my screen resolution is too big for the screen on my monitor. I can't get it back to the right size.

I cannot get my screen back to where I can view it correctly. Everything is too big and I don't know what to do.

Only the web pages or the user interface as well?

Reset the page zoom on pages that cause problems: View > Zoom > Reset (Ctrl+0 (zero); Cmd+0 on Mac) See Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages and Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages and http://kb.mozillazine.org/Zoom_text_of_web_pages

go to Mac Preferences and then go to the Display Icon. You will see a bunch of numbers...play with them and see which ones make the items o0nn yur screen smaller. It is usually a number in the middle...

Until I can locate the zoom button, I can't change the screen size. Until then, you can move your cursor to the upper right corner and reduce the size of the screen. Don't totally send it to the bottom bar. When the screen is partially minimized, go to the sides and corners and move the borders almost to the edges of your screen. This will make the screen look more normal, but won't totally solve the problem. HCCD
