How can I permanently increase the size of websites?They appear small on my 1080p laptop display and I dont want to press ctrl + on every website.

I bought a new laptop with a resolution of 1920x1080. Whenever I open sites with firefox, they appear small. I have to press ctrl++ to zoom in for every page I visit. This is getting annoying. Is there any way to permanently zoom a page so I don't have to do it for every website?

P.S. I know that I can increase the font size permanently that that doesn't help with the images and the page doesn't render correctly.

You can also 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.

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.
