Firefox only: Clicking through multiple product images while shopping on Amazon is really a chore. PictureFox, a handy Firefox add-on, opens all the images in a single gallery so you can stop making with the clicky-clicky all the time.
If you don’t shop at Amazon often, then you may not realise what a pain—literally—slogging through products with tons of images can be. Nothing makes your repetitive-stress injured mousing finger ache more quickly than clicking on dozens of images to compare the features of a purchase you’re trying to make.
PictureFox installs quickly and follows you every time you visit Amazon’s website. Just click on the arrow the add-on displays along side a product’s main image, and all its associated images — including user photos — all pop open in a single gallery page. The add-on also overrides Amazon’s native “Zoom Viewer” feature and opens up images up to 14 megapixels in high resolution so you can see details before you buy.
To manage PictureFox, just choose Add-ons from Firefox’s Tools menu. Then select what options you want to enable: Use image-flow gallery, show customer pictures, and allow multiple gallery instances. You can also uninstall the add-on from here, if it’s not working out for you.
