How do I change the browser window to make it narrower? Need to fit multiple windows on a wide screen monitor without having to use a horizontal scroll bar.


I recently changed to a wide screen monitor, hoping to use it to view multiple windows at one time. Now, however, the windows are just really wide. I tried to change the window size, but then I just ended up having to use a horizontal scroll bar-- which is really inconvenient for me. So, can I change the window settings so they just don't fill my whole screen? I'm not super computer savvy. Thanks for helping!

When Firefox is not maximized, you can use the four corners to resize the window. Once you've settled on a comfortable window size, please try pressing Ctrl + - (minus) on the keyboard until the contents fit in. To revert to the original size press Ctrl + 0 (zero).
