When you open a tumblr image into a new tab or window, this extension auto-loads a larger image version if it's available.
This small utility allows you to easily load and view the large version of images on various tumblr.com blogs. Sometimes trying to zoom an image will just redirect you to a different site! With this extension running, just right-click and choose "Open image in a new tab". It checks if there's a larger version available on tumbr and will navigate to it if there is.

Hi, As You probably know Firefox now also supports web-extensions. Do you plan on porting this addon to Firefox?

When I open an image in another tab, I have the image I opened up (not resized, the link not ending in 1280) and when I highlight the icon for the extension, I get a message that reads "The tumblr-hirez extension will not run twice on the same image so the back button will work correctly." However the extension hasn't run at all and I am forced to manually enter 1280 on the link myself. This is happening commonly and needs to be fixed.

Not working on Mac OS X Sierra, any problem with Windows as well?

Doesn't seem to work reliably anymore in Chrome 57.0.2987.98. Can anyone confirm?
- (2013-04-18, v:1.0.2) Dave Dugal: Tumblr now using CDN for images (UPDATE)
Note that this only happens when using another extension called "HTTPS Everywhere". Apparently by forcing Tumbler to use secure HTTP, the URL gets rewritten and your extension fails to recognize it. I've uninstalled "HTTPS Everywhere" and now everything's fine. Sorry for the false alarm.
- (2013-04-18, v:1.0.2) Dave Dugal: Tumblr now using CDN for images
I'm not sure if you noticed this, but recently Tumblr is "outsourcing" their images via a CDN provider. Now, instead of serving images from URLs like: http://data.tumblr.com/0bf53bb43dba1d8c8c8071046a0b48d3/tumblr_mkq2xxzHIn1qargfho1_500.jpg they show up as: https://gs1.wac.edgecastcdn.net/8019B6/data.tumblr.com/0bf53bb43dba1d8c8c8071046a0b48d3/tumblr_mkq2xxzHIn1qargfho1_500.jpg This fools your extension into not replacing the _500 with _1280.
