I just updated and now everything is larger. The bookmarks toolbar is larger, the tabs are larger... There's barely any room for the page I want to see. How do I go back to the previous version? OR how do I get stuff back to normal? Thank you for any help. It will be appreciated.

Chosen solution

Windows' "Make text bigger" accessibility setting now affects all the UI and content pages, rather than only applying to system font sizes.

To get stuff back to normal, reset Windows' "Make text bigger" setting to 100% or enter about:config in the URL bar and create a new number pref ui.textScaleFactor = 100.

Hi

While there is not an easy way to revert this our product team did suggest this about:config preference change as the optimal solution at this time.

  1. In the address bar, type about:config and press the Enter key.
  2. The about:config warning page may appear. Click Accept the Risk and Continue to continue to the about:config page.
  3. In the search field, enter browser.display.os-zoom-behavior, select the pencil "edit" icon and change the number to 0.
  4. Select the check mark and restart Firefox.

They did note they would look into alternative options which may be present in a future update.

WARNING from the moderator team: Changing Firefox pref from the about:config page can sometimes break Firefox or cause strange behavior. You should only do this if you know what you're doing.

Please read Firefox advanced customization and configuration options to learn more.
