I hadn't noticed the zoom level display in the bottom right-hand corner of the statusbar in IE9.
That looks kinda nice-to-have (not "highly desirable", to me), but there's nothing similar for "zoom" that I can find in the Firefox about:config page.
So I hunted about and found the add-on: NoSquint
After installing, it gives the zoom readout in the bottom RHS (in the stausbar). It has an added bonus - for me - in that it gives you the ability to set the rules for background colour and text colour and zoom defaults, by site or globally for all sites, and set exceptions to those rules.
It works great. I've been looking
for something like this for a while now!
I often prefer to have a black background and green glowing text - like the old IBM 3270 "green screen"
terminals. I had only been able to get it on Chromium so far.
If Firefox were being used, then this could be just the ticket for @crabby3
, as the opening post says:
...I don't always remember to reset back to 100%.
If Firefox were being used with NoSquint
, then you could set the zoom level for specific web pages, and never need to bother resetting zoom to 100%. Set and forget.
Something new learned again today.
