I'm using Firefox 18.0.1 which I think is the latest version, on a PC. When Google maps comes up, the zoom bar and all the other buttons and controls on the map itself are way, way too small. So small as to be almost unusable, although they are functional. The map itself also seems to take up more of the screen than it used to.
Firefox works fine on Mapquest (for example). The Internet Explorer (Microsoft) browser works fine on Google maps. It's just the particular combination of Firefox and Google maps that has a problem. Any suggestions?
Thanks cor-el, what you said about the menu bar definitely helped.
'mad' told me about <ctrl> 0, which worked, and I probably could have gotten there myself if the menu bar had been visible. But I didn't know there even *was* a menu bar. I fixed that so it's up all the time now.
You can certainly find the menu bar option even when it's hidden so I don't really have an excuse. It's just that with the usual software philosophy of top-down search by a series of pulldown menus, you have to recognize the significance of one pathway out of the many you are looking at.
