Is there a way to stop Firefox and IE from auto-resizing large images?

Posted on 2006-04-08

When I open a large image in an iframe, both Internet Explorer and Firefox resize it to fit the window space, and need the user to click on it to see it actual size. Is there a way around this?

    In FireFox v1.5, goto Tools --> Options --> Advanced --> General (Tab)

    Thanks for the reply. Sorry if I wasn't clear - I need a way to do this in the page, so that the user won't see the image scaled down, regardless of their settings.

    salted, if you are asking how to do it in HTML, then you can use absolute width specifier in STYLE or IMG tags
