why pictures, graphics suddenly exgtremely large?

Posted

Pictures on shopping sites (Amazon, eBay, et al.) and in google images pages have greatly increased in size over the last couple of months. Text is also larger and with more white space -- e.g. this page I'm typing into.

I've emailed Amazon and eBay to no effect.

Can I make images smaller, graphics tighter using Firefox?

You can rename the content-prefs.sqlite file to content-prefs.sqlite.old (or delete the file) in the Profile Folder to reset the page zoom for all websites.
