Ok, that was a little melodramatic.  The issue is Firefox's apparent inability to automatically resize imbedded images (like when posted on forums and such). So huuuge images don't get resized.  IE also has the same problem.  I can post an example if you don't get me.

Question is, is there an add-on for firefox to address this issue?

Resizing only work on single images not pages. Anyway, try look around at userscripts.org http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/2430 May be some take care of vbb etc. http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/7780 claims to do so but I could not get it to work on a vbb forum.

[fanboy] Or... you could just use Opera, and enable 'fit to width' which will resize all text and images to a width specified by you. [/fanboy]

Edit - Don't think it's what you are looking for, but I'll leave it here anyway

What about this one?

Actually it is just what he wanted. Install Image Zoom 0.3, restart - then go to about:config and type in imagezoom. Locate "imagezoom.autofitlargeimage" and make it true, doubleclick. Restart. Test page/image I tried previously does not break anything. Default is manual autofit, right-left click - dont know why this setting in hidden.

Yeah, I always wondered about that too. This should be in the options. I'll try sending the author this thread.

I tried that - it slowed Firefox down quite a lot and screwed up the display of my website.  Had to change back.

Unfortunately I think you are right - may be reason why they keep setting hidden Wink Im wondering if it is a conflict with other extension or just build in bug. Search their forum http://imagezoom.yellowgorilla.net/forums/ for "image resize", may be "autofit" - where I found the setting. Did not find any complaints. Worth a test cause it does seem to work.

Cthorpe, just wanted to post on here and let you know that ImageZoom was exactly what I wanted.  After enabling the hidden feature it does what I wanted.  I saw someone posted that they had problems with it, but I don't.  I don't notice a performance hit at all.

Plus I like that you can fit and unfit large images with the rightmouse then leftmouse and rightmouse then middlemouse button presses.  Thanks again for the pointer.
