How to disable automatic image resizing in Firefox
Tim Russell, the man behind the disabling favicon tip for Firefox, sent us another good Firefox tidbit today:
“The worst thing about Firefox is undoubtedly that any image larger than your browser size is automatically resized, which has the effect of distorting pictures and generally being annoying. For some reason, Firefox didn’t include the ability to turn this on and off in the standard preferences, but you can do it easily with the about:config dialog, as follows…”
Disable automatic image resizing in Firefox
- In the address bar, type
- Type “resizing” in the search filter at the top
- Change browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing from true to false
- Restart Firefox
Once restarted, Firefox will no longer allow the browser to resize images on its own.
Thanks again Tim!
