Works fine using the nvidia 275.09.07-1 package using nVidia 9600 GT.
However the image is black, which is, I suppose, a bug in Firefox. I'm
seeing this issue with some images straight from the camera for a
quite a long time and only in firefox. Actually, I can open 30+Mpix
images in firefox without problems.
