Facebook PhotoZoom

Codrut Nistor March 30, 2011 11

Back in the days when I got my Facebook account, most current users had no idea about it. Now, Facebook is slowly heading into that deadly area of social networking: too many users that don’t bring any value to the community and, even worse than that, a lot of spam. Apart from these two issues, I also hate Facebook thumbnails but, fortunately, there’s a solution to enlarge them on the fly, namely Facebook PhotoZoom, today’s subject.

Since the name should say it all, I think there’s not much to say about what this Firefox addon does, right? The numbers look like this: current version of Facebook PhotoZoom is 1.9, released back on the 6th of December 2010, having a rating of 5/5 stars after 79 user reviews and almost 650,000 downloads. Best part of it all – Facebook PhotoZoom 1.9 works with both Firefox 3 and Firefox 4, so everyone should be able to use it, even those still waiting for their favorite plugins to become compatible with the last Firefox release before upgrading. Sweeet!

Other than the above… there’s nothing special to say about Facebook PhotoZoom, since this is one of those Firefox addons that you install and forget about, because there’s nothing else you should do – just enjoy its benefits. I don’t know about you, but I’m already enjoying it a lot and I ca even bet that some of my friends will love this Firefox addon more than Facebook itself! ;)

    It says that the addon has been removed by an administrator? What is the reason for that?

      I have no idea about the reason, could be that it’s no longer working properly after the last Facebook update?

    Should still work fine, it works on another computer of mine with it still installed. Such a pity, it was quite useful.

      @laeeq khan: For me it seems, the Firefox Plugin was disabled in the extension catalogue by the author itself, but I may be wrong with that…

    Also missed the plugin when I had to reinstall my FF. But you still get it here, and it’s still working (FF v7.0.1):

    i really like this add-on – and hope that someone (the author, for example) would upload it back to the extension gallery of firefox.. see here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/facebook-photozoom/

    all in all – great add-on :)

    Hi All, I am the author of the original Facebook Photo Zoom extension for Chrome, which this was based off of. I do not know who wrote this old FF version, nor what happened to it, but good news: I’ve just released an OFFICIAL FB Photo Zoom for Firefox on my website which will now be kept up to date with Chrome & Safari!


    @Codrut, you should update your post with the new URL.
