Websites are larger then browser

By DanaNicole76 ·
I HATE having the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom. But I can't seem to find an answer on the internet.
I have tried changing some screen resolutions with no luck.

I am using Windows XP Pro
with the latest Firefox (3.5 I believe?)

Thanks in advanced for any help you can give.

P.S. and yes I tried having my browser maximized

It is sort of website-dependent

It is in the code for the pages. Best thing you can do is to increase your screen resolution, if possible. (This may not help with all sites, depending, again, on how they are coded.)

If the browser has a zoom function, that would help, but zooming out will make text smaller.

but I know what you are talking about when you say it's in the code. My problem is that it didn't start doing that until recently. So I think somewhere a setting got messed up but what one?

So this is a recent change?

by seanferd In reply to prefer not to zoom

Does everything else besides websites in the browser look normal? If not, you may have changed the aspect ratio of the screen, but this should be fairly obvious if you had.

Do you have a sidebar open in FF? That'll do it. I'm not finding anything else so far in FF3.5 that would affect the view in this manner.

It's a puzzler.

... guess we need to see a picture of the monitor and how the windows are arranged from edge to edge (not just a screen grab), so we can see what it is he's seeing.

I have no idea how to change that

Besides being website dependent.......

Check your internet options in the control panel. If you've got it set to always use your fonts/sizes, it will override web site settings even if you're using a different browser.

Now this seems to have helped

I don't really like making websites adhere to my selection of fonts but hey it works and I like my font anyways!
So thanks!!

since the override

I haven't had to many problems. Although I really don't like having to change all the webpages to my own settings, it's worth it.

'Ctrl+ /Ctrl-' might help ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Websites are larger then ...

But as seanferd has already pointed out, it'll make all the text on the screen (inside the 'bigger' window) smaller.

*Perhaps it's time to invest in a bigger monitor?
