Prevent flash from resizing after zoom

Posted

I am using chrome because of this and vastly prefer firefox, so I hope there is an answer...

There are some flash sites where if I zoom in with chrome the flash also stays zoomed out. Those same size, when I zoom out with Firefox, resize to the original display option. This is a problem for some of my vision impaired clients that need larger characters and we are forced to use chrome.

I have looked in the settings in various locations and haven't managed to locate anything that allows the zoom not to resize. It is particularly frustrating that it stops for a second at the new zoom level then resizes itself.

This has happened for the last ... forever of flash and FF updates. It hasn't ever worked with any combination that I can tell.

Any help?

Having more than one version of a program may cause issues. You must remove the older programs. Then get the current full installer.

Adobe Reader Version 2015.008.20082 Note: McAfee Security is offered in the download.

I'm having trouble visualizing this problem.

In the past, users have posted links to sites where there is a problem in Firefox with zoom and Flash, where the Flash player appears to be a fixed size and zooming the page enlarges or shrink your view of the player (more or less of the player is cut off). For example: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/982893#answer-521292 (Forest Temple game as of Jan. 2014)

I can't tell whether you have that issue or something different. Is there a particular page you would want us to look at for discussion?
