FlashResizer is a SeaMonkey extension that makes any flash element resizable. It adds a nearly-unnoticeable two-pixels-width vertical green line next to flash objects, which what you'll use to perform the resize, furthermore double-clicking that green line will automatically adjust the flash element to the browser window's inner width/height.
Since this may looks like a vague explanation (even when it's basically all what it does), it may worth explaining how the add-on was born. First of all, I want to mention i've started developing this as a PrefBar button under SeaMonkey... and now converted it to an FF extension overnight, my first ever FF extension i have to tell.
Why I've created it, is obvious... it's amazing being able to freely resize any flash movie/clip/game/whatever. On my very own case, I certainly got annoyed with the flash players available at some websites which does not even allow to switch to full screen mode (neither a button nor context-menu option), so.. after visiting that site quite often, i thought.....wtf...it shouldn't be too hard to dynamically increase that object's width/height, and indeed it wasn't hard at all, a little headache there on how to proportionally keep aspect ratio, but i've reached some quite simple solution which should fit ok for every size... (My SM Button handles resizing following 4:3 and/or 16:9 aspect ratios, which does not look ok if i try to resize some banners.. but for a public FF extension i don't feel that would be nice, and hence changed it to be based on the mouse movement).
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· Added ToolBar Button
· The "vertical line" (resizer) element will now be created over the flash element, rather than appended to it. (eg, a flash element of 600x400 previously become 602x400, now it will be of the same/original size) This should remove the feeling that FlashResizer does not work on some specific websites, when what really happened was that the flash element was covering the browser's width or its container)
· Fixed some weird issue under FF4 while using offsetParent (dblclick)
· Using FullWindow->dblClick on a Flash element which within an IFrame will automatically move the element to the top-level parent window, thus really making it Full(Browser)Window rather than covering the IFrame only..
· Some minimal fixes/improvements
