Each time I open Firefox I have to manually keep resetting the zoom, I would like the default to remain at my current setting


Each time I sign on to Fire Fox I have to keep resetting the zoom to increase it. How can I change the default so it does cntrl ++ automatically? I need the bigger font size and even though I put a minimum font and check ingnor web setting the only way I can get the page to increase it to constantly increase the view.

The add-ons do not solve the problem. The chosen font size should stay resident instead of reverting to small type with every new page - very frustrating.
