How do I set the default font size to a lower value?

I recently got the Firefox 22.0 build 20130514181517 update (at the same time as a Windows 7 update, I might add) and since then the default font sizes on all websites have been enlarged. I have a 17" monitor, but due to the grossly overscaled fonts it seems more like an old 14", and it's quite irritating. To view the websites in approximately the old way they used to look, I have to zoom out twice, but it also means I have to do it on all sites. I also have the habit of accidentally zooming in or out while using my laptop's touchpad, so whenever I ctrl-0 to reset the font, it goes back to the large font, and I need to rezoom it again.

I am primarily trying to figure out if there is a way to reset the font size without using any add-ons.

Thanks

Hi,

Started up Firefox and the text in the main window was bigger than yesterday, there is now a scroll bar at the bottom for me to mover left and right to see all the screen. Zoom is already reset so CTRL+0 does nothing. Zooming back out to make the page look better only works for that page.

A complete re-installation of Firefox didn't work also.

I rolled back System Restore and Firefox looked fine again until I realised that I didn't have any search engines installed. So I reinstalled Firefox over the old (Choose Upgrade) and the big text problem came back.

I have been using Weebly recently, not sure if that is a coincidence or not, maybe I have messed something up whilst editing?

XP itself seems fine though, maybe this is a Font problem? Not sure. :P

Thanks.

Yesterday all of a sudden my webpages and UI appeared to be magnified. While I can zoom out on websites, I cannot find any option to adjust the size of the UI.

I noticed that Firefox 22 (which I am running) has a new feature: "Windows: Firefox now follows display scaling options to render text larger on high-res displays". Is it possible to adjust how Firefox responds to the display scaling options perhaps?

I have limited screen space, and use Nav Bar on Title Bar, and small icons, to reduce clutter as much as possible. Today there was a Firefox update, which seems to have increased the size of all icons, so that my 'small' icons are nearly as big as the normal sized ones used to be; thus both wasting vertical space and reducing the number of buttons I can get on a toolbar, and the amount of a URL that will fit in the address box. How can I restore all icons back to their original sizes?

Firefox simply has to make it possible for it's users to delete/remove/UNINSTALL UNWANTED PLUG-INS !!! WHY has this NEVER been a default option ???? I just don't understand.I found a page on how to "manually" delete plug-ins BUT...guess what ??? I ended up really screwing things up.Trying to manually delete the plug-ins that I wanted to do so with,I just randomly typed letters on my keyboard to rename the files and I did NOT write down what I has renamed these entries.

  Well,the instructions for doing this were not written very well and the "uninstall" did NOT take !! I even went as far as to uninstall and reinstall the entire program (Firefox) (thinking that maybe a fresh install would give me just the default plug-ins/extensions that Firefox comes with when a person downloads Firefox for the first time) TO NO AVAIL !! PLEASE....is there ANY way that you can help me with this ???

After updating to release 21.0, I'm no longer able to join an online meeting using Microsoft Lync 2010 if Firefox is set as my default browser. I get prompted to "Join the meeting using your web browser" or "Download and install Lync Attendee". Neither option works. Joining using web browser results in a prompt to install missing plugins, but then no suitable plugins are found. Trying to install Lync Attendee fails because Lync 2010 is already installed.

I also tried installing Firefox beta release 22.0, but the issue remains.

I use [control]- and [control]+ on the number pad to zoom the text in and out.

For some reason, [control]+ on the number pad no longer works. It does, however, work using the number keys at the top of the keyboard.

I have tried starting Firefox with no extensions loaded ... no joy. I have tried creating a new profile under my user account ... no joy. I have system administrator privileges.

When I launch Firefox using the Full Administrator's account and password, all the keys work.

I'm using Firefox 22.0 on top of Windows XP Professional.

Every time I try to use the Army of Awesome app to answer people's questions on Twitter it suspends my account because I'm tweeting too many people. It thinks I'm spamming when I'm not, so it automatically suspends my Twitter account. This has happened twice... What should I do to prevent this from happening when I answer people's tweets?

Since a week or so every time when I close my Firefox browser a command prompt pops up for a short moment. It's not really an annoyance, but it doesn't seem in order.

Judging from the title of the window it's something to do with saving my browser profile.

I recently noticed that the graphics in Firefox have become large and blurry. It's like they are all being zoomed automatically. I can't pinpoint exactly when this started, but I'm sure it hasn't been like this forever, because it would have driven me crazy long ago! I didn't change any of the settings myself, so I wonder if it has something to do with a Firefox update.

Anyway, when looking at websites, I have to zoom out twice from the default zoom state before images look crisp again.

However, the issue also applies to graphics that are part of the Firefox interface. For example, the icons in my bookmarks toolbar are blurry. So are the home icon, the downloads icon, and other built-in graphics that I can't zoom.
