Web pages displayed too small in newer versions of Firefox
I run Firefox 3.5.5 because I get full screens of all websites. When it auto updates to the new level, my screen size is very small for all the same sites. So I go back to version 3.5.5 and all is good again with nice full screen web pages. How can I get the full screen size for the latest version of Firefox to be the same as in Firefox version 3.5.5? I have tried all the settings I can find and all i can effect it with is I use the view / zoom / zoom-in, function but it is a temporary fix and has to be done for each new webpage. Please help me and advise. Thank you, firstname.lastname@example.org

Version 3.5.5 is not secure and you really should update either to 3.6.18 or 5.0.
You are correct that Firefox changed the way zoom works from zoom being remembered for the current tab to zoom being remembered on a site-by-site basis.
You can "zoom" all sites using this add-on: NoSquint. After setting your Global zoom level, you can still fine-tune the zoom on individual sites.
After installing NoSquint, click the % on the Add-on Bar to call up site preferences, then click the Global Settings button, then the Zooming tab.
If you don't have the Add-on Bar displayed, you can right-click the new tab button ("+") or a blank area of the tab bar to the right of it and choose Add-on Bar from the shortcut menu.
You can experiment with sizes larger than 125%, but I wouldn't go much higher than 150% unless you have a large high-resolution monitor.
If there are particular sites that still present a problem, feel free to post their URLs.
