The issue I am having is that when the firefox browser is opened, the contents are really-really small and reduced in scale. I do understand that this would be caused by the high resolution of the screen, however, if I open the I.E. browser, everything is at a normal viewing size.

Is there an add on, or some way to make firefox [19] work so that it displays correctly? I really don;t want to have to use I.E. !! I am asking this question on my old computer, so don't go by the operating system this query was submitted on. The computer I am inquiring about is a samsung series 17 chronos touchscreen 15.6 HD screen laptop.

Use this extension to adjust the font size for the user interface:

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


You can increase the String pref layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in 0.1 steps from 1.0 to 2.0 on the about:config page (percentage divided by DPI, % / DPI).
