Zooming on DeX (Desktop mode)

Skrevet

I've been trying to use Firefox as my main browser on my Samsung Galaxy S8, but I ran into a problem on DeX (desktop mode). The browser scales pretty well in a DeX window (showing the tablet interface, not the phone one), but there seems to be no way to zoom in or out.

Normally you zoom by using 2 fingers, but of course in DeX you only have one mouse pointer, so this isn't an option.

Other browsers like Samsung Internet and Chrome deal with this by allowing you to use Control + mousewheel just like on the desktop. But Firefox doesn't have this feature. There's also no option in the menu.

Did anyone find any way to zoom in DeX mode? Many pages come up way too big or too small which is unusable.

PS: I tried Firefox Preview as well but same deal there.

Hi

I have heard back from our developers and I do not think that this will currently work with Firefox for Android, but is hopefully something that may be included in a future update.

How's your name going to help? :)

So I guess there is no solution here? I assume not considering the lack of replies. Too bad, it would really be great to be able to use Firefox everywhere.
