This might be a no-brainer to some, but just in case you’re as dense as Murdoc is…
After wiping and reinstalling my PC, I couldn’t figure out how to turn off automatic image resizing in Firefox 2. My previous installation had been an upgrade from an earlier version of FF, and I had disabled the “feature” in the options menu of the earlier version. But when I installed FF2 clean, no option was to be found in the new menu.
So here’s how to do it:
1. Open FF2
2. In the address bar enter: about:config
3. Copy and paste this into the filter line [or scroll down to]
4. Double click the preference to change the value from true to false

UPDATE: I was also having trouble getting one of the Microsoft security updates to install with Automatic Updates. It was the Security Update for Media Player 6.4 (KB925398). Why I needed this, I don’t know. But it wouldn’t install. I kept getting “Update unable to install successfully” errors. I finally downloaded the standalone update from MS and it went in fine.
