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

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

First, don't use the link that was above, it was incorrect and pointing to a beta version of 21, not the final build.

Second, why dont' you want to use Firefox 22? It's better to resolve any issues you are having in Firefox 22 and use it (it's more secure, stable and speedy than 21) than keep using 21 because of a simple issue.

hello, firefox 22 is now respecting the pixel density you've set on a system level in the windows control panel > appearance > display. more information about that is available at http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/make-the-text-on-your-screen-larger-or-smaller

if you want to set the text size/pixel density in firefox different from that of your system's settings like it was handled in prior versions, enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named layout.css.devPixelsPerPx. double-click it and change its value to 1.0 (or any other zoom factor that fits your purpose; -1.0 is the default value and will adhere to the system settings).

The behavior in Firefox 22 is correct, everything before was incorrect. You can adjust your pixel density, but using old versions of Firefox is not supported or recommended.

SomeDude1212, you are welcome to create your own browser if you think you can do better based on you backseat criticism. ;)

Or even submit patches or such to help improve this.

Ok so it was not perfect for some in the real word as something this big a change is bound to not work out perfectly right away in correcting what was incorrect before.

Hi Moderator, When chanelle.r and SomeDude1212 asked you modestly and politely about how to downgrade to FF21, kindly understand that your answers are not helping any one of us who are looking for FF21 for some or other reasons. It seems you are bit arrogant in your reply to SomeDude1212 when he has got some genuine issues with FF22.

Even I am facing one such issue with Selenium 2.0, a FF add-on. I am not able to run any selenium scripts in FF22 and I am getting the below error message in Selenium with FF22 when I try to run a script which was properly running in FF21 earlier.

[error] Unexpected Exception: fileName -> chrome://selenium-ide/content/selenium-core/scripts/htmlutils.js, lineNumber -> 309, columnNumber -> 8

Now can you please let us all know where and how do we downgrade FF to 21 rather than having issues with FF22 even though we agree and understand that FF22 is latest and has got more security features.

Your modest reply would just be appreciated.

Thanks, Selenium_user

SomeDude1212, if anybody was trolling and adding insults it was you ;) then and again.

He may indeed have some issues but he did not need to bump thread with the rant post especially the last part especially since if he wants to be taken seriously. Like I said if somebody thinks they can do better on how something is done then submit patches for it in appropriate bug in bugzilla as Firefox is open source and Mozilla employees are not the only ones essentially making Firefox.

Downgrading to Firefox 21.0 is not encouraged as it is potentially vulnerable. http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/firefox.html
