At this moment, to see image dimensions I have to open Properties of an image with right click. It's rather irritating if I have to quickly check sizes of dozens of images on the same page.

Is there any way I can make it show me the image size when I hover it? A simple balloon or similar info is enough. Nothing fancy.

You could use the Web Developer extension.

After installation, restart Firefox and then activate the Display Image Dimensions function from the menu:

You will now see the dimension of images displayed right next to them:

Thanks but I know that. This is how I did so far, but thought there is a hover way to do it. Can't believe such addon does not exist yet. – JoeM Mar 28 '14 at 19:19
@JoeM: I'm sorry, it's the best I could find :( In Chrome you could have this through the Developer Tools: case that helps any. – Oliver Salzburg Mar 28 '14 at 19:21
