    I've pretty much used Firefox since I converted from the PC a little over a year ago. I was familiar with the browser and I trusted it more than IE so I naturally continued using it with OS X. After reading all the good things about Safari 6 in this forum, I thought I would give it a fair shake. However, I do have a small issue with images.

    I am a huge aviation buff (being retired AF) and spend some time studying aviation photos looking for subtle variations between aircraft of the same type, but Safari automatically resizes images and I can not do the control- scroll zoom that works in Firefox. Being able to zoom isn't THAT important, but I really want to disable the auto resize.

    Question: Is there a way to disable auto resize on Safari 6 and Mountain Lion?

    Thanks for your input,

    Don't know about disabling it completely, but:

    1. After the image is resized, if you click on it with the mouse it will go back to its original size. Click again, and it's resized again.

    2. with the trackpad, you can always "pinch to zoom" the page, or in this case the image. You can also use Command + / - to zoom in and out.

    I'll give it a try...I liked the ability to hold Control and swipe my magic mouse to zoom...can't seem to get that to work with Safari 6 but it could be operator error.
