I'm having a bunch of problems with images in Firefox 3 not showing as their true size -- with and without setting their width and height in css.

Here's a screenshot of the same image in Firefox and Safari.

viewing it here, the difference is clearer: http://content.screencast.com/media/7171383a-8344-4845-baf9-91d5aaab2807_437b05f7-8662-48ef-807e-3bbb8d5c5d81_static_0_0_00000059.png
See how the one in Firefox is getting squished?

Anyone else experience a similar problem?

are you setting the width/height in the html as well?
Code: [ Select ]
<img src="img.gif" width="200" height="30" />
If you don't do that sizes are some times up for interpretation. Also make sure your using the image at its actual size.

Without seeing the html, I can't tell for sure, but you may simply be seeing the difference between how firefox/safari apply image smoothing to small images (where there isn't enough room to really apply smoothing).

Figured it out.

Know how users can change text size in the browser? Well unless "View -> Zoom -> Zoom Text Only" is checked in FF, it'll zoom (and shrink) the images as well.

Not sure if this is new to FF3.

ahh yes full page zoom... It occurs in safari 3 now as well and probably Opera though I haven't checked.
