FlashResizer is an Extension/Add-On for the Mozilla Firefox Web Browser. The main
goal is to make any Flash content
resizable (Movies, Games, etc), but it includes other enhancements, for example to change the quality which can be handy while using full window/screen modes as provided by the extension for those players out there which does not have such features build-in. At these pages you'll find info and up-to-date news about FlashResizer.
Exciting news about the progress of FlashResizer. First of all, due the number of changes being performed for the next release we've decided that what was going to be the version 1.5 is now going to be 2.0, and thus the next release which will see the light.
The first change we want to mention is the new logo, a major version bump deserves it, and here it is:
Sweet, isn't it? :-)
One of the new features for the next version is the ability to detach (pop-out) any flash element to his own window, being the resize handled by the window itself. Furthermore, taking advantage of that detaching window (which is managed by XUL) we've implemented support for Playlists, which means you'll be able to interact with media content quite easily and pleasant. And, that is not only limited to playlists, it's designed in such a way that you'll be able to handle practically any media content on an standalone way, such as playing online radios, movies, games, music albums, etc ETC! and needless to say, everything configurable from the options/preferences window, where you'll be able to add new playlists and/or media content on a friendly way.

We have made several changes/improvements trying to full-fill your requests/suggestions - more to come but that's what we have done till now for the upcoming version 1.5
- Added Experimental Support to Resize HTML5 Canvas/Video Elements.
- The container div lacked the height parameter, which didn't prevented flash elements from being usable, but in some sites might appeared misaligned. Also, centering and z-Index rules should be properly respected now as well.
- Found some site which hides the document body when either FullWindow or FullScreen are used, being the result a blank page. we'll now ensure the body isn't hidden anymore.
- Changed a little bit the resize algorithm, basically it should work faster since the Flash elements will be increased without shifting the mouse too much to the right.
- Fix: The resizer line might get misaligned if a Flash's container inherits some css's clear:both rule.
- Added a dynamically generated ToolTip popup on the status-bar/toolbar buttons with some info such as the Status or the number of Resizable elements on the current website (if any)
- Added listeners to know when the add-on is going to be disabled or uninstalled, you'll be prompted to ask if prefs should be removed.
If your suggested changes aren't there don't worry, we'll not forget them. However, note that working on this is a laborious job, hence we'll take priority over the people who donated and therefore if you really want your feature being implemented - or releases to come faster - please consider contributing a small amount. Thank you all for your support!
During the last few weeks there have been some interesting improvements, and some bugfixes as well, to name a few:
Keep listening, since we're working on several new improvements.
- Improved the extension's startup handling.
- Added Full Screen Support by clicking RMB (right mouse button) over the resizer line.
- Flash elements which are dynamically created without providing their width/height parameters in absolute pixels should work now.
- Under Firefox 4.* the "Current" button in the Options window will insert the URL for the previously opened tab.
- You'll be warned if you close the Options window while editing a site.
Hey folks, welcome to the new website dedicated to FlashResizer, the Mozilla Firefox Extension which makes possible a feature long awaited by several users, and which Adobe didn't care on implementing, the wait is over folks, you can now dynamically resize any Adobe Flash content, very much the same than any other window, and more! :-)
