Tired of squinting at the screen when you see a picture? Sure, with most thumbnails you could click them to go see the picture at a better resolution. What if though, I could save you that step? Thumbnail Zoom Plus is a Firefox plug-in which shows a full-size image popup when you hover over a thumbnail or image link.

Would you like to zoom in on a webpage with tiny text? Maybe you need to make a website with huge text a little smaller? Thankfully, Firefox makes it really easy to zoom in and out of a webpage to make it more readable. You can do it with the keyboard, your mouse, the menu or via the toolbar menus.
I couldn’t be more blunt with the headline, and it pretty much tells the entire story here. Pixlr, a great online photo editor has now got an extension that will work with Firefox. With it, you have access to import and edit any picture you find into the Pixlr web site.
So who really needs Pixlr? It is a great alternative for us normal people out there who may not need the entire Photoshop suite of tools, just a simple and easy to use editor. Having it online and with easy access via Firefox makes it an even handier tool for the web developers out there to have access to. The only thing you need to have to make it work is Flash.
One more nice feature about the service is it is super quick. Just playing around with the editor on its own, it loaded up in under two seconds easily. To pick up the Firefox add-on for Pixlr, go check out the Firefox Add-on site. To learn more about the Pixlr editor, be sure to visit pixlr.com.
There are several add-ons for Firefox that will change the way you can interact with images and galleries, and joining that clan of extensions is OutWit Images. It is a simple, straight to the point image browser for the browser. It does all the catching, saving and auto-browsing for you.
The thing that makes OutWit Images different than other image browsers, is it allows user to save images right to the hard drive and browse from there. From within Firefox, you can collect images from various web sources with just a simple click of the button.
The sleek design (as you can see above) is also worth pointing out. It can also be personalized by selecting different background colors and views for the thumbnails themselves. Here is a little more about this extension from the developers:
The images can be dragged and dropped into the collection basket, “the catch,” from which they can be saved directly onto the computer, displayed in a slideshow, or shared with others. It also offers a variety of other options including filters for viewing and saving the images, as well as, visible source information.
Well, I put out the request to one and all to see what you have done to customize Firefox, and I got tons of responses. It is always interesting to see how others are using Firefox to fit their needs – and how creative people get when it comes to moving around the basic toolbars and general interface of the browser.
Here are the best of the bunch! Thanks to everybody who submitted!

Digg’s image section is pretty cool – and is turning up more interesting topics than I thought it might. Here are some of the latest and greatest you get when searching for Firefox related photos and pictures.

Seen any other good ones? Let me know!
I am about to promise and deliver to you something that many people can not do – a Picnik with no ants – just photos.
Add a menu options and a toolbar icon to make importing images into Picnik easier. This extension adds a menu option when you right click on images to make it easy to pull the image into Picnik for editing. Firefox 2.0 users also menu options and a toolbar icon to take screen shots and import them into Picnik.
The thing that brings the magic together is the Picnik extension for Firefox. Might not be the time to uninstall Photoshop just yet – but give it some time and you might re-think that idea.
How many times have you said to yourself, “I really wish Firefox was a screensaver too!”. Come on, tell me – I won’t tell anybody else. Well ok, I haven’t ever wondered that myself but just in case you ever have, there is now a solution to use. Tryout the FoxSaver extension for Firefox.
Here’s a link to the offical web site for more information:
Overall I’d say this is a neat idea for a Firefox addon, but not sure if it is useful just yet. They do have a big selection of neat photos – but i would really like to add my own – or have it pick up on my Flickr account (or insert your favorite photo host here.) Do you think this extension shows promise too?
