How can I reset the DEFAULT zoom view in Firefox at 125%, like IE, so I don't have to reset it every time ?

How can I reset the DEFAULT zoom view in Firefox at 125%, like IE, so I don't have to reset it every time ?

I have seen this question asked previously and it seems there is no answer.

I know that one can change each individual web page (that reset defaults back to 100%) and, alternatively and apparently one can load an add-on to fix the default size at Full Zoom.

... But any hints on how to achieve a DEFAULT 125% zoom would be much appreciated.

Have you tried Firefox's zoom feature? Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages You can "zoom" all sites using this add-on: NoSquint. After setting your global zoom level, you can still fine-tune the zoom on individual sites. After installing NoSquint, click the % on the Add-on Bar to call up site preferences, then click the Global Settings button, then the Zooming tab.

If you don't have the Add-on Bar displayed, you can right-click the new tab button ("+") or a blank area of the tab bar to the right of it and choose Add-on Bar from the shortcut menu.

You can experiment with sizes larger than 125%, but I wouldn't go much higher than 150% unless you have a large high-resolution monitor.

If there are particular sites that still present a problem, feel free to post their URLs.

You can find more information about the zoom features Firefox offers in these articles:

Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages - For zooming text only

Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages - For zooming the whole page (including images etc.)
