The concept of centering the image was fine but adding a black background was completely unacceptable. This add-on is spot-on and simple, fixing a "bug" that really shouldn't be a bug. WHY fix something that aren't broken!
Thank you very much.
Simple. Wasn't asking for much and so this does exactly what I want.
works fine, thanks.
I just wonder why mozilla didn't add us the option to choose whether to show images centered or in top-left alingment.
There are many things I don't like in the newer versions of firefox, And again why didn't they add an option to change it back like the way it was in 3.6, damn i miss that version.
Much Thanks to Dagger (developer) for fast reply here and double Thanks for Dagger's steadfast attention.
I have nothing against black backgrounds but I mostly end up removing them for stand-alone viewing and editing, when necessary.
Meantime, Much Appreciation to steeviebops for that (obvious) remedy. Should have tried that first. Dagger will hopefully develop a suitable fix. Meantime, I'll just apply your solution.
Again, very grateful to both.
With regard to the dark background returning in Firefox 18; it's easily fixed. Go to the addon's Options in the Add-ons Manager and specify #FFFFFF as a custom background colour.
этот чудо-плагин делает такую маленькую вещь, которую пол-года не могу сделать куча разработчиков мозиллы. стыдно должно быть =\
I would never use automatic updates for anything; instead selecting them from Yast in OpenSUSE, which gives one the ability to revert: I'm not sure whether to go back to 14 yet because of this --- and the fact restored sessions on 15 jumble the tab order --- but I may...
The background is back to black, the image is still centred as I chose in the extension, but I'm sure that's just the Firefox default and the browser is ignoring the extension.
In developers' manic need to force their defaults on users --- witness the new no longer optional default of 'Tabs on Top' --- I'm wondering if Mozilla has had it with extensions that allow users' choice.
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Absolutely brilliant fact that it also adds a class to both the BODY and IMG to enable users to style it using userChrome.css or Stylish.
However, I would recommend that you add built-in options to allow users to customise the background with an image instead of the colour. Better yet, just replace the entire background-color parameter with background, for greater customisability control.
That makes a ton of sense, but the downside is that background doesn't accept completely the same syntax as background-color (the leading # for hex colors is not optional -- hopefully that's the only difference.) I can fix that with a bit of parsing, but I'm worried I'll get it wrong and break some people's config.
Ah well, I'm sure they'll e-mail and complain if that happens...
Awesome add-on for us who love the old default style. Also the developer replied quickly after I submitted a bug report. Good job! :)
Easy fix for a stupid Firefox change. Thanks.
Indispensable add-on for those who use Firefox as a working tool. It is very difficult to work with a black background, because the bad shows boundaries of dark images and transparent GIFs. It is unclear why Mozilla does these awkward changes. Thanks to the authors add to the fact that they retain this browser most convenient.
Thank you. I was surelly also not happy with the new totally no sense black background that made it hard/impossible to see transparent images...
Hope Mozilla stops with these new crap ideas that are ruining latest Firefox versions... I did only recently updated from fx 3.6 to 13 and took me some time to "sort" a few things... with addons / userChrome.css... :(
I signed up so that I could review this add on. Not happy at all with dark background and happy to find a fix.
I was so aggravated when Firefox updated and changed the way linked images are displayed. I hunted up and down trying to find a setting to let me change the styling of the image viewer. There wasn't any information anywhere.
I happened to find this add-on after hunting around for a good while. This add-on does exactly what it's intended to, it displays images in a white background that is justified to the right like most every other browser out there.
This answered everything I was looking for. I have absolutely no complaints about this plug-in at all. If you're confused why images are centered with a black background and you want to get rid of it, download and install this add-on, you won't be sorry!
The dark gray background when using "View Image" was driving me crazy, this addon is the perfect and only solution I've found to bring back it back to white and now even centered.
I'm sure mozilla devs think it's a feature, but th eback background is nothing more than a problem. This is an awesome fix I wish that wasn't needed. The only good thing about the updated way single images are displayed in ff11, is the fact that they are centered.
This fixed not only how images are displayed, but images on a couple of sites I maintain. Like many others before me have stated I find the Firefox improvements to be anything but, and really appreciate your giving me back something I can live with.
Thank you for this addon. I was forced to upgrade my browser from Firefox 8 to 12 to use an addon update, and it screwed up the way my images are viewed.
I've been using the internet for over 15 years and stand-alone images have always appeared in the top left of the browser on a white background. I don't know what possessed Mozilla to change this behaviour now.
Big thank you for fixing the ignorance of Firefox developers! Works perfect.
Works with Seamonkey 2.9 if you know how to edit install.rdf : ).
is the best solution. Thanks!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
For some reason Firefox ignored my telling it to never auto update and did a "security" update changing the color behind images in the process.
Just what I was looking for!!
Does exactly what it says it does. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
