How do I set a default page size?


When Firefox opens, pages are displayed in about 1/3 the size of the screen. I would like to be able to set a default display size for all pages, in the same manner that I can set a default zoom in Google Chrome.

Chosen solution

You can use an extension to set a default font size and page zoom on web pages.

More Information

I can use zoom on individual pages, but it is a real pain to re-size every single page.

Thank you so much for this solution. I had stopped using Firefox due to the frustration of having to resize pages one at a time.
