I love the 'fit to witdth' feature in opera: Is there any way to replicate it on Firefox? That, and assignable shortcuts (the extension that gave that superpower to FF died with the upgrade to 3.0) prevent me to use FF seriously.

When I hit a site that doesn't work on Opera (with google, you are bound to; the new gmail displays wrong in Opera, and today I couldn't even log into google groups), I open FF... to close it again when I'm done because of the lack of those features.

Any ideas on how to get these working? Thanks

Maybe. It's not a sure thing, but perhaps the Default FullZoom Level add-on can do that. Give it a try.

That, and assignable shortcuts (the extension that gave that superpower to FF died with the upgrade to 3.0)

Are you talking about keyconfig? It's true that it's not listed any more on the Mozilla Add-ons website, but it seems to be alive at the mozillaZine Forums (last update: Sept 28th 2008)
I haven't tried it, so I can't confirm if it actually works with Firefox 3.0.x , but it probably does. Again, you lose nothing by trying

Hope it helps

Thanks city_zen.
No default zoom is not what I meant, but it's handy nonetheless.
And yes keyconfig was the plugin I was looking for.

Still, the 'fit to width' thing seems to be not there for firefox. Surprising.

Default FullZoom Level does do "fit to width", doesn't it? Well, at least it does for me.

no it doesn't. It scales down the fonts (!). It's stupid, it goes from unreadable because of long lines to unreadable because of small fonts.

What opera does is to 'force wrap'. It's a really smart idea. Try it.
This is particularly important if you use portrait screens.

I realized I asked this before a year ago or so:

No solutions, I guess.

Have you tried No Squint?

https://addons.mozilla.or...refox/search/?q=No+Squint

The key here is to adjust the image setting smaller.
And I can still have my text larger.
Then the page fits my screen and I can read it.
-Image includes the entire design of the site-
In most cases, I should say.

There are two ways of adjusting the page.
And remembers the settings for each page after it's set.
As well as a default setting in general.
It may do what you need.

Got it. I mainly use Default FullZoom Level to enlarge pages with a default width too narrow for me, not the other way round. (I don't use portrait screen.) Thanks for clarifying it, though.

I second No Squint. I haven't tried it in portrait mode because I don't have that kind of a monitor but for general usage it should function like a much improved but much more annoying fit to width + edit site prefence kind of firefox add-on.

Lol, sorry. It's both. It's much improved because when fit to width doesn't work, it messes up the page. No way around it. On the other hand, No Squint bypasses this because it allows you to set the text and page zoom separately so it's much better but you have to set it up correctly for all the sites you visit.
