How can I fix the zoom for a website?

Posted

I went to my photobucket website to add photos, however the site zoomed out and out so far I can't see it. Also, I can't put it back to normal. This is the only site so far which has done this. I just started using Firefox. is there anything I can do?

Chosen solution

It is usually best to reset the page zoom if you've changed it by accident.

  • View > Zoom > Reset
  • Press the F10 key or tap the Alt key to bring up the "Menu Bar" temporarily if the menu bar is hidden.

Firefox stores the page zoom per domain.

Reset the page zoom on pages that cause problems.

  • View > Zoom > Reset (Ctrl+0 (zero); Cmd+0 on Mac)

den-arn,

What you can possibly do (assuming that the problem isn't on the website side), is :

  1. Press Ctrl and + to Zoom In
  2. Press Ctrl and - to Zoom out.

If this doesn't help, post back again.

Thanks in advance

Question owner

OK, thanks I'll give it a try.

Question owner

Thanks. I get confused at which "0" or + to type, though. but I'll give it a go
