Not quite sure what you mean about a "Show Picture" option, but if you right-click on any image the context menu gives you "View Image" which will open it in a new window.

I think what he/she means is that sometimes in a webpage, one, or two of the images will not load. On ie you can right-click it, and use the show image option, which I'm guessing reloads the individual image, as opposed to having to reload the entire page. It's a useful feature.

I don't think Mozilla & Firebird have it, so it's a Gecko problem. Pity, it's a very nice feature.

Offline browsing can be forced if you select Edit --> Preferences --> Cache --> Cache comparison --> Never.

Actually I thought the original poster was referring to a "Toggle Images" button like the one in IE.

BTW, it is reported that the current CVS version has offline browsing support.

Does anyone know if the current win-embed-build of mozilla has a show picture option that we could hook up?

About the images.

I like how Opera has that button that specifies:
-Always load images
-Always load previously cached images only
-Don't load images

Ditto those requests. Firebird does have an extension that is supposed to make individual images load by right clicking but I, and many others, can't get it to work.

Make it just like Netscape 4.XX with an "images" button on the "navigation toolbar" (click that and it loads all images on the page/frame when images are turned off in preferences) and a "Show Image" Which loads a right clicked image from the menu.

I still do most of my research using Netscape for that reason alone . . . It would be nice to chuck it entirely. And, lest someone ask, I am still using dialup; but would still use the image button to eliminate just having to look at a lot of crap advertising.

Make K -Meleon as useful as Netscape 4 . . .

I also need the feature like IE's "show image" or Opera's "Load Image"

Now it's possible for firefox to add "Load Image" feature by installing Image-Show-Hide-Load.

Thus, I guess it's possible to add this feature to K-meleon.

"Show Picture" from IE is the only real deficiency I've found in Firefox so far. They've really got to add that. It's a travesty that IE actually has ONE better feature than Firefox. ;)

IE's "Show image" option to reload a broken image is really a usefull feature. I have also frequently missed it in Mozilla and K-Meleon. As far as the latter is concerned, there's an easy way out:

1) Paste the following lines into your macros.cfg (I suggest somewhere in the "IMAGE & ZOOM MACROS" section)

# Force reload of a single image
ReloadImage{
Open("javascriptsad smileyfunction(){var t='".$ImageURL."',k=document.images;for(var j=0;j<k.length;j++)if(k[j].src==t){k[j].src="";k[j].src=t;}})()");
}

2) Paste the bold line into your menus.cfg (about line 800)

Image{
%ifplugin macros
macros(ZoomInImage, Zoom In Image)
macros(ZoomOutImage, Zoom Out Image)
-
%endif
&View Image = ID_VIEW_IMAGE
Copy Image = ID_COPY_IMAGE_CONTENT
Cop&y Image URL = ID_COPY_IMAGE_LOCATION
%ifplugin macros
macros(ReloadImage, Reload Image)
macros(SaveImage, Save Image As...)
macros(EmailImageURL, Send Image...)
macros(ImageCache, View Image Info)
macros(ImageInfo, Image Properties...)
%else
Save &Image As... = ID_SAVE_IMAGE_AS
%endif
}

3) Restart K-Meleon

As far as I've tested, it works...

Here is an updated version of my macro (it will now work with frames and with JavaScript disabled):

# Force reload of a single image
ReloadImage{
$macro="ReloadImg"; &JSEnable;
}
ReloadImg{
Open("javascript:function chkImg(e){var t='".$ImageURL."',i=e.document.images;for(var j=0;j<i.length;j++)if(i[j].src==t){i[j].src="";i[j].src=t;}}function chkFrm(e){var f=e.frames;for(var j=0;j<f.length;j++)chkFrm(f[j]);chkImg(e);}void(chkFrm(top));");
}

I have posted an updated version of my Reload Image macro to the wiki.

The macro "Reload Image" works fine and it is a useful new feature.
Thank you.

The show picture option doesn't always work for me. The drop down window that has show picture will act like it is reloading but I still get the little box with the little red x in it. Is there some security setting that needs to be changed?

No, Dean. My macro should work under all circumstances.

What you describe will happen, when the referenced image does not exist. A non-existing image of course can't be displayed, how often you may reload it...
