Although there are many diverse reasons that Mozilla developers give for not allowing MNG support to be added in Gecko, they propose it can be supported by an imagelib extension, and that an image type finder (similar to the plugin finder) could be used to find the appropriate imagelib extension when a user goes to a page that has a MNG image on it. <<https://bugzilla.mozilla.…how_bug.cgi?id=18574#c672>> The same idea could be used to add support for JPEG 2000 <<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36351>> and TIFF <<https://bugzilla.mozilla.…rg/show_bug.cgi?id=160261>>
