I put Firefox on 500% zoom one day and since that day its defaulted to 500% zoom when clicking on a video or just clicking into the tab from a different one. I managed to find an add-on that kept the zoom the same when going to new videos but the zoom still defaults to 500% when clicking into the tab. I've tried changing the default zoom to something else then changing it back to 100% and I've tried deleting cookies. It still does it in a private window with no add-ons enabled.

Thanks

You can rename (or delete) the content-prefs.sqlite file in the Firefox profile folder to reset the page zoom for all websites.

Hey, Have you tried going to Options>>General then Zoom and check what's the default setting for zoom.

Default is set to 100%. I also set it to 500% then back down to 100%. That didn't work either.
