Why does Firefox mess up my digital images?

Dave, here's a weird one: when I look at my photographs via my Web browser in Safari, Internet Explorer or any other browser, they are shown huge, as I expect them to be (I like to pan around to view them), but when I look at the exact same image in Firefox, it's automatically shrunken so that it'll fit in the browser window. But I don't want it to do that. What's Firefox doing and how do I turn this feature off??

I hadn't been aware that Firefox has the ability to do such a neat trick, but you're right, in the Advanced Preferences area, there's an option called "Resize large images to fit in the browser window", as shown here...
