Ribbon size at top of screen suddenly changed
I opened Firefox this morning and suddenly my home screen was 4 or 5 times larger then when I shut down the night before. The zoom settings in the menu only affect the body of the home screen. I can not find how to reduce the size of the fonts being used in the ribbon.

It seems you have the issue described in this thread.
Thank you Terry - That did the trick!!
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.
- In the address bar, type about:config and press the Enter key.
- The about:config warning page may appear. Click Accept the Risk and Continue to continue to the about:config page.
- In the search field, enter browser.display.os-zoom-behavior, select the pencil "edit" icon and change the number to 0.
- 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.
