OS Version : Ubuntu 11.10 x64

Browser tested :

Firefox - Not working

Nightly - Not working

Google Chrome - Not working

Midori - Works

Currently, i'm using 64 bit version of Ubuntu and i've installed a few web browsers. Almost all of them does not display an animation of the .gif file but instead it freezes like any other static images. However, midori works instead. Is there any fixes ?
