Summary

Do you miss the View Image Info option on the right-click context menu? You can add it back, but this extension adds some unique features you might find useful.

Restoring the native feature: in the Firefox about:config preference editor, double-click browser.menu.showViewImageInfo to switch its value to true.

Using This Extension: right-click an image and you'll find either:

  • "View Image Info..." -- click to launch a small popup window with info about the image.
  • "View Background Image Info" -- expand the sub-menu and click an image name to launch a small popup window with info about the image.
Note: If you hold the Shift key when right-clicking, the background image detection doesn't run.

Note: Ctrl+click is for Windows and Linux, on Mac, please use Command+click.

Glitches and Missing/Future Features

Occasionally a Save as... link will open the image in the popup window instead of showing a download dialog. For now, please close the window and call it up again. Hopefully I'll figure out what causes that.
