Hi, I enabled jqzoom on my site but it has a problem on products with attributes. For some reason when the page loads, the default product image only shows a tiny, thumbnail like image. When u hover over the second image, it loads the image but the zoom window is a tiny one just like the thumbnail. Has anyone else expeirneced this? I'm using the latesta Prestashop 1.6
