I found the solution by reading changelog New display option: Use Resample for zooming (Menu: View->Display options) So from "View" menu, select "Display options" and turn off "Use resample".

Select View » Zoom » Reset from the menu. Alternatively press Cmd + 0 on Mac OS X, or Ctrl + 0 on Windows and Linux.

Apparently this is some hot new feature Firefox introduced in 2013. I found a thread discussing it, where a lot of Firefox users seem to be unimpressed. So it turns out there's a setting in Windows designed to stop text getting too small on high-resolution devices. You can find it by searching for "text size" in control panel. On my machine, it's set by ...

It's a known bug with Chromium, the source code on which Chrome was built. Be sure to star it! Update More up-to-date related bug report: code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=149881 – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007'

SysInternals ZoomIt from Microsoft is nice and easy. Try it out: http://live.sysinternals.com/ZoomIt.exe

For MS Word Mac: You zoom by holding the Command and CTRL key while scrolling the mouse wheel. http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20070113120847965

There is a solution using AutoHotKey posted on google groups: Using Logitech Performance Mouse MX... Downloaded AutoHotKey software In the AutoHotkey.ahk file, added these to do nothing for Cntrl+MouseWheelScrolling ^WheelDown::return ^WheelUp::return

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

Try option+control+scroll. (This works on the touchpad in a MacBook Pro. I don't have a Magic Mouse.)

The Firefox addon NoSquint allows you to adjust the text-only and full-page (both text and images) zoom levels as well as color settings both globally (for all sites) and per site.

Zoom is actually saved in the PDF file when it's written. What you want is the restore last view settings: Restore Last View Settings When Reopening Documents Determines whether documents open automatically to the last viewed page within a work session. It should be under Preferences as well.

You can use Ctrl together with +, - and 0 to increase, decrease and reset site zoom.

Commands: Ctrl + + to zoom Ctrl + - to zoom out Ctrl + 0 to reset

This is user configurable from Firefox, without the need for any add-ons. In the address line, type: about:config Scroll down or search for the preference name: browser.zoom.siteSpecific Double-click to change the value to false Now your zoom settings will carry over from site to site.

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

I don't know of any way to disable scrolling, but you could use Ctrl+0 to return to 100% at any time--no need to refresh the page.

Previously, I "Seriously ... cannot imagine a scenario where you're accidentally zooming." The hot keys involve Control-Mousewheel, or Control-Keypad-plus-or-minus. (If you'll excuse the description). These aren't near or similar to Control-C and Control-V. So you must be holding the control key while meaning to scroll in the document. It was just pointed ...

On my Macbook Air, I can hold "control" and "command" and slide two fingers on the touchpad down and up to zoom in and out, respectively, within Microsoft Word 2011.

It doesn't look like its possible within chrome at this point, but you could do it from the mouse side. Depending on the drivers for your mouse, you could set ctrl-scroll as a "shortcut" to actually do nothing - essentially capturing the combination and throwing it away. Some drivers will even let you specify this for only within a certain application, at ...

This can be achieved in IrfanView: Open the first image. Zoom to the desired level and position. On the IrfanView menu bar, select View->Lock Zoom (Shift+L) and View->Keep Scroll position Browse other images.

For a quick and dirty solution I found @ http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/chrome/discuss-chrome/-rtDLZmN9bk Followed rd2020's comment for AutoHotkey (as I am already running it for other things) Downloaded AutoHotKey software In the AutoHotkey.ahk file, added these to do nothing for Cntrl+MouseWheelScrolling #IfWinActive ahk_class ...

I checked my Firefox (10.0.1) and there is only 1 item in the "customize toolbar" window related to zooming, which is + / - zoom controls. When I add it, it only shows the + / - buttons, and not the zoom level. Then I checked for possible addons that may be of help. Default FullZoom Level seems promising. It indicates zoom level in statusbar.

This is simple, but a guess, unless you can tell me otherwise. a .PNG file is capable to storing vector based graphics, but in most situations, when/if you are taking a screenshot or similar, it is stored as raster graphics / bitmap. So, if you are zooming in to a (bitmap/raster based) picture, typically, the system will attempt to automatically ...

What is going on is a programmatic choice difference between Windows XP and 7. In Windows XP, the photo viewer, when zooming the image past 100% scaling, would use an algorithm to smooth out hard edges. This is antialiasing. Because the image does not contain unlimited information since it doesn't have an unlimited resolution, if it is not smoothed after ...

Try ZoomIt for the zooming (free from SysInternals). I prefer ZoomIt more than Windows Magnifier. It even allows me to draw on the screen -- perfect for presentations. The thing is, you'll still have to use the keyboard to activate ZoomIt; zooming in and out can be done using the mouse wheel. The only way to get exactly -- at least based on my knowledge -- ...

You can do this as follows (I tried it with Firefox 10.0.2 here): Type about:config in the address bar Filter for toolkit.zoomManager.zoomValues This will show you the various zoom "steps" the browser has. The steps are specified as decimal numbers (representing precentages of the original, so .3 means 30% of original), separated by a ,. See Tweak ...

As Ashley mentioned, this is due to the per display dpi scaling in Windows 8. A noble attempt to make things not look so tiny on high dpi displays but in some cases, it breaks the web on "sort of high dpi" screens as many of you are seeing. And you thought IE was done doing that! Well, the folks working on the rendering engine might be, but somebody else is ...

As previous answer stated, it was introduced as a feature. But it CAN be overridden. I found this post explaining the 'feature' and how to revert the behavior. if you want to set the text size/pixel density in firefox different from that of your system's settings like it was handled in prior versions, enter about:config into the firefox address bar ...

Unlike Windows, the Mac Microsoft keyboard driver doesn't use a commands.xml file for the configuration. Instead, it uses a binary file, which makes it tough to modify. The configuration file is stored at: /Users/YOUR_NAME/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.keyboard.pref With a bit of reverse-engineering, it's possible to determine enough of the binary ...

I got it now. I can right-click on the page, then select Single Page Continuous. With this setting, choosing Zoom to Fit Window will zoom to the page width.
