shouldn't webpages automatically resize to fit window?
Why don't all websites automatically resize to fit the firefox window (when 'normal' size). Several updates ago - webpages stopped 'resizing'. Webpages that formally displayed fine, are now too large (the indicator shows 100%, but I must reduce it to 80% to display as it did before). I have - and have always had - my bookmarks sidebar 'open' and websites resized depending on the amount of space available. This no longer happens. Reducing or enlarging the bookmarks sidebar only 'slides' the webpage R or L to view the additional info (like using the scrollbar on the bottom). This only happens on some websites (e.g. Home depot) - but other resize as normal (e.g. Motley Fool). Is this a Firefox issue or the website developer issue?
This usually happens when the website uses absolute values for positioning elements instead of letting the browser take care of this. In such a case you can only manually zoom in or zoom out to adjust the page to fit the window width. There are also websites that use @media rules to provide different layouts for various screen dimensions.
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.
- switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
- do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
