Mozilla reflows the page ignoring the "missing" bits. This can be confusing 'cause you can click on a link, and Mozilla will reflow the page changing the link under the mouse.

p1-4: nope, this is just not a bug. there are places where we describe this in bugzilla. if you use: <img alt="you should never see this unless the image does not load" title="you should see this when you :hover" src="data:"> then you will get from mozilla the correct behavior (namely the alt text will appear in the document). NavQuirks may or may not do something differently, but it's the page authors fault for not including an alt tag which has been a REQUIRED part of html for years. Erm actually, the reporter managed to report a few duplicates. p5 is a dupe of mozilla should load the page before it downloads [it's an easy bug to find] p6 is a dupe of some reflow behavior which is probably not a bug. please search bugzilla and you will find the issues you've described.
