View Enlarged Versions of Thumbnail Images with Thumbnail Zoom for Firefox

By Akemi Iwaya on January 31st, 2011

Are you tired of thumbnail images that are just too small to make out clearly on your favorite websites? Say goodbye to frustration and hello to easy viewing with the Thumbnail Zoom extension for Firefox.

To view an enlarged version just hover your mouse over the image. You can see the extension at work here on the How-To Geek Facebook page. Keep in mind that the size of the enlarged version will depend on the size of the original image uploaded.

The extension works with thumbnail images on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Amazon, Picasa, Flickr, LinkedIn, Hi5, Twitpic, deviantART, PhotoBucket, Tagged,, Wikipedia, YouTube, and Google Images.

Note: Works with Firefox versions 3.0 – 4.0.*
