Old Default Image Style

Change is not always good Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's wonderful how the internet can bring people together from all over the world to create a better internet browser. A shame that it only took 16 votes to add the "centred over dark background" image feature and all suggestions to add even the slightest control, like turning it off, fell on deaf ears.

It's surely democracy speaking when nearly 5300 people install an addon that removes this feature, or gives the slightest control over it. As someone else said before, I've signed up specifically to add myself to the 34 reviews that have made this addon fourth in the "Top Rated" list.

I had recently installed the "Pic Style - Checkerboard" addon to show images against a checkerboard to give a clear indication of their transparency. The "centred over dark background" update completely shoved that aside like a big bully so I was delighted to see that installing this fix really did fix everything. I was concerned that it would override the checkerboard as well but it didn't. Perfect! :)

The "centred over dark background" may look nice but if I'm just viewing an image, I want to know it.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.1-signed). 

Pic Style - Checkerboard

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I found this by chance and I loved it instantly. Such a simple concept and really helpful when looking at semitransparent images.

Sadly, when FF upgraded to 11, this addon was completely overridden by the new "centre over a dark background" 'feature' However, installing the "Old Default Image Style" addon resolved it and I can see this lovely checkerboard again :)
