Turning off the zoom window when tapping near multiple links

I've been running Nightly for some time and lately there's a feature I thought was neat until I started running into real usability problems with it. The little zoom window that pops up when tapping on a link that is close to another (or tapping inside a text box to meet the cursor for typing.) This is we're my problems start. I thought it was a neat feature at first, but it doesn't behave like I think it should and it's just getting in the way more than it's helping.

I'd like to turn it off.

When editing a field in reddit, the zoom comes up, doesn't properly render the cursor so it's hard to tell where the cursor is when typing. The zoom doesn't go away when I start scrolling so the window just sits there in the way. When clicking on multi-line links, it pops up causing me to have to tap twice to navigate. It's become a nuisance.

I am not a computer geek and I think I want a simple thing: when I start Mozilla Firefox I want zoom level to be set automatically at 150%. In another words I want Mozilla Firefox to remember that my preference is 150% zoom level so I do not have to retune it each time I start Mozilla Firefox or open new tab. Is it possible? Thank you, Mike

I have sensory processing issues. Zooming images *hurt* and can cause immediate, severe, lasting headaches. Many online maps zoom and give me headaches if I try to scroll around them. I need some way to block these and all other zooming images.

When FF Window is not maximized, it doesn't resize, so I have to scroll.

When I switch from the maximized FF window to the resizable one, FF immediately puts in scroll bars instead of simply making the webpage fit the size of the page. This means I lose the information on the right side of most websites and have to scroll to see it. I would like the website to remain centered, even if the size of the images and fonts are reduced.

I am using chrome because of this and vastly prefer firefox, so I hope there is an answer...

There are some flash sites where if I zoom in with chrome the flash also stays zoomed out. Those same size, when I zoom out with Firefox, resize to the original display option. This is a problem for some of my vision impaired clients that need larger characters and we are forced to use chrome.

I have looked in the settings in various locations and haven't managed to locate anything that allows the zoom not to resize. It is particularly frustrating that it stops for a second at the new zoom level then resizes itself.

This has happened for the last ... forever of flash and FF updates. It hasn't ever worked with any combination that I can tell.

Any help?

There is a flash game I like to play - Hack Slash Crawl - that has an odd glitch. If the game page isn't opened at the correct size, the active areas(buttons, etc.) are sometimes outside the game's window frame on the page, making the game unplayable.

I was wondering if there was some way to force the page to open at a specific fixed zoom every time the page is opened. I would like for the page to be zoomable once the game has been started, and NOT effect the zoom level the next time the page is opened. I'm guessing there is some sort of string command to put into the address before opening it, but I'm just not good enough to know how or what that might be.

My internet page is to large. The icon to make smaller does not appear. I am on Microsoft 10. I tried the escape key but that did not work. I know there is a formula but I can't remember what it is. There is no arrow key either to go back a page. The only way out is to turn off the computer. When I come back on the internet the problem remains the same. Can you help?

This morning on another computer I added some suggested addons in firefox and now when scrolling the page zomms in and out instead of movung down the page. When I tried to ask for help by using the 'Search Mozilla support' it kept bringing up things that were related to shortcuts. I deleted 2 of the addons (I think) - tab developer and highlighter and that solved some other problems that suddenly appeared.
