Press the CTRL key while clicking on View Image in context menu instead of installing an add-on; Can click SHIFT instead if you want to view the image in a new window instead of a new tab.
Could you add this function on addon?
Press Shift 50 times per a day is boring.

Good extesion, do what it said
It's pretty cool, but could you add an option that goes under the view background image option that says open background image in new tab? If you could do this it would be a great help.
Love this addon, should be FF default
and a lot more people should be using it!
Popup Alert says "not compatible with Firefox 51.0.1" ("Open Image In New Tab could not be installed because it is not compatble with Firefox 51.0.1").
—your support website still being under construction I tried dev.next.gen.nz, but got "Server not found"
Should I just wait a little bit or disable compatibility checks? Thanks!
No option to open in a next tab after current
Doesn't open multiple images selected
Excellent Addon and Great time saver!!
There were times when saving an image, lets say, from a dating site, it was impossible to do with any other way.
But with "Open Image In New Tab" addon, I can do this with no hassles at all!
I have added this to my Top Favorites!! :-)
Does what it says
Works like a charm in Firefox 36.0.1
Does not work properly with Firefox 35
Works with no problems on latest beta version, it's exactly what I needed. Especially liked the option to turn off tab focus.
I use this plugin religiously, but, after updating to the latest Mozilla browser I discovered it's not compatible. Anyone else noticed this? Can anyone help? It also will not work with Palemoon browsers version 25 and later.
Works as expected in Firefox v 27, and even has a very useful option to open in background tab (no focus).
If you combine it with Tab control then the tabs will open next to current tab and not at the very far-end of the tab bar.
Not all images can be opened via middle-click (nor simple click).
All non-clickable images fall in this cattegory (the ones that don't have a link atached, like the ones on "in-page-pop-ups galleries"). They are often resized and if you want to quickly view them in full size you would have to keep opening tabs and pasting their adress one-by-one.
And if you don't want the tabs to be opened at the very far right then read what i've wrote above.
Not at all sure sure why I tried this. Default behaviour in FF is to open image in next tab with middle mouse-click, somewhat more efficient.
Not only that, but it opens the image in new tab to the far right of the window (in my case, yards away), so you have to grub around to relocate yourself.
I suppose one could use the addon/always-right. But I can't be bothered.
I think I'd hoped it might be actually useful by acting to:
1) open the new adjacent to parent tab
IMNSHO default FF behaviour to open far right is unclever.
maybe an option for those who prefer default silliness.
2) over-sized images resized to fit.
(Optionally?) (With some notification?).
Retaining default behavior to toggle full-size on left click.
3) maybe resize small images to limit of clear visibility, also.
But it doesn't.
I just want to +1 at what Walterio said, it's the only thing that holds back this addon from being perfect.
Anyways, thanks for your addon :)
Really great addon. Exactly what I was searching for!
But there is one little minor thing that you could probably improve:
When the tab with the image is opened, it opens on the very right hand side. It would be better if it would open to the right of the tab you are currently looking at - especially when you have many tabs opened. I don´t know if thats possible... Just thinkin.. :)
Anyways great addon!
it does the job <3
Middle clic on View Image do the trick.
Дополнение не ставило пред собой огромных задач, а лишь маленькое упрощение для некоторых. И все работает как надо
user selevo - не понял задачу расширения! Вы говорите о ссылках, а расширение имеет в виду обыкновенные картинки. Если вы пожелаете открыть такую картинку в окне, вам придется или перетащить ее вручную на панель вкладок или в контекстном меню будет доступна опция открыть эту картинку только в данном окне.
Расширение дополняет меню пунктом - открыть простую картинку без линка в отдельной вкладке.
в FF встроено Ctrl+Click открыть в новом табе
Shift+Click открыть в новом окне.
a must have
This is a great addon: would it be possible to create an 'open background image in new tab' in the right click context menu?
