When I go to settings/General/Default Zoom if I check zoom text only, on my facebook page why does it enlarges the the images & have no effect on the text?
When I go to settings/General/Default Zoom if I check zoom text only, on my facebook page why does it enlarges the the images & have no effect on the text? If I use the device settings +/- to reduce the the image I can get the font to a readable size but text on the left & right side of the page are still gone from the viewing area. Increasing obviously has no better results.
OK, I just tried unchecking zoom text only and it restored it to normal. I'm glad it's back to where was but the way it's listed in the setting seems confusing. If I check "zoom text only" that is the outcome I would expect,
When I first searched for help it returned 0 results, which is why I am posting it.

Most sites with sidebars have multiple sets of style rules for different screen widths and resolution levels. Each time you change the zoom level (regular zoom, not text only), Firefox changes how it reports your screen resolution to the site, so the layout may change. It's possible that switching from proportional zoom to text zoom triggered one of those shifts.
Is the problem that you need to zoom out, i.e., make everything smaller, because everything is too big? Does this affect most sites, or is it a FB-specific issue?
Not what you asked but it may interest you, there is an extension which enables you to set zoom for each site. I have text only for FB because the images are large enough. The extension also allows you to set a minimum font size for each site.
"Zoom Text Only" only affects the text on the page and not other elements like the text containers and images, so this can cause issues with websites that use fixed containers and absolute positioning with text overlapping. For this reason is "Zoom Text Only" not recommended.
