    I know how resize the firefox web page. example ctrl+ +, ctrl+ -
    I have read there was a way to resize ALL the web pages, rather one by one. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    thanks ahead of time.

    Just open up the Firefox Options window, and click on the Content tab.

    Click the Advanced button across from the “Enable JavaScript”, and you should see the “Advanced JavaScript Settings” dialog.

    From here, you just have to uncheck the “Move or resize existing windows” checkbox, and you are done.

    I also found this if it's any help

    The NoSquint extension lets you set a global default zoom level. I haven't used it myself, but you can learn more here: NoSquint @ Add-ons for Firefox.

    I think this setting is related to whether a script can change the size and position of a window on the screen, and doesn't actually affect the size of the content in the window itself. Is there a scenario where you found this useful?

    i tried it- it does not seem to affect the size of the content.

    however i can think of a scenario although i did not try it. your webmail home page has advertising on it. you stop the ad from appearing. now you have an empty space on the page. so perhaps you can reduce the empty space and then you can room to see/read your mail.

    i guess this could apply to all those webpages that have advertising.

    what do you think?

    People who feel strongly about such things may already have posted a solutions for that site. There is a community for both the GreaseMonkey and Stylish extensions to tweak popular websites to a more attractive appearance. See http://userscripts.org/ and http://userstyles.org/ (both servers seem to be down at the moment, perhaps for maintenance).

    I haven't tried NoSquint myself. Some extensions put a new entry on one of the menus (View? Tools?) for their settings dialog. For others, you access it through Tools > Add-ons > Extensions -- when you highlight the extension its Options button is enabled. Hopefully you can find the Zoom Options tab through one of these routes.
