After update 103.0 was applied, the entire display got bigger. Fonts are larger, display no longer fits on screen, taskbar is larger. Several hours ago, it was fine. I logged out of Firefox, and at next login, the display had changed.

I've checked everything else on the computer and nothing else was affected--only Firefox . Running Windows 10.

Can I revert to the previous version of Firefox pre-this update - I find this GUI very difficult to manage. Everything comes up too large - and websites I'm accustomed to operating on are totally reorganized and have become hard to use.

After the last update whenever I use the Firefox browser are extremely zoomed in.

Using a viewport checker, its showing for some reason Firefox is displaying my DPR at 1.40. Default settings should usually have it at 1.00

However going into the setting shows everything with Firefox IS set to default (for example zoom is set at 100%, etc)

After trying to find a fix myself I found old Firefox forums suggestions to go into the config and adjust a certain value (the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx) which defaults to -1.0. While adjusting this value to about 0.75 made what appears in the browser window return to normal, the actual parts of the browser (the address bar, tabs etc) were made unreadably small.

I'm having to use Firefox with every single website zoomed out to 70%-80% cause whatever that last update did broke my broswer. Apart from the above fix I tried normal fixes such as clearing cache, doing a "refresh" of Firefox install.

To put it in short: Everything on my screen, when using firefox, from the bottom of the address bar down to the bottom of the screen, is about 40% zoomed in, however none of the settings are shown to have been changed from the default values.

So Mozilla automatically updated me to the latest version of Firefox browser for my PC (windows 10) and EVERYTHING is zoomed in to the point I can't even read my email. Half of it is off the page because of this ridiculous enlargement of every thing about this browser including the top bars on the browser. How can I fix this or do I have to, once again, install a previous version of Firefox, like I did with the last update? Thank you.

Unknown to me 301.0 was installed on Windows 10 computer this AM. When I tried to open Firefox to home page the "picture" of the window was enormous. Screen captured only a small portion of normal display. How do I get back to a normal sized window. Happens only with Firefox...no other programs.

I want compact mode back! I had a theme that enabled it, now it's not working. Not only that, enabling compact mode in config didn't make it compact, nor did it give me the option to change densities in the toolbar under "more tools." What's even more aggravating is that Firefox has made all the elements too big so I feel like it's set for a low-vision user. I can't change the graphical aspects, changing the fonts did not help. Zooming out makes it too small. You ruined a perfectly useful browser. Are you sick of your job, or are you just stupid?

Stop trying to fix, then sabotaging, whatever we finally cobbled together to get things to work. Yesterday, I could set a Firefox page alongside another application, each half a screen, side by side. Today, your idiot upgrade only allows the firefox page to shrink to 2/3 of screen measured horizontally, so it blocks the other half-screen application. You coders and your mania of fixing what ain't broke and breaking what weren't!

Firefox used to give me lots of room in the window, with icons the size of a pencil eraser and room to see 5 or 6 tabs across the top and all of my bookmark folders across the window. The zoom setting for content in the windows was 100%. I now have icons the size of my finger, room to see 3 tabs, the zoom set to 67%, and even with the window full screen I cannot see all of my bookmark folders. How to I get the old window settings back? I have no idea why the size definitions changed, and no idea how to reset it.
