Since the last update (version 22) my browser seems to be randomly resizing websites to show much larger than their native resolution. I have two websites of my own and they look dreadful when re-sized. I spent hours refining them and getting them just the way I want them so my concern is that the viewing public aren't seeing them the way that I intended if this is a common issue.
I can zoom back out so they look as they should but as soon as I restart the browser the problem re-appears. This never happened with the previous version, why is it doing it now?
Firefox on Windows is now following display scaling options which may render text larger on high resolution displays. You can adjust your screen resolution. To modify it do the following:
If necessary, further adjust the value in 0.1 or 0.05 steps. Use values between 1.0 and about 0.5 to reduce elements in size. Use values greater than 1.0 to increase size. For example, a value of 1.25 will increase font size to 125% to accommodate the default DPI setting in Windows 8. Double check the value that you enter. Setting a too small value will make everything disappear and a too large value will blow things up.
To adjust the font size for the user interface, you can use the Theme Font & Size Changer extension.

thanks for your reply. This is extremely worrying. Are you basically saying that all users of Firefox are now going to view my websites larger than I originally intended?
This would mean my carefully thought out graphics will now be enlarged so they pixelate and text shows larger than I intended it to. This really is totally unacceptable, surely this can't be the case??
Hi, I'm afraid you're missing the point. If you're saying that this is something that Firefox automatically does from this version on, I'm worried that all my hard work in getting my own websites (i.e. websites I created to advertise my business) to display just the way I want them too at their native resolution is going to be over-ridden by Firefox deciding to resize them on a seemingly random basis.
Do you know if this is the case or is the problem only with my browser?
Slightly confused. I haven't changed any display resolution settings on my computer but I'm getting the problem. From doing a quick search I see I'm not alone.
Surely the easiest thing is for Firefox to change it back so the browser only shows websites at their native resolution?
Not really getting anywhere with this. Thanks for your help but my issue is with Firefox seemingly creating a solution to a problem that didn't exist in the first place.
