Hi all,

This following is an example of a thumbnail generated on a forum I help run.

- Works in Firefox 25.0.1 on Windows 7
- Works in Chrome 31.0.1650.57 m on Windows 7
- Works in IE 10 on Win 7
- Works in the Win 7 photo viewer
- Works in Firefox for Android
- Works in Chrome for Android

- Broken in Firefox 25.0.1 on Arch
- Broken in Chromium 31.0.1650.57 on Arch
- Broken when trying to load it into gpicview, The GIMP etc on Arch.

>From what I can tell from here:


Firefox 25.0.1 for Windows appears to be built statically against libpng

Any advice on where to report this, or what the best course of action
is? If any of the devs have reported bugs to the libpng guys before,
then I'd appreciate some help.
