nice Little addon but thinks i would like to see 1) .GIF support 2) would be nice to deactivate crop function for small pictures. my picture folders often have both high res and low res pictures wile croping high res pictures works great many small pictures get blury. maybe add an no upscale check box .

Edit
shortcuts dont work because everytime i hit a key it activates firefox text search function.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4). 

1). GIFs work for me. The full list of supported file extensions are: bmp, gif, jpg, and png.

2). The 1x1 check box will display the image at its 'Actual Size' (i.e. 'no up-scale') - the 'Z' key also toggles this check box.

Press the F1 key, or click the question mark (top right), for a full list of the controls.

I hope that helps you,
Ben.

Hi! I'm using FF 17 on OSX 10.6.8 and i've installed this very interesting plugin but I can't access to my folders. What I've to do?

EDIT: error is in file tree.js at line 22 NS_ERROR_FILE_UNRECOGNIZED_PATH
fileIO.initWithPath("\\\\."); I think initial path with 4 "\" can be wrong, and i've try to modify that file but when I save I'm not able to see plug in tools. maybe I've not right permission for editing..

EDIT#2: I've finally modified that value, putting my 'home' name, but now problem is in line 23 :
"var drivesEnum = fileIO.directoryEntries;"

and here I'm stopping because I don't really know anything bout that :)
problably you've to find right way to menage folder on osx with a .js file :)

As it's not really practical to do support issues in the Reviews section of the add-on page I've started a support thread here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=2646461

What would also help is any messages that appear under the Error Console (Ctrl-Shift-J).

Hi,
I desinstalled the add-on, and then, impossible to re-install it.
With some features, like zooming, redefining eventually the features of this add-on, that could give something good.
But missing basic features, and this problem of de-install / re-install

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4). 

There is nothing unusual about the way this add-on is installed. If you are unable to de-install/re-install the add-on I can only guess that the issue is with your particular set-up of Firefox.

works great, just what I needed. No pre-generation of thumbs needed, no clutter, just go.

I do have a suggestion: it would be great if the next image, or even the next few images, would be pre-loaded.
Right now, there's a small delay as the image is read from the harddisk. The time I spend looking at one picture could be used to load the next.
Some web image galleries have nailed this trick to the point that it's almost instant, seems like this should be possible on the local pc too...

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.4). 

Thanks for downloading my add-on and taking the time to comment.

Up to file sizes of two or three meg, I'd say, the delay is very marginal to unnoticeable. Tens of meg in size, I agree, there can be a distinct lag but then I think you have to accept that viewing super-size pictures is going to come with some overhead.

Earlier in the life of this add-on I had a lot of problems with run-away memory. Nowadays, the add-on includes code to flush the Firefox memory in an effort to keep its consumption to a minimum. So, ironically, the add-on specifically guards against retaining images in memory because the associated problems are far greater (up to crippling your pc) than the marginal delay when serving images from what should already be a very fast source.

Perfect thanks !

Can you add a Thumbnail Panel with some options to be more close to a pc viewer:

- Small thumbnail panel on the right/left and preview on the right/left side(
- Large thumbnail panel which take all the windows
- number of thumbs/row visible
- color background
- infos displayed (titles/size, etc) ?
- choose order
- Go to the pc folder
- Remane picture by "F2"

And to complete these request:
- Option to open the preview in a small popup alway in front.
- Movie preview (your icon is a camera...!)
- Memorize the last folder view by an icon:
( it is possible with a right-click on the icon folder, but icons shall be fine )
- Memorize our preferences
- Add icons to show next/prev pictures (in addition of the right/left click)
- Quick Search in our (selected folder)

Yes that is a big list but i think your addon is very usefull ;-)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2). 

Thanks for downloading my add-on and taking the time to comment.

It was always my intention to create a simple to use, and clutter free picture viewer, so, having thumbnails is something I specifically avoided. I also think that adding thumbnails would add a really big overhead to performance.

However, there is another add-on called Picture Browser: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/picture-browser, which I believe does include that feature. Maybe worth your taking a look.

Works great Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This works great. It takes a little tinkering to figure out how it works, but it's pretty simple so didn't take long.

I would like to suggest some additions that would be nice. The ability to set it so every so many pictures it holds the frame for a set longer duration. For example every 10th picture holds for 5 seconds. All the rest change every 2 seconds. Or even the ability to set it so it randomly chooses the frame to hold for a longer period.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2). 

If you ever need a reminder as to the controls, pressing the F1 key will toggle a panel with some help text.

I'm not sure that the idea of including some kind of pattern in the delay when displaying the pictures automatically would have a very wide appeal. However, a workaround for you would be to include duplicates of the pictures where you want to extend the delay. So, in your example, having the same picture twice would give the appearance of a 4 second delay, or three times would give 6 seconds.

Basically, you should be able to create a set of pictures that could simulate any kind of pattern you like when running the slide show automatically.

How to launch? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This may be a good extension... but how does one launch it? I gave up after half an hour, as I couldn't figure out how to launch it. There is no "option" to launch it from add-on menu, it does not seem to add any menu, button, or change the screen when I navigate to an image folder, nor do I see anything when I open an image. And yes, I did restart my Firefox. I strongly recommend that the author adds a how-to-launch info in the description.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.2). 

There are a couple of ways to launch the add-on... there's a 'Slide Show Viewer' link on the Tools menu (short-cut: Alt-T), and also an icon that can be added to the Navigation Toolbar, or the Add-On Bar, under Customise.

Brilliant Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This extension is brilliant and since 1.1.0 does exactly what I want it to do.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.7). 

I have to confess that automatically advancing the pictures isn't something I'd use myself, however, as I've now seen this mentioned a couple of times (here and elsewhere) I've added in some 'Auto' controls where you can set a time (in seconds) to automatically increment the pictures.

There is now a new version: 1.1.0 ...it will not have been reviewed by the Mozilla Add-ons editors at the time of typing but it is there.

You will find that the new features are somewhat hidden because I don't want to add 'clutter' to the existing controls - one of my objectives is to keep things simple to use. So, there is now a strange looking graphic under the spin-box. Clicking this will reveal some Extra Options including the new Auto check box, and Delay spin-box where you can set the number of seconds to wait between each picture before automatically advancing to the next picture - hopefully this all works in a reasonably intuitive manner.

In the same place I've also added a Loop check box which will cause the pictures to loop (forwards or backwards) instead of stopping at the last, or first, picture.

Cannot 'See' all drives Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I can view all partitions on the main drive - C:, E:, F: and USB Drives. I cannot access the 2nd HD except the root D: (no folders). Any Idea why? Thanks ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------








After Ben's reply, I moved the pagefiles.sys from root to PAGES/pagefiles.sys. The drive is now viewable.

Thanks Ben!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5). 

This is not a problem I have encountered, indeed, in the screen-shot for this add-on the C: and E: drives are on separate hard drives. Some system folders are inaccessible, for example the 'System Volume Information' folder, but I'm guessing you also have regular user folders on your 2nd hard drive.

Are there any errors appearing in the Error Console (Ctrl+Shift+J or Tools, Web Developer, Error Console)?

Do you have any oddly named files or folders in the root of D:?

The code that forms the folder tree does have some error handling and my best guess is that it is encountering something on your D: drive that is causing the code to back-off before it gets as far as a valid folder.

If a 'plus' symbol does not appear against a drive then the code has either properly determined that there are no valid folders on that drive, or it has bailed-out before finding a valid folder having encountered something very unexpected on that drive.

By 'very unexpected' I mean something that the Mozilla developers possibly weren't expecting either!
