After the latest Firefox update, several websites I use that launch applications installed on my PC are no longer working. Zoom meetings is one of them, Teamviewer, and Solarwinds Take Control, OneDrive sync - anything really. I've tried uninstalling Firefox, removing all user data, and reinstalling but it is the same. Other browsers such as Chrome and the new Edge are working fine as expected.

I have a high DPI monitor, and I've set the Windows UI scaling factor to 125%. However, at 125% the web pages appears a bit too zoomed in (images and fonts too large) for me, so I set the default zoom level to 80% in the settings page. But apparently add-on popups (e.g. uBlock origin) doesn't use the default zoom level so they are comically large compared to web pages. I tried setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1, but then Firefox UI became too small. I wonder if I can set the zoom level for add-on popups to 80% without changing the size of the browser UI?

Does anyone know why there is an apparent magnification issue on certain websites?

I apologize for not remembering what previous version the issue had commenced.

The MLB website, and occasionally, CNN’s, renders excessive magnification. The issue is very frequent on the MLB website. Disabled uBlock Origin on those websites and did not resolve it. Yes, my magnification is set at 100%. It should be of no surprise that the issue has NEVER once transpired in Chrome. The view from Chrome is how the website should be displaying.

I am going to provide two screenshots. One from Firefox and the other from Chrome. These views pertain to a Windows 7 platform via a desktop computer. I only have 8GB of RAM. I use a GTX 960 Vid card. Not the worst model in the world.

What else have I noticed about the MLB website that does not pertain to Firefox? It is a major CPU sucker when videos are playing from it. The CPU usage shoots up to Palookaville. It would seem to me that there are two issues materializing. Changed the CPU with an identical spare. No change.

One or two possibilities may be occurring:

1. There may be an issue in Firefox pertaining to the magnification issue and how it renders specific websites

2. The MLB website requires super-powered hardware to use it. A 3.0 GHz processor should be sufficient. Apparently not for the MLB site.

I reiterate that the magnification rendering issue has never occurred in Chrome.

How do I reduce the number of zoom levels in Firefox

My PC is used by me and another person and we use vastly different zoom levels. My partner uses about 0.75 and I use 1.25 in Chrome and would like to set similar zoom levels in Firefox. As I use the PC most and I want the default zoom level to be 1.25. I would like to replace the FF level of 1.2 with 1.25 and delete some of the lower zoom levels. A setting of 0.33, 0,5, 0.75., 1.00 and 1.25 to replace the settings up to and including 1.33 would be my desire. I wish to leave the higher zoom levels unchanged.

I understand I can change this in about:config but would like some assistance in doing this.

With Firefox 76, is the only new thing with Zoom the fact that you can join a meeting? Do you still need Zoom desktop program to start a meeting or to send msg?

Firefox 76 released yesterday, Tuesday May 5 2020.

Release notes https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/76.0/releasenotes/ say

Firefox now supports Audio Worklets that will allow more complex audio processing like VR and gaming on the web; and is being adopted by some of your favorite software programs.

With this change, you can now join Zoom calls on Firefox without the need for any additional downloads. --- end of quote ---

But do you still need "additional downloads" (e.g. Zoom desktop program) to do things other than "join Zoom calls on Firefox"? For example:

  1. Create a meeting
  2. Send a message to a Zoom contact
  3. Start a meeting
  4. Move people from waiting room to the Zoom room

?

Sometime in the last 2-3 months, it has become impossible for me to use Firefox and Zoom concurrently on my Macbook Pro (2015). When I open a Firefox window during a Zoom meeting my meeting lags, almost freezes, and I get a beautiful spinning Mac rainbow. Eventually this subsides and I can exit Firefox and Zoom returns to function as usual. I am able to pair Chrome and Zoom together with no trouble. I would like to go back to using Firefox, but have had to temporarily switch to Zoom.

Any advice about how to get these two programs to play nice would be appreciated. Thanks!
