How to Make Firefox Display Full Size Images

A friend ask me if there is a way his browser will display images in full size. Well, fortunately for him it is possible with Firefox.

By default, Firefox resizes large¬† images to fit into the the browser’s window. When you search for an image let’s say on Google images, you’ll have to click on the image to view it’s original size. This is not very handy and sometimes annoying if you are browsing a lot of large image files.

To disable resizing follow the steps below:


1. Type about:config in the address bar

2. Scroll down and look for browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing or just type in browser.enable in the filter bar.

3. Double click on browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing to change it’s value to false.

4. Restart your browser.
