Image Forward

A webextension to easily go through images embedded on or linked from a web page.


If you are on `page_one`  that contains 3 images, you can press
`Ctrl-Shift-Space` to load `image_one` as if you had right clicked it and
chosen `View Image`. Press again and `image_two` is loaded (without having to
go back to `page_one` and click on it), again and `image_three` is loaded. One
more press will bring you back two `page_one`. At any time you could have
pressed `Ctrl-Shift-B` to go straight back to `page_one`. Images are only
loaded if they are bigger than what's configured in the add-on's options,

Risk impact

Image Forward requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Image Forward if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Image Forward has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Works o.k. - actually the shortcut Ctrl+Shift+B will not work on Firefox / OSX so you cannot break and get back to page one...

Simple and effective addon, with its companion "Enhanced Image Viewer" by the same developer constitutes an almost perfect mode to have slide show with series of pictures opened in fullscreen mode and background of preferred color. Thanks Firefox Quantum 57.0.1

It does exactly that I was hoping it would do. Show a picture without the surrounding page and/or do the same with a number of picture links on that same page.
