why pictures, graphics suddenly exgtremely large?

Pictures on shopping sites (Amazon, eBay, et al.) and in google images pages have greatly increased in size over the last couple of months. Text is also larger and with more white space -- e.g. this page I'm typing into.

I've emailed Amazon and eBay to no effect.

Can I make images smaller, graphics tighter using Firefox?

Reset the page zoom on pages that cause problems.

Thanks for your answer Cor-el. I've tried that and it helps a bit.

But I'd really like to know why have most sites switched to this overlarge pics and text format. anybody have a clue?

You can rename the content-prefs.sqlite file to content-prefs.sqlite.old (or delete the file) in the Profile Folder to reset the page zoom for all websites.
