Title: Firefox transparent standalone images plugin
Post by: Soaprman on September 05, 2012, 10:36:07 PM
I have no idea why in Firefox 15 they made it so when you open an image in its own tab it shows on a white background. This was a terrible idea. Shame on you, Mozilla.

Luckily there's an addon that fixes it.

Well, for a long time, the "page" it showed the image on was all white. This was fine.

A few versions ago, they changed the "page" to be dark grey with a bit of a texture to it. This was very good.

With 15, they kept the "page" background the same grey, but put a white box just behind the image. This is very bad. It gives the impression that the transparency on the image was done incorrectly, and looks fugly to boot. I've always used something like that to "test" my images to make sure they exported correctly since I would forget to fix/change transparency settings on occasion. Basically, to me, this was an outright feature removal.

Truth be told, I'm a little unhappy with Firefox's direction in general lately. I still strongly prefer it because of the fantastic extensions I use, but the general "make it more like Chrome" thing that's been going on kind of bothers me. I don't like that they remove features or move the toggles for them to about:config.

If I wanted my browser to be more like Chrome, I'd use Chrome.

And here I sit still using FF 3.6.28 since several Greasemonkey scripts I use for Kingdom of Loathing does not work properly in later versions.

Firefox version numbers have gotten silly as fuck since. Like, I remember when 4 came out and I held out on updating and then suddenly boom they're on version 11 now.

Support ended for 3.6 on April, so you're entering the point where you're running around the internet waving your cock about without a condom for using it.

Seriously, you'll get internet cooties and be that guy.

I moved back to Firefox a coupe of months ago, due to some glitches with this site in Chrome, and I love it so far. It has nothing that I considered to be a necessary feature, and has everything that I expected to be in Chrome to be in it.
