Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox-3.0

when using Menu -> View -> Zoom -> Zoom In/Out, images on web page are also rescaled. 
the images are obviously not rescaled using nearest neighborhood algorithm, but the image has less quality than image rescaled by gimp using linear algorithm. see http://hafik.zuban.name/public/ff/
I don't know which algorithm is used, but linear would be sufficient.
