Version 2.1rc4 has one last bug fix before the official release:

Pleas send feedback to .

Version 2.0.0beta1 120.0 KiB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.0 - 15.0a1

This new beta release adds several new features (since 1.7.3).

New Features and Changes:
  • Special mouse cursor when link target is same as popup image: A special mouse cursor indicates when the target of the hovered thumbnail or link is identical to the popped-up image. That tells you that clicking the link won't show you anything new.
  • Save Enlarged Image As (hot-key 's'):
    • now saves the image in its original file format and size. No longer converts it to uncompressed png.
    • now disables rather than hiding the menu item when it's not available (so menu items don't move while you're using the menu).
    • now keeps the Save Enlarged Image As menu item active even after the pop-up has closed.
    • the Save As dialog's title now includes the image's caption text so you know which image you're saving.
  • Faster display: pop-ups will now show an image as it loads line-by-line instead of only in large chunks. Helps with slow sites or connections or very high resolution images.
  • Changed toolbar icon when Thumbnail Zoom Plus is disabled to make it easier to see.
  • Bug fixes, including problems on Firefox 15.0a1.
Please send feedback (good or bad) to . In particular, I'd like to hear whether you find the new cursor feature useful, annoying, or it doesn't matter either way to you.


Version 1.7.3rc1 114.0 KiB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.0 - 15.0a1

Important bug fix:

This fixes a bug in 1.7.2 and all of the 1.7.2 betas, which caused Thumbnail Zoom Plus pop-ups not to appear at all for users who don't have the Thumbnail Zoom Plus toolbar button in any toolbar. Version 1.7.3 and 1.7.3rc1 are be identical.

By default that button is automatically added to the toolbar so the majority of users didn't see the problem. But users who happened to have removed that toolbar button weren't able to use Thumbnail Zoom Plus anymore when 1.7.1 upgraded to 1.7.2.

This problem is now fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks to David Kump for running tests for me.

Version 1.7.2rc3 114.0 KiB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.0 - 15.0a1

Bug fix.

Version 1.7.2rc2 114.0 KiB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.0 - 15.0a1

Bug fix.

Version 1.7.2rc1 114.0 KiB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.0 - 15.0a1

No change since 1.7.2beta2; just marking as a Release Candidate.

I expect this version to be identical to the upcoming official 1.7.2 release.

Version 1.7.2beta2 115.0 KiB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.0 - 15.0a1

  • Added preference "Pop-up Takes Keyboard Focus":

    When on (the default) the pop-up takes keyboard focus from the web page so you'll realize typing is for the pop-up's hotkeys, not the web page. The pop-up closes when it loses keyboard focus.
    Turn off if you're having trouble with the pop-up closing immediately or if a web page's pop-up menus close when the Thumbnail Zoom Plus pop-up appears (eg on certain Linux machines).
Supported sites:

Version 1.7.2beta1 113.0 KiB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.0 - 15.0a1

Version 1.7.2beta1 has these changes since the offiical 1.7.1 release:

  • Added the ability to globally enable/disableThumbnail Zoom Plus:
    • Added global "Enable" check-box to the top of the Preferences window.
    • Added hotkey 'x' to toggle the global "Enable".
    • When Thumbnail Zoom Plus is disabled, you can still use it if you hold down the "Key to maximize image" (default: Shift) while moving into the thumbnail. Then press 'x' to re-enable Thumbnail Zoom Plus.
    • Changed the toolbar menu into a toggle button and a menu. Click on the button to turn off TZP for all sites or click again to turn on. Or click the arrow to the right of the button for the menu.
  • Added preference "Scrolling triggers pop-up". By default this is Off, but if you turn it on, scrolling the page under the mouse will trigger pop-ups to appear (which was the behavior in older versions of Thumbnail Zoom Plus). Enabling is useful on sites which aren't too dense with thumbnails (eg; disabling is useful on sites with very many thumbs (eg Google Images).
  • Pressing up, down, left, or right arrow key while popup is displayed will now scroll the web page. Used with "Scrolling triggers pop-up" on, lets you view successive thumbs' pop-ups by simply pressing the "down" key to scroll the page. Limitation: doesn't scroll html frames.
  • Pressing Return or Enter while the popup is displayed is like pressing that key on the page itself, typically activating the hovered link.
  • Non-alphanumeric keys pressed while the pop-up is displayed are now passed through to the web page.
Supported Sites:
Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed: now honors disabled site checkboxes more strictly. Previously, disabling e.g. Facebook or Youtube disabled site-specific rules for those sites but didn't prevent generic rules in Others or Thumbnails from applying. Now if you disable a site, no popups will appear from that site at all.
  • Fixed: it sometimes re-displayed the popup when slowly moving the mouse out of the thumbnail.

Version 1.6.1beta1 94.0 KiB Funktioniert mit Firefox 3.0 - 13.0a1

Below are the changes since 1.6.0. Please send feedback to me at .

New Features:
  • Caption: when the Caption preference is enabled, the image's tooltip or other caption text is shown at the bottom of the popup and the tooltip itself is prevented from displaying.
  • Popups now show text like "75%", indicating how large the popup is compared to the full-resolution image. When the add-on doesn't show a popup because there isn't enough screen space, temporarily shows how large the thumbnail is compared to the full-resolution image so you know if it's worth opening the image in a new tab, for example.
  • Added preference "Default Zoom (%)". Images will be enlarged this much larger than their full resolution (if window size allows) so you can see the image even larger. Note that you may see more image compression artifacts when this is larger than 100.
  • If the page is zoomed up larger than 100%, Thumbnail Zoom Plus will display its images enlarged at least that much too (if possible). Works will with the nosquint add-on, for example.
  • Added preference "Show Partial Image After (s)": the popup will display this many seconds after the image has started loading, even if it hasn't yet finished loading. Defaults to 1.0 seconds. Lets you see part of the image faster, but you may see only the top half of the image at first.
  • Now works on "cross-site thumbnails" by applying a site's rules even when on a different site, based on the site hosting the thumbnail image.
  • Additional features are actived using new hotkeys (see below). This includes the new ability to open the popup in a new tab or window.
Hotkeys: While the popup is displayed, you can use these hotkeys (without or with Control or Command):
  • "Escape" closes the popup
  • "c" toggles the "Show caption" preference.
  • "p" opens the Thumbnail Zoom Plus "Preferences" dialog.
  • "-" (minus) and "+" (plus or equals) decrease or increase the zoom size of the current popup
  • "0" (zero) resets the zoom size of the current popup to 100%
  • "d" saves the current popup zoom size to the "Default Zoom (%)" preference for future popups.
  • "a" toggles the "Show pictures using All available space" preference.
  • "t" opens the popup image in a new tab; useful when the image is larger than fits in the current window.
  • "n" opens the popup in a new window (an alternative to "t").
  • The "t" and "n" hotkeys also work while the "too small" indicator is displayed (which looks like a couple blue boxes at the upper-right corner of the thumbnail). Thus if your window isn't big enough to show the image, you can press 't' or 'n' to see it in a separate tab or window, which you can then scroll.
    • Note that when Firefox displays the image in a new tab or window, it may zoom out by default, requiring you to click to see its full size. You can change that via a hidden Firefox preference: go to about:config, type "resizing" the page's Filter field, and set "browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing" to "false" if it's currently "true" by double-clicking it.
  • "Shift" temporarily lets you see the image larger by turning on "Show pictures using All available space" and setting zoom to 200%.
    • You can also use this by holding down Shift before you hover over a thumbnail.
    • You can change it to Control or Alt in the Preference "Key to maximize the image".

New/Improved Web Site Support:
  • Added (for profile images)
  • Added
  • Added
  • Improved support (eg links)
  • Improved uses higher-resolution image (for some posts).
  • Now supports and other sites which use IP.board
  • Improved support for Google Reader, the Feedly add-on, and other sites which link thumbnails from other sites such as flickr.
  • Added support for image hosting sites which use "images/thumb/#"or "images/mini/#" in URLs and have ful-res images as "images/full/#" (when Thumbnail preference is enabled).
  • New "Thumbnail" preference shows enlarged version of the thumbnail image itself if no higher-resolution image is available; and if "Default Zoom (%)" is greater than 100 or if Shift is held down while dragging onto the thumb. This preference defaults "off" since it causes more popups, and can be distracting.

Bug Fixes:
  • Fixed display on Ubuntu Linux, where the popup was sometimes displaying as a narrow vertical sliver.
    • It should now work automatically, but if it doesn't, try turning on "OS Bug Workaround" and please let me know at . I expect the preference isn't actually needed, and it will be removed before 1.6.1 official release.
  • Improved popup positioning, especially when it's covering the thumbnail. It now tries to minimize the amount of the thumbnail which it covers (if possible).
  • Hotkeys (including Escape) now work on pages with Frames, including Google Images.
  • Fixed "zombie memory leak" (which had caused Firefox to temporarily use too much memory).
  • Speed up Thumbnail Zoom Plus and reduced the amount of CPU time it uses.

Renamed / Removed Features:
  • Renamed preference "Maximize image size by overlapping thumbnail" to "Show pictures using all available space"
  • Removed preference "Images Opacity" (let me know if you found this useful in the past).

Known Problems:
Special Thanks to the users who sent feedback, including Rysiek, quantumlemur, mixxster, Pham, kraake, cameron, Andreas, John Z., fanolian, bwProductions, and all the beta testers.
