Firefox Blurry Images

Reset the zoom level for that domain
Ctrl + 0 (zero)
I recently faced a weird issue with Firefox. All the images on my blog were rather blurry as if they were wrongly scaled. So I tried with a new Firefox profile and it worked fine. So there must have been some setting or some add-on that is part of the current user profile that is causing this. I removed all the extensions and add-ons to no avail. Just moments ago, I found the solution on the Blitz Research forum. It turns out to be an issue related to the zoom level for a given website, which Firefox 3.0 remembers. By clicking Ctrl + 0, you reset to the no zoom.

  1. Changing the zoom didn't help me at all. Photos are still blurry on almost every website I go to.

    Firefox better fix this before they lose a lot of customers!

    Somthing too easy and it was driving me crazy ToT.

    However, this helped me a lot.

  6. Thanks! I spent over an hour rewriting my image resize scripts and checking all kinds of stuff. Then I looked at the page in IE and realised it was FF.

    I don't really think this is useful behaviour and should be opt in

  7. How easy to overlook. I never knew that FF preserved the zoom feature setting distinctly for each domain.

    Anyway thanks for the great tip.

  12. Wow, I can't believe it does this on the domain! I was only seeing blurry images on my own website, and when I googled I was trying reset on pages like yours thinking it would apply to the whole browser. But when I clicked over to the tab of my website it hadn't changed. I had to actually do the reset while viewing my website. I wonder where it stores this. FF should probably display zoom levels per domain somewhere if it's going to remember them.
