Image Zoom

Great to View Entire Photos on Facebook *&* for People with Bad Eyesight Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Image Zoom will zoom most images on a page and get out of the way when not wanted.

Image Zoom is a great add-on because you can see the Entire Image, at a much larger size (that you set under preferences), WITHOUT having to click on the Image to see it enlarged, usually in another tab or window.
Also, you do NOT have to click something else to get back to what you were reading or looking at before.

With Image Zoom you just hover the mouse arrow *or* track pad arrow over any part of the image and it gets bigger !!! ( Thank you ! )

To return to the original image, *or* go an associated link, etc.,
*** Remove the Arrow From the Image ***

If the enlarged image covers the original image, and you want to return to the original image, *or* go an associated link, etc,
***.Click Once While Viewing the Enlarged Image ***
Immediately, the image goes away, and you can see the original image as it was before enlarging it.

If you want to copy the Image Zoom image you need to use a separate image capture application.
With one, you can copy the Image Zoom image by using the applications settings.
Treat the Image Zoom image as you would any other image.

Image Zoom has made a HUGE difference to me when viewing images on Facebook where photos, drawings, etc. can show only a part of the full image.
This quickly shows me the entire photo without taking up a lot of my time.
No click and go to another tab to see it, close the tab, find where you were before.
Now I just put that arrow over the image and Image Zoom shows it, usually much larger than the original.

My eyesight is getting worse, so a larger picture is better, but not if it gets in the way or makes reading things take a lot longer.
That is why I told you to click on the Image Zoom, enlarged image to get back to the original one you were looking at, but was too small.
This click is not included in the description and can take awhile to find and understand.
At least it was that way for me.


* My one complaint *
Image Zoom does not enlarge some pictures.
I am not sure why, but some smallish ones are not enlarged.
I think these are images that display fully on the page, at 100 percent.


*** My one request ***
PLEASE have an OPTION to Remove the Percent Enlarged from the lower right corner of the image when expanded.

Why?

01) It is annoying.

02) If you take a picture of it, if that area isn't black it is almost impossible to remove the Percent Enlarged without making a blurry or odd looking corner.

03) It looks terrible to have the Percent Enlarged show when printed.
....... I did NOT think the Percent Enlarged would show when I printed out some map directions.
....... I was terribly embarrassed.

04) It looks terrible to have the Percent Enlarged show on your images when giving a slideshow of photographs of your work.

05) I forget at my age, so when I see some little print, I have to get a magnifier to see what it is.
....... It usually turns out to be the Percent Enlarged nonsense.

*** Please note that I have used this to enlarge MY photos, images, or map directions, not other people's photos or images. ***

I took off 1 star because of all the work needed to remove the Percent Enlarged, in the lower right corner, to be far too time consuming to give this add-on a 5 star rating.

Emoticons for Facebook

Shows only a few emoticons at a time.

Big Emo For Facebook

Don't Waste Your Time, It's Still NOT Working ! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It's failure to work hasn't been fixed as of 09/09/2015.

Like other reviews the word "emoticons" appears, at bottom left of page, when clicked shows nothing except the "Hide This" clickable text.

So, I give this 1 star.

Bluhell Firewall

Bluhell Firewall Is a Heavenly Haven for Video Watchers! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Bluhell Firewall blocks the ads that Ad Block used to get rid of.
Bluhell Firewall plus No Script are a super duo tag team. Although, No Script takes getting used to.

I have since disabled Ad Block as Bluhell Firewall does the job better.
The worst I've had to do is click a banner that states "Please turn off your ad blocking software.", to remove it.

I do click ads on the sites to support them, but being forced to watch ads, again, and again, for the same product, really spoils the mood of a video.

Thank you so very much for making this add-on.
It is a must have for video watching.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.3.0.1-signed).

I gave is 5 stars because it looks good and I had to choose a rating.
I'm not going to rate it low unless I know there is a problem.
This one may be MAC OS X Maverick related.
