Zoom In/Out Of Web Pages With Different Zoom Levels In Firefox [Extension]


Web pages can be easily zoomed in and out by using different combinations. You can either hold Ctrl key and move mouse wheel in upwards/downwards direction or simply clicking Ctrl + and Ctrl – can be used to zoom web page in and out. Also the text size can be changed according to your needs from View –> Zoom options. Zoom Page is a Firefox extension which is designed to bring ease in zooming in and out of web page or text only. It requires a single click to switch between both zooming modes.

Moreover, it offers a list of pre-defined zoom levels, which you can change according to your needs. For instance, by default Firefox has a single zoom level, which means that it zooms in and out over a certain level. This add-on brings a way to configure zooming levels so users can change them whenever required. It offer 5 different zooming levels:

  • Default: 30-50-67-80-90-100 upto 300.
  • Level 1: 25-30-67-80-90-100-100 upto 400.
  • Level 2: 25-50-75-90-100-110 upto 400.
  • Level 4: 25-33-50-67-80-90-100 upto 400.
  • Level 5: 30-50-67-80-90-100-100 upto 400.

The default zoom level is always present so that you can revert back to the original position anytime.  You will find the extension in the bottom-right corner of the window where it shows the current page size with zoom buttons on each side. A right-click on the percentage will toggle the mode. The percentage written in red signifies that now only text size can be changed.
