Windows 7: Small Screen Image in Firefox

Small Screen Image in Firefox

I've got a MSI GX660 laptop running Win 7 64bit that has a native screen resolution of 1920 x 1080.

When using Firefox the information in the browser only takes up the middle third of the screen (portrait way). I can use the CTRL and + key to zoom in but find that it only stays at that zoom level for web pages I've already viewed. If I view a web page not previously viewed I have to go through the CTRL + process each time.

Is there something I am missing?? With IE I'm able to set the zoom at 140% which is perfect and stays at that for any pages I view but find IE a lot slower and prone to crashes.

Any help is appreciated

Hi, kersey! :)

Which version of FireFox are you running?

If you're running 3.x.x, use this add-on (Default Zoom Level). If your running beta 4.x, use the referenced add-on but you'll also have to install the Add-on Compatibility Reporter.

Many thanks my friend, am using 3.6.13, have installed the add-on and all is well.

Wonderful! :) Gotta love those people that make the FF browser even greater than it is out of the box.
