firefox display scale fix

Posted

firefox 21 was fine, I just intalled it and the display screen fit my screen resolution of 1024x 768

I just installed firefox 22 and the icons and images, the flash player of any site are bigger, and even the horizontal scroll bar appeared for example when entering youtube site using F21 the horizontal scroll bar was not shown, now it shown by some reason, and everything became bigger, how can I reverse or fix this issue?

Additional System Details

Installed Plug-ins

  • Shockwave Flash 11.7 r700

Application

  • User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; rv:22.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/22.0

Use <Ctrl> - (minus) to reduce what is on your screen. Use <Ctrl> + (plus) to increase.

Code changes regarding HiDPI have landed in Firefox 22 and later (bug #844604).

You can modify the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx and increase or decrease the value in 0.1 or 0.05 steps to adjust the size of fonts and other elements in Firefox.

  • The layout.css.devPixelsPerPx pref is a String value parsed to a float and allows to fine tune the dimensions of all elements (user interface and web pages) more precisely (resolution 0.1 or 0.05).
  • You can use values between 0.05 and 1.0 to reduce elements in size or use values greater than 1.0 to magnify and make elements larger (percentage divided by DPI, % / DPI).

If the web pages needs to be adjusted after changing this pref then you can look at Default FullZoom Level or NoSquint.
