but same thing in Firefox and Chromium :-(, and why do the thumnail do 
not have the same orientation than the very same open image? Firefox do 
not see the thumb like an image?

well, I don't want any tool to do the rotation for me. I do it manually 
in digikam (but unedited images do not have the flag normalized, I 
guess, I also asked to digikam list)

yes. Some app do, some others don't and even some looks at the ration 
L/l to try :-(

ok, I much prefer this. I use default Firefox setup (because I try to 
cope with my reader's install, not mine)

thanks :-)
