Can I set zoom to 75%? Not 70, not 80, but 75?

In order to comfortably use a particular website, I need to decrease the size of all elements. 80% zoom does not show the element I need to see. 70% zoom shows that element and much more that I don't need and makes it too unreadable to use. 75% seems like it would fit my needs perfectly, but there doesn't seem to be any way to set the zoom to any number that is not an interval of 10. This feels like a simple question, so hopefully there's a simple answer of "Yes, here's how" or "Nah, get used to 70"

Chosen solution

In about:config (which can be opened by typing that in the URL bar and hitting Enter)

Type this in the Search bar on that internal prefs page:

toolkit.zoomManager.zoomValues

Then right-click that pref and select Modify - edit the String Values to include .75 - place that between .67 and .8. Use the OK button to save the edit.

Now 75% will be appear between 67% and 80% as you change the zoom level down.

Note that zooming by rotating the mouse wheel with Ctrl pressed adjusts the zoom in 10% changes.
