    I wanted to disable the highly irritating "automatic image resizing" function in Firefox. So I followed these steps:

    I went to >

    1. about:config in the browser
    2. Entered "browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing" in Filter field.
    3. Double-clicked the single result and changed it to False.

    No effect.

    Everything still gets resized if it's a large image. I also closed and restarted Firefox.

    Any suggestions?

    Can you give us an example (website) of an image getting resized?

    Really strange. I had initially gone to the Bing > Images > screenshots watchmen (to see movie clip images of this film), and they kept resizing, even after I made the changes. Now - they're not resizing. I did nothing in the meantime. But it seems to be working. (y)
