpaceBackground.gif
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0
Build ID: 20121128204232

Steps to reproduce:

Viewed a website.


Actual results:

The background GIF image does not display.  Instead a message appears claiming the GIF is broken.  No browser (including Firefox) or image editor has ever complained about the image before, and no other browser or image editor complains about them now.

"The image "fileOrHyperlink" cannot be displayed because it contains errors.


Expected results:

The image should be displayed as the page background.
This behavior occurs in both Windows and MacOS versions of Firefox.

Both Chrome and us reject this image. I'm inclined to wontfix this, though I haven't done any investigation as to why we're rejecting the image.
Based upon comment 3, no need to track. Please re-nominate if this occurs on other sites as well.
It does work in Safari and Preview.
The images also work in IE and in every image viewer or editor I have tried (other than Firefox) regardless of platform.
Does this bug reproduce in the current Firefox Nightly?
