How do I get magnification (to the left of the address bar) in the newest version to be saved on various sites, as it did previously?

Posted

In previous versions, I magnified or reduced each site I visited to fill my screen by clicking + or -. When I revisited those sites, I automatically got the magnification I previously chose. Now I must increase or reduce the magnification manually every time I visit a site, which wastes a lot of time. Is there anything I can do to get that feature back, or must I go back to the previous version for it? Thanks.

hello scarlton - this should still work in the newer versions. maybe the database that stores this information got corrupted somehow.

please go to firefox > help > troubleshooting information > profile - show folder & close firefox. in the windows that opened up look for the file named content-prefs.sqlite and delete or rename it. the database will be regenerated the next time you launch firefox & hopefully the custom zoom levels will be stored again in the future.
