bookmark bug

For the last week or so, whenever i hover over a link, firefox will display the wrong details about it. It will instead show the info about a another bookmark 3 or 4 above it.


Edit: Also around the same time my Firefox seems zoomed in more so than normal. I hit Ctrl[0] and everything is "fine". ..This is only a small issue. I can live with being zoomed into each and every page. x_x

Re: bookmark bug

Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.


Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Re: bookmark bug

For Zooming problem: 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:

  • Type about:config into the Firefox address bar and tap on the Enter key.
  • If the warning This might void your warranty appears, click I'll be careful, I promise.
  • Search for layout.css.devPixelsPerPx

Fx22layout.css.devPixelsPerPx

  • Double-click on layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to modify its value. The default is -1.0 in Firefox 22 and above. Change it to 1.0 to make it work like in previous Firefox versions.

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.

If web pages still need to be adjusted then you can look at the Default FullZoom Level or NoSquint extension.

To adjust the font size for the user interface, you can use the Theme Font & Size Changer extension.

Thank you for taking the time to help out. I changed the zoom to "-.5" and its perfect. I don't feel like i have my face against the screen anymore.

As for the main issue. I have no virus' nor malware. I use for my computer, MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware and Avast! Antivirus.
