Firefox won't zoom images

Firefox won't resize images while zooming a page. Or anytime, really.

When I zoom in on a page in Firefox (Ctrl+), the text scales as I expect, but the images don't change size at all. Only one particular laptop acts this way. It's Firefox 3.6.6 on XP. I think it's been this way for a while, perhaps since installation, which would have been a few point releases earlier.

I would like the images to zoom with the page text, like it does on my other machines. I've tried Googling for guidance on this, but it's been fruitless so far.

Uncheck View->Zoom->Zoom Text Only.

Perfect. Thanks. I should have seen that, but I'm glad you helped me out.

Geez Louise, I love this site. I never knew there was a zoom feature built in to Firefox; I thought I was being clever finding an add-on to do this. Thanks.
