Windows 7: Firefox page is too wide for my screen

Firefox page is too wide for my screen

Hello,

on my computer at work we use Mozilla Firefox to access a a website. My problem is that the web page is too wide for my computer screen. A while back a co worker of mine had the same problem and he used one of the settings below to fix the problem. But that co worker is out of town for a couple of weeks. Can anyone help me reduce the width of the page, so that I can see the whole page without having to scroll?

Thanks.

There may have been a time when I knew how to do what you need, but I've forgotten it.

However...............you can do what I did instead:

Install NoSquint, a Firefox add-on.

I have version 2.1.9.

It puts a plus and minus sign in the upper right corner of your screen.

Hit plus to zoom in or minus to zoom out.

It remembers the setting for each web site, so when you go back to it, you don't have to use the plus or minus again.

Bad news: NoSquint is totally kaput now with Firefox 47, and the developer is no longer maintaining it.

Good news: Another developer came out with NoSquint Plus, which is similar to NoSquint.

Screen is too wide

My screen picture is too wide!
Hi I have just installed Windows 7 on my 14 inch widescreen laptop. My problem is that the ratio is wrong. A perfect square becomes a rectangle and it looks stupid. So a perfect square is more broad than it is high. I would like a perfect square to look like a perfect square on my screen! Maybe...
