How do I increase web page size?

more options

I just downloaded Firefox 3.6.6. & after restarting my computer all of the pages that I went to on the internet are now very small. I have a large monitor & had no problem with the previous version of Firefox. The web pages were all large. I know that you can click on "Ctrl +" to manually enlarge a page, but how do I adjust the settings so that all of the pages are large again? Help!!!

Thanks edmeister! The Default Full Zoom Level extension worked! My Firefox task bars are still very small but the web pages themselves are much better!! Thanks again for the great advice! howlinwolf

You can try to increase layout.css.devPixelsPerPx from 1.0 to 2 in 0.1 steps to see what works best. This pref is a String value, parsed to a float, in Firefox 3.6.6 and allows to fine tune the dimensions of all elements more precisely.

To open the about:config page, type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the Enter key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website. If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.

this URLwill tell you all you need to know about zooming in on Firefox web pages. and just ib case the site goes down for some reason the short cut keys are Ctrl key + +key = Zoom In Ctrl key + -key = Zoom out

hope this helped
