Need help with problem after Firefox update

Posted by deew (My Page) on

I updated Firefox to the newest version 22. When I opened it afterwards, the top portion where the tabs and address bar are, is huge, as are the icons there. It's over three inches from top to bottom. Above the Taskbar is also quite large. My monitor is a widescreen, and I now have only about four and a half inches of viewing space. I can change the webiste font sizes, so that's no big deal.

I've had Firefox for many years and have never had this problem after an update. How do I shrink the top and bottom sections to where I want tthem?

Sorry, zep. I couldn't find anything that helped. One thing I saw was someone saying: I was able to disable scaling by setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1 instead of -1. Now everything looks like it did before the change. It might as well have been written in Greek, because I sure didn't understand what he was saying. I'm thinking of maybe going back to version 21.
