How do I change the percentage of the page size from 100% to 75% or another %


I just downloaded FireFox to use as my browser instead of Internet Explorer because I keep having problems with IE, but I cannot figure out how to change the size of the page print. I like to see as much of the page as possible, so I usually keep mine at 75%, but I can't find anywhere to change it.

Firefox tries to remember the settings on a per website or domain basis. Shortcut key board keys may be used to zoom in and out:

  • use Control and Plus or Minus with Control Zero resetting to 100%
  • may also use the menu but not the Firefox Button
    Keyboard: Alt (displays menu toolbar) -> View -> Zoom (+/-)
  • see also Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages (also explains how to use the mouse to zoom)
