erm.  I could have sworn I already posted this, but I'll post it again.

IE Tab.  It uses IE's rendering engine within firefox's frame.  You can switch back and forth at will, or you can designate specific sites to always use IE's engine.  I use it for this place and Moby Games and a few other sites that up-scale pixels.  Works well for me.  I've been coming here with Firefox 3 for months.  Same browser, same behavior, just different rendering engine for the pages / layouts.  Give it a shot.

This is positively preverse, but I will do it. Curse you FF developers for making me bring back IE on my computer on *any* capacity.

Hm no I didn't like it. I've decided to use BBMagnifiy, a small utility easy found online. It does this:



Which is fair enough. I wonder if I'll need more zoom than this.

An alternative to BBMagnify would be to use Windows XP's Magnify

Oh I didn't know about that one! It's better since it has levels of zoom already built in. Thanks. Keeping it.
I still wish FF team would fix the issue so I can just use the my imagezoom extension as usual, but this'll do in the meantime, without any yucky IE stuff.

If anyone else has a Mac (probably like 2 other people), you also have a built-in zoom function, just hold down control and spin your mouse wheel up or down. I believe you can adjust the settings in preferences -> universal access.

I have used Opera for years. I find it better than Firefox by an order of magnitude. Mouse gestures are a gift from the gods.

I changed to Opera too after all this IE / FF hassle. So far I've liked it, there are few minor issues that bug me personally but they're nothing compared to image blurring with other browsers. Which crash and have bugs as well :) So it's a win-win.

Just jumping in to say, I just switched to Opera and I'm loving it.  Very versatile.  I might just buy it for my Wii now!
