auto-zoom makes it difficult to use Outlook web on my phone

The way Firefox for Android automatically zooms in when the cursor is active in the fields of a draft email in Outlook web - really annoying. In particular I have to close the keyboard and pinch back to 100% before I can delete a draft, because the "delete" option appears (or rather does not appear) below the screen. Not being able to see the beginning and end of the lines I am typing is not helpful either. After looking around, it seems like I should be able to turn off the form helper via about:config, but that is apparently no longer available. Any advice welcome! PS Chrome handles Outlook web without this unhelpful zooming. And Firefox for Android handles Gmail web without such zooming. So it's definitely possible :)
