    I call it the "Crack Dealer" business model.Give it away at first,then start charging once people are addicted. Doesn't really work with non-narcotic stuff though,as evidenced by PB's rapid decline.
    I just need one more tool,just one!

    I just took a look at the shop made tools thread and all the pics are blurry. If they spent half as much time trying to make their site a better site as they do trying to extort money out of their users they would probably be ahead of the game.

    Interesting. Old FF is good, new FF is fuzzy. Does that suggest there could be an add-on to FF to show the fuzzy pics clearly? After the fashion of the patch that allowed us to see the pic instead of the fuel gauge?

    Time to look around...

    There are no stupid questions. But there are lots of stupid answers. This is the internet.

    25 Mb is nothing. They already are capsized, now they are sinking. Just a few more months and they will be gone all together.

    I for one have never put any filters or add-ons on any of my FF browsers. JR

    This might not be Photobucket's fault at all. It's possible that Firefox is scaling a thumbnail for your screen. The photos all look clear to me and don't have any watermark, but I gave up on FF and moved over to Brave (the former Mozilla guy who got fired for donating to something that pissed off the Social Justice Warriors runs the place). Firefox used to take up more and more of my computer and memory until I just had to kill the application. I have more windows open with Brave now and hardly any computer OR memory usage.

    I'm also running Firefox ESR 52.9.0 on my decade old computer with Vista. It definitely appears to have a bearing on why I don't see any watermarks and all the PB hosted pics are clear for me also.
