default page display HUGE

Posted

Just installed Firefox for Windows8. The default page display is, I'm guessing, 140%. I actually have to zoom out to get them to a normal size. Is there any sort of settings option that will let me set a smaller default display for web pages?

Chosen solution

Reset the page zoom on pages that cause problems.
