It'd be great if a future release had a simple "Hide Image" option. I occasionally use this extension to hide images (choose Custom Dimensions and set to 0x0 pixels). Which is useful when I'm, say, printing an article with a big ad in the middle.
As a professional web developer, Image Zoom has made my short list of must-have extensions. Thanks!
By the way, Image Zoom works great in Firefox 184.108.40.206. The rendering problem with 220.127.116.11 is why Mozilla released .11 only days after .10.
I've used image zoom for quite a while and never had a problem, but as soon as I upgraded firefox, all of the text rendering became messed up, there were big white spaces around images (it was particularly problematic in gmail) and all sorts of other quirky problems. I disabled it and all of the probs went away. I will not re-enable until it is fixed.
USEFUL-USEFUL-USEFUL!!! As for me, this is a very useful add-on. Useful for eBay shopping, cause you can zoom the pics right away. Great for students! It works fine and I like it, no problems at all except of the only one: when you zoom any image on a page, it may cause biiiiig delays in the page scrolling. Anyway, thanks for this great add-on!!!
I honestly have never had a problem with it. I've been doing web design and graphic design for quite a long while, and I do not notice any quality issues that other people are talking about. It's easy to use on the fly and great for quick scaling of icons and the like. While I'm sure the other people aren't wrong in their issues, it maybe be on a computer by computer basis. Try it out, and if it's buggy for you, remove it. If not, enjoy it like I have. 9/10
image zoom broke my firefox when i updated to 18.104.22.168 (first time in 4 years this has happened and it took me (a fan, not a techie)
4 days to figure it out. I was so near to blaming ff and heading of into an opera sunset.
it needs to be withdrawn until it works - sub standard add-ons have the ability to destroy ff hard won reputation
Image Zoom has been very nice for me, BUT... it causes significant performance problems with scrolling. See the discussion section for details.
In particular, Google Maps, Amazon search and many other apps are slowed down so much they become useless.
Since this has been reported since May 2007 and the developer is not responding with fixes or even acknowledgment of the issue (see the bug forum), I have to rate this extension as a zero -- you really don't want it on your system.
i use it all the time. prolly a hundred times a session thank you JASON
I like this extension and it worked well for a while, but like a previous poster said, it was resizing graphics and degrading the image quality. Maps were even worse; there is a grid pattern breaking up the sections of the map.
If a fix is offered I would gladly upgrade and use it again.
great thanx ....
I love this extension for firefox. It's one of the few that I have to install on any first time installation. This version, however, will only install on NS 8 or less. Any chance of releasing a version that will install on 9.0?
I had the same Probs with image zoom.
but viewing the about:config was the sollution:
however the extension seems to influence the value of "imagezoom.defaultGlobalZoom" usually it has to be 100 (percent) in my case the value was 90 and the imgs - except backgroundimgs - were zoomed by -10%
after changing the value everything everything 's fine and works as usually perfect :D
btw. you can 't change this value in the imagezoom-config - screen! use about:config search for "imagezoom.defaultGlobalZoom"
I've used this extension for quite some time. Since before ff1.07. Today I ended up disabling it altogether. ALL images that weren't background images were getting resized about by about 5%...
Quite annoying when you see images that you know are crystal clear getting jaggies and compression artifacts, not to mention, websites breaking apart and loosing the comformity. I don't know what changed the way this extension worked but it's something that should be resolved.
I think most of the mapping sites slice the maps up into smaller squares (grid style, maybe 4x3), and if instead of Google maps context menu zoom you used imagezoom (you did not have the correct setting, above), you'd be zooming only one of the squares, which would have a bad result. I vaguely recall experiencing many versions ago.
Image Zoom is an excellent feature; Unfortunately, ever since the last time I used it, it causes each map tile on Google Maps to zoom 200%, rendering the map illegible. I cannot figure out how to make it work as before. When I disable or uninstall Image Zoom, the problem goes away, but when I re-enable it or re-install it, the problem returns.
Zoom is the only feature that I miss from IE7. Firefox should have had it built in from the beginning. This is great and so much better than IE7! Thanks so much!!
I frequent a website with comics on it. But the images are too small and I was gettin' squinty reading the speech balloons.
Image Zoom has saved my eyes! and therefore My Internet Life. Instantaneously understandable, works exactly as described. Thank you Image Zoom!
All I can say is that this add-on is very useful.
Good job. It is very convenient.
I would have never thought I needed this extension but now I find it invaluable. It works seamlessly like it came with default firefox. Simple to use as well as simply genus.
A must have! Must be a default feature in Firefox... really helpful! Thanks a lot!
I can't thank the author enough for this.
It's stable and I have no issues with it on FF 22.214.171.124 and FF 2.0.
If your eyes aren't what they used to be, you need to get this.
It makes browsing *so* much better. I use it every time I browse.
Thank you Jason!
I have used this in FF 1.5 series, and FF 126.96.36.199\r\n-It has always been Stable and i have never had any problems with it\r\n-I love that it has several image size options for zoom. The favorite being \"image fit\" option.\r\nI have not tried other zoom extensions in FF to give you any comparisons, but this does the job very well. I use it a lot. a must have
This is especially helpful for seeing what type of dimensions a small thumbnail will be once you get the full size version. Also helpful to size down some annoyingly large forum images / signatures.
One thing would make this extension superb, when zooming, it zooms in based on your mouse (Like Adobe Acrobat), rather than zooming in based on the Top Left Corner of the screen.
Sorry for this post. It was meant for the QuickZoom add on
