How to Show Image Properties On Mozilla Firefox 3.6

Date: January / 26 / 2010 + Comments: 2

Firefox 3.6 has removed the option to see Image Properties in the contextual menu when you do a right click. Now you have to use View Image Info or View Page Info to see the properties, but this opens a huge new page of the Media tab, which is too bulky.

For me as a web designer, web developer and blogger, to see the properties of an image was a very useful function not found in any other browser. I was able to see alt, size, width, dimensions, height, resizes, title, URL, location, and so on.

Some complaints about this decision are already appearing in the forum of

Mozilla says that they removed the Properties option due to the Bug 513147 (Get rid of the “Properties” context menu item).


I hope they will bring this back, but for the moment the only solution is to install this Add-On:

:download: Element Properties 5
Returns the ‘Properties’ menu item that was removed in Firefox 3.6 to the context menu.
