Forum:Firefox 3 users
Users of the new Firefox 3 should be aware that the browser now scales images if they are not being displayed at their original size, and the resampling adds a blur. This is critical if you're taking "detailed" screenshots of items from the G.E. database.
For example, look at the bucket of sand, and in particular at the detailed image on the right. If you take a screenshot of this and zoom in closely, you will see the blurring. The way to get around this is to right-click the image and select "view image" to see it isolated in original size. Better yet, you can just select "save image as" instead, and edit it from there.

I've also found with Firefox 3 that if a link is in bold, the normal colours of red and blue are reversed, but fixes itself if you mouse over the link. Has anyone else found that or is it just me? Hurston 10:00, 26 June 2008 (UTC)
- Mine seem fine in that respect - I can only suggest checking your colour settings! Maybe some Wikia skins/themes include weird colours - try not allowing website to use their own colours. Leevclarke talk 09:36, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
Personally I'm still back on FF2 (I generally like to wait for a few rounds of bug fixes before jumping into the newer stuff). But as for the "Save image as" command, I find that to be the *only* way to go when dealing with images. I highly recommend that others contributing images follow the same method as that way the transparency already present can be preserved. ~

- Well most images are taken from the game itself, for which we cannot simply save images, and have to do a screen dump then edit from there. The detailed item images on the GE database pages are a blessing, but just make sure we're treating them properly for best quality. ;-) Leevclarke talk 18:31, 30 June 2008 (UTC)
