Image on web page not showing up
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
Description of problem: Image not showing up in Firefox on FC6 i686 system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
uname -a output: Linux solo.lancas.org 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6 #1 SMP Wed Dec 20
14:51:19 EST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Firefox version: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199)
Gecko/20061219 Fedora/188.8.131.52-1.fc6 Firefox/184.108.40.206 pango-text
How reproducible: Very.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Go to web page: http://www.lancas.org/
3.At the bottom of the page just above the "Create Using:" and an image for Open
Office, there is "Hosted by:" and there is supposed to be an image for Hosted by
1&1". However on FC6 with Firefox 220.127.116.11 it does not show up. Using firefox
18.104.22.168 it shows up fine.
firefox 22.214.171.124 does not show the image.
firefox 2.0 does not show the image.
firefox 126.96.36.199 shows the image fine.
1and1 image should show on all firefox browsers.
I see the image on a fully updated FC6 i686 box using firefox-188.8.131.52-1.fc6.
I just updated using 'yum update' and rebooted. Should be fully updated as well.
Still no 1and1 logo.

Any other ideas?
When you say that it does not show the image, do you see an icon for a missing
image, or nothing at all? Also, I just checked the Google cache for the page
(the page itself is not accessible for me at the moment) and the link for the
Can you see the image using this link directly?
The link shows up fine, directly. However, the following test page code, using
the recommended link code from 1and1.com does not.
<P ALIGN=CENTER>Hosted by: <A HREF="http://www.1and1.com/?k_id=13749571"
NAME="1and1Graphics2" ALT="1and1 Banner" ALIGN=BOTTOM WIDTH=140 HEIGHT=28
I'm not familiar with HTML, but you should be able to strip out some of this
to create a simplest possible test case, and then fiddle with it to see if you
can find exactly what is causing the image to be hidden.
I haven't found the offending item, yet.
It is interesting to note that this code snippit works fine on firefox 184.108.40.206
on Ubuntu Linux and on Firefox 2.0 on Windows XP.
I saved the gif file to my home directory. Replacing the source with the URL:
file:///home/rlancas/banner.gif worked even with the entire snippet from 1and1.com.
I then took a look at the 3 special characters in the original URL. The "?",
"&" (%26), and % (%25). I don't think that is the problem, however, since the
same snippet works fine on firefox 220.127.116.11 on Ubuntu Linux and Firefox on
Windows XP. I wish I had access to the XML code at 1and1.com to check and seeh
what they are doing to return the gif file. Anyway, I copied the file
banner.gif to bann?er&%.gif and tried to load it like the URL has specified as
file:///home/rlancas/bann?er%26%25.gif. It would not load. When I went and did
a File -> Open and selected the file bann?er&%.gif it came in as
bann%3Fer&%25.gif. Not an exact test since there is still XML code in between.
However, based on this short test could the ? somehow be passed incorrectly
from the screen input?
Needless to say, I'm still confused but willing to try other tests if you need
Weird, I can reproduce it on RHEL5 with firefox-18.104.22.168-6.el5 and I cannot
reproduce it with epiphany-2.16.0-4.fc6 using the same Gecko library (using
--nodeps and symlink /usr/lib/firefox-22.214.171.124 -> /usr/lib/firefox-126.96.36.199/ ) In
the same time http://banner.1and1.com/xml/banner?size=5%26%25number=1 (URL of
the image) shows just fine in firefox.
Images go through system libraries, e.g. libpng, libjpeg, etc. Maybe one of
those is the culprit.
Works for me (FF2.0&F7).
