What is Fixed Zoom?
Fixed Zoom is a Firefox add-on that resolves the browser's inability to set a default zoom level different from 100%. This extension allows users to define a general zoom level for all visited pages, or customize zoom levels for specific sites. It uses two permissions, Storage and Access, that facilitates the storage of your zoom preferences and the matching of rules for certain websites.

Summary

By design Firefox doesn't allow to set a default zoom. Websites will always display with a 100% zoom unless you manually set it for a specific site, in which case the browser will the remember the new value for the site but only until the history or saved sites data are deleted.

What this extension allows is to set a default zoom different from 100% with which sites will load. You can also set a different zoom for specific websites.

Bugs, problems, suggestions or feature requests can be done by email to [email protected] or from the extension repository.

Notes about the permissions
