Automatic Image Resizing Checked In

David Illsley writes: "Yesterday saw the checkin of automatic image resizing (bug 73322) to the Mozilla trunk. 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.

I often wish for this. For example, the forums on <> allow people to post pictures. Sometimes people post pictures that are too big, which ends up making the page wider than my window. I could almost live with scrolling just to view the picture... but the the wider window means all the text on the screen also goes off the right edge. If the browser would resize that picture down I wouldn't have to scroll to read. It would also be useful for when people send me those digital camera pictures that are twice my screen resolution.
