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.

#36 I confused you

Hey, I think my subject title confused. It was a hang over from a different post. As it stands I have a Palm Pilot, which AFAIK doesn't run Pocket IE (thankfully). What I was interested in was whether this feature could be useful for resizing a web page on my desktop to 160x160 before saving it from Mozilla for upload to my PDA. You see, there are occasions when I'm reading a web page on my computer and think that it would useful to put it on my PDA (e.g. directions, weather, maps, etc). This would be a lot less effort than things like AvantGo. Oh, and I don't have or want a wireless connection for mobile browsing.
