Firefox is not sending full size images how do I fix this?


Using Mac 10.5.8 Google Gmail and Firefox 15.0.1 to send email with an image attachment,the image is downsized and I find nowhere to set Firefox to send it actual or full size. When sending with my Apple Nail program there is an option at the lower right corner of the image to force it to be sent actual size, How do I force Firefox to send image attachments full image size?

This sounds like a problem with Gmail. You can follow these steps to be sure:

  • Open Safari
  • Visit GMail
  • Log in
  • Try sending an email with an image attachment

If you see the same problem, you will know that the problem is related to GMail, not Firefox.
