Automatic Image Resizing Checked In

When turned on (it's disabled by default) it shrinks any image that is bigger than the window to make the whole image visible. When this is done, the cursor over the image changes to tell you that if you click, the image is restored to full size. You get the best of both worlds! This currently doesn't have a prefs UI in Phoenix but if you put the appropriate pref in you user.js file, it works just fine. This is one of the few features in IE that I have seen and liked and it's great that Moz now has it too. Thanks guys."

To enable this feature in Mozilla, go to Edit > Preferences > Appearance and check the 'Enable automatic image resizing' box. If you're using Phoenix, add the following line to your prefs.js or user.js file:

user_pref("browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing", true);

Phoenix Help has more information about editing Phoenix configuration files.

Hmmm, this could have useful applications for my Palm Pilot. Sometimes I just want to save my current page - AvantGo is too much effort, and things like Pendrago are too buggy and too much effort. Perhaps with this feature I can resize my window to 160x160 and decide if it's worthwhile saving it. Just need to figure out how to view in on the device. I normally copy and paste in to Word and use Documents To Go.
