Last update was in 2010 -- no wonder
Doesn't work either here. :(
Does NOT work. I've tried it with all Firefox versions and it doesn't show a preview on mouve-over. It showed in earlier Firefox versions but I forgot which version it was. It WAS very useful add-on. I hope, that you'll fix it soon. One star for now.
Now, I'm using Firefox 20! My last used FF was version 25. I'll never use any newer Firefox versions, because Mozilla deactivates nearly all extensions with newer versions since FF 15 and the browser slows down my PC and "eats" always at least 400 MB up to 1,2 GB of the RAM. IMDB Preview was deactivated too; so I'll use always OLDER Firefox version to use all my loved extensions.
Slows down, causes memory leaks and constantly crashes the latest version of Firefox. I suggest waiting for the developer to iron out the issues before loading this.
This used to be a very useful add-on, back when it was maintained. Thanks to the original author, and to matjazxx for updating it from time to time.
I've now moved on to IMDb Info, I hope that one will live longer.
I'd give this five stars, since it would otherwise be a great addon, but there has been a major bug in every version, with every version of Firefox, and every version of Window$. The bug is that the addon freezes frequently, requiring a Firefox restart.
I really miss using the MyMovies on IMDB I just installed the newest update but it still doesn't work with Watchlist :'( only 3 stars because of the missing most important feature otherwise 5
here is newest update that works for FF 6 and is also compatible with new IMDb layout.You'll still probably find some minor bugs, but main function should work very well in most cases.
Too bad that the link for the last update (0.6.5) is already dead!
Hello! Please make IMDb Preview compatible with FX4! I'm waiting with upgrading FX because of your add-on... :)
please let the newest firefox beta support this.. thanks... i really love.. when ever i go i suggest this useful addons... thank...
If browsing an IMDB-link posted on another site than imdb.com the link to the director seems to work OK (http://imdb.com/name/nmxxxxx), but the links to the actors are composed incorrect.
They look like /name/nmxxxxx
Since you can scroll down, I'd love to see more information like the Director (crucial information for movies!)
Don't listen to the comment below, the IMDB preview is also useful ON the website and it would complicate the script.
However the best option you could add is to "linkify" imdb links on website. You know, where's there a link to imdb displayed but it's not linked to the site, so you can't in fact preview it.
Very clever idea, works well.
One improvement I would like to see is the ability to exclude the IMDB site itself from previews since it's a bit annoying while browsing the IMDB site.

Well this is a great add-on and I've been using it for a long time. It is really helpful but I'm missing one thing, Genre of the movie. One line with genre and this would be perfect although that's already very good. Hope you put genre soon in your add-on, because it shouldn't be a problem and I believe that other users would want that too.
A nice add-on.But unfortunately ratings do not appear although it is enabled on the options menu as sh33p3r told nearly 1 year ago...Please fix it.The other parts work good.
That was fixed in the past year. got broken again after another change on IMDb.com\r\nWill repair in the next version.\r\nThanks for reporting! but next time, please do so in the support forum.
Great add-on! Thank you!
Great add-on! Thank you!
Great add-on! Thank you!
IMDb Preview is a no-nonsense add-on that does exactly as it claims. It allows you to preview direct IMDb links to name and title pages in a popup box when you hover over those links. You can specify just the headshot or poster associated with the page, or elect to include some additional text info that can be toggled on and off with a single click. For someone needing to check if a particular actor is the one intended, the tiny thumbnails on IMDb's title pages are next to useless, I've blocked them with another add-on, making for a much cleaner title page, and use IMDb Preview to see headshots sufficiently large to make an identification on an as needed basis. I'll not review the MyMovies integration, as I don't use that aspect, but for what I use it for, it just works. Highly recommended.
Great extension, saves lots of times.
But i can't see movie ratings anymore, it needs an update
This basically saves time when browsing IMDb. If you scroll over an actor it shows you a picture, some of their most famous movies, and a small bio. If you scroll over a movie, it shows a poster, some of the cast, and some of the actors.
By far the best part is that if you are on the page of a movie you can add it to "My Movies", straight to the folder you want. (Just choose the folder and click the star!
