page content displaying too small to read on all sites

Since updating Firefox to 3.6.10 my pages are displaying so small I cannot read without zooming in on them. I realize you can zoom in and out with the browser but I do not want to do this on every page. This is the reason I stopped using IE when they updated. How do I uninstall the update? I do not want to mess around with this anymore.

If you need to adjust the font size on websites then look at:


You can increase the String pref layout.css.devPixelsPerPx from 1.0 to 2.0 in 0.1 steps to see what works best.

In Firefox 3.6 and later this pref is a String value parsed to a float and allows to fine tune the dimensions of all elements more precisely.

Tried this and it did improve page content size but then the page was not displaying properly. Browser bar font and size remained squeezed and small. Web page titles and captions were too large to display completely. Not a good fix at all with the new update. Uninstalled Firefox 3.6.1 and reinstalled old version I had in my downloads file. All is back to normal. If you have a HDMI widescreen display don't update Firefox.

Uninstalled 3.6.1 and reinstalled older version that was in my downloads file. All back to normal. If you have HDMI widescreen display don't install 3.6.1. I believe that the browsers are trying to accomodate all of these mobile devices and forgetting the desktop users. Just my personal observation.
