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.

"PS. I wonder why Mozila saves the 'Title' of the post (which is stupid), in addition to the Login and PW. :-"

It assumes the first text field is the username. The Password Manager just grabs all the text fields and password fields and saves them.

"PPS. It would be much better if mozillaZine prefilled the title of replies with the title of the replied-to post. :-P"

It does. The Password Manager overwrites it.

This could be fixed by altering MozillaZine, of course. It would be nice to have a persistent login system like MozillaNews has - it would allow for more customisation in other areas too (My MozillaZine, anyone?). But that would require substantial changes to the PHP/MySQL backend so it isn't going to happen any time soon, if at all.
