How do I reset the zoom level in Firefox back to the default?

share|improve this question
Is it Ctrl+0? I ask as a comment because I don't have FF handy to test. :) – DMA57361 Jan 20 '11 at 12:45

Select View » Zoom » Reset from the menu.

Alternatively press Cmd + 0 on Mac OS X, or Ctrl + 0 on Windows and Linux.

The menu no longer exists in Firefox, but the keyboard shortcut still works. – Burhan Ali Aug 9 '13 at 22:06
@BurhanAli Still exists on Firefox 23 on OS X and Firefox 20 on Windows. What version and OS are you referring to? – Daniel Beck Aug 9 '13 at 23:04
My mistake. It seems the standard menu bar is hidden now until you hit Alt. I don't use Firefox regularly enough these days so to me it looked like the menu bar was no longer there at all. – Burhan Ali Aug 11 '13 at 19:49

Go to View > Zoom > reset
alternatively you can press ctrl+0

Go to "View" in the menu, then "Zoom" and then "Normal". Or just press 'Ctrl + 0' (Zero)

To reset the zoom level on all pages go to about:config and set browser.zoom.siteSpecific to false.
