After updating to Firefox 103, everything in the browser including web pages, are way too big. Oversized. What the heck happened? Why do they do this? On the tool bar with the address field, on the right, I have a zoom icon, etc., and they're all much bigger!

I could adjust zoom, but this is not right. It's all messed up!

Yes I went into Customize Tool bar - Density - and it was already set to "compact - not supported"

I went into about: config - browser.display.os-zoom-behavior - changed to zero. Nothing happened.

I went into the windows settings - display - set to 125% which it always was. Changing to 100% didn't do anything. Went into display - Make display bigger - and it's 160, where I always had it.

Not happening in Chrome or Windows. So it's Firefox.

I don;t know if I chose the right "best describes the question" because the first half of the option is off the screen to the left, and there's no way to scroll over. I would like to go back to the version that preceded this latest update please. It worked well. Please reply by email, [email-removed], because I can't read most of what's on the screen here. I hope someone pays attention to this, because otherwise I'll have to abandon Firefox, and it's been by far my preferred browser. Can't think what you've done to it. Your updates in the past all worked fine. I'm on a Lenovo ThinkPad S145 with Windows10.

1. I have accepted "auto mode" for Firefox updates as promoted by Mozilla et al. Update I refer to was installed at PC shutdown on Thursday 27July22 AEST. I re opened browser next day to see my FF webpage background minimized to abt 75% relative usual settings and search bar text populated with tiny type font despite usual pre set zoom factor 110% and no applied font changes by moi. I am long sighted until within arms' length then I need significant optical corrections to deal with type and small stuff Eg. hand stitching on dark fabric as in hemming pants is now difficult; tiny hand held devices aka "mobiles phone" for me are not practical even with usual specs. For most of my 70 years I have viewed the world with just left eye hence reduced field of view, + close up perspective issues - vision sharp enough otherwise until I had to work with computers + poor monitors in the eighties, that induced rapid vision decline. HOWEVER with or without "computer spectacles" I don't need or want contents of web pages blown out to +/- 150% as it now appears when I attempt to go about my daily browse. Attempts to rectify via Control Panel functions were futile. And that's how I set up my previous "view". WHY do this unannounced? Windows 10 settings menu has pre set [not customizable] zoom factors - 25% increments and further spoils my attempts to rectify view to comfortable settings. CTRL+/- function IS NOT WORKING at all in Thundermail hence it remains uncomfortable and highly inconvenient to access.

2.Yesterday30Jul22 I wasted hours trying to locate sensible help in Mozilla community - https://www.askvg.com/fix-ui-scaling-and-large-fonts-issues-in-firefox-103-and-later-versions/ was all I could find worth risking BUT DOES NOT WORK to restore my former view - yes, re check after several re starts of PC show "solution" installed permanently but no revision to my screen view. I guess Mozilla techs quickly out manoeuvred this Windows hack or his solutions don't apply to my older version. WHY has MOZILLA DONE THIS? WHAT IS IT GOING TO DO TO RESTORE COMFORTABLE SENSIBLE BROWSER VIEW??

3. This "change" achieves nothing for users like me, less than nothing. It just confirms the unguided missile of US style business still lays waste to all who engage with it. If I am required to learn how to fix my own issues then I'd prefer real control over it and proper support.

On my email site, I can't see the box to type my email in without scrolling. Help. How do I shrink the image to a usable size??

After the last update whenever I use the Firefox browser are extremely zoomed in.

Using a viewport checker, its showing for some reason Firefox is displaying my DPR at 1.40. Default settings should usually have it at 1.00

However going into the setting shows everything with Firefox IS set to default (for example zoom is set at 100%, etc)

After trying to find a fix myself I found old Firefox forums suggestions to go into the config and adjust a certain value (the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx) which defaults to -1.0. While adjusting this value to about 0.75 made what appears in the browser window return to normal, the actual parts of the browser (the address bar, tabs etc) were made unreadably small.

I'm having to use Firefox with every single website zoomed out to 70%-80% cause whatever that last update did broke my broswer. Apart from the above fix I tried normal fixes such as clearing cache, doing a "refresh" of Firefox install.

To put it in short: Everything on my screen, when using firefox, from the bottom of the address bar down to the bottom of the screen, is about 40% zoomed in, however none of the settings are shown to have been changed from the default values.

Windows 10

Re the new feature - "Windows' Make text bigger" accessibility setting now affects all the UI and content pages, rather than only applying to system font sizes."

Now text sizes on all my web pages are messed up, mostly way too large. On at least one page with graphics, when I try scrolling to get a good size, the layout of the text is wrong. I can't get a good proportion with both the graphic and the text - that is, if the graphic (a board game site) is the right size, the text is too tiny.

And resizing one page affects other pages on which I need different sizes.

So how can I Undo this unwanted AND NOT needed feature?

When I opened the browser the web page content was suddenly very large. I had to manually decrease the size to 70% to navigate. I went into settings and checked whether I had accidentally changed anything. Everything was the same. I then tried one at a time changing the Theme, Default Fonts, both letting websites choose the font and using the fonts I had set, and the Default View. Reducing the Default View makes the view too small of sites such as my gmail and other email that have their own customizable view. Adjusting the email sites to accommodate for the reduced default view doesn't return the email view to how I want it. None of the other changes I made worked. How do I get the pages back to normal viewing size when I open the browser? Windows 10 Firefox 103.0
