Stop automatic Image Resizing in Firefox 3 and 2

Update: This Works in Firefox 3 as well, according to comment received
Firefox resizes graphic images automatically.
For those who don't want Firefox to resize images automatically, just follow these simple steps.

1. Type about:config in the address bar and press Enter.

2. The Firefox configuration window will appear. Look for the preference name browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing and double-click it to change its value to false.

I feel like an idiot for letting this bypass me. All this time I've been looking for something like "image resize". Thanks for the tip.

thank you! - mozilla, take note - this should be in the options list without having to search for it!!!
Thanks a pantload for this. I can never remember what that setting is called, and it seems to reset every time Firefox updates itself.

thank you

Does anyone know, though, is it possible to disable the zoom out on click once the image resizing is off? We user-test jpeg prototypes at work and users are constantly clicking the images, making them zoom out. Yes, we could just take the mouse away, but I try to do things the hard way whenever possible. Thanks, Josh
