    Firefox gurus: Webpages resizing themselves if WWW prefix is present (v3.6)

    I'm having this problem on one copy of Firefox only; IE is fine, and every other FF installation that I have on my other units do not replicate this problem.

    That said, in short, some (not all) pages will resize themselves to around 95% of their actual size if their WWW. prefix is left in the address bar. Take it out, and the site returns to normal.

    The following are two screenshots of the same website layered one over the other. The smaller variant is with the WWW. prefix; the larger has the prefix omitted:



    To check this further, I also created an .HTML file with nothing but text in it, and uploaded it to my server. Same thing. It resizes everything - text, images, you name it.

    I've done countless Google searches to no avail; everyone else is talking about HTML code triggering window resizing (which isn't my problem).

    Any insights?

    I'm sure it could be set up to behave as you describe.

    Other than that, if you're comfortable poking around in about:config, you could search for strings that contain "zoom" and see if anything looks odd or non-default.
    Found it. Someone had run the zoom-out command on one of the WWW pages. Oddly enough, it didn't carry over to the page variants without that prefix. Resetting the zoom on the WWW-prefixed site did the trick.

    yep... they were identical on my FF 3.6 install. But the zoom page function is remembered by FF by address.
