Current Setup:
Windows 7 64-bit
Firefox 8

Making a request to a straight up image (ie:, Firefox requests the image twice.

Initially, when I discovered this, I was running through an internal development environment and was able to see the webserver get the request twice. I setup wireshark and confirmed that FF was indeed requesting the image twice.

I setup IE 8 and the latest Chrome and confirmed that neither of them make a double request.

I then installed the lastest HTTPFox and made a request to an image outside of my control ( ... 78229_.jpg) and was able to see the image get requested twice.
