Maybe one of the Mozilla developers found this site:


Apparently there's a company claiming to own a patent on one of the
technologies behind JPEG image compression. The JPEG group (yes, I know,
redundant phrase) is fighting it.

Seriously, though, it could be that Mozilla's JPEG decoder doesn't support a
feature you used whn exporting. What options did you have set on the image
in Photoshop's export tool? Progressive? Optimized? Try playing with the
export options.

What MIME type is your Web server returning for the image?

Did it work in previous releases of Mozilla?

Subject: [thelist] "WTF, Mozilla?!"

I just said the subject line really loudly, but without the acronym... :)

My header graphic loads in every browser except Mozilla 1.0... AFAIK, it's
just a standard .jpg file exported from Photoshop. I right-clicked on the
image, and chose "view image" from the menu only to have this error show up:

The image "http://www.yoursite.com/etc/header.jpg" cannot be displayed,
because it contains errors."

That's not particularly helpful. Anyone know what the heck is going on here?

(site url masked since this is intranet stuff...) :(
