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.

Ok, I went to Microsoft's website, and on this page (<…it/ie6/part3/c09ie6rk.asp>) there are two pieces of information:

The first one involves disabling the image toolbar (that gives you the print, email, etc. functions). To do so, just put a meta with http-equiv="imagetoolbar" and content="no" into your pages.

The second piece says this about image resizing: Automatic Image Resizing works only when users navigate directly to pictures. Internet Explorer cannot resize pictures that are embedded within HTML pages.

I fail to see how your comment applies to IE as it exists, though it might be valid about how the feature has been implemented in Mozilla.
