Ability to set the default zoom level for all sites is the most valuable feature of NoSquint. Independent settings for full-page zoom and text-only zoom also come handy.

You can also configure what pages are part of the same site with regard to remembered zoom settings. That's called the "Exceptions" feature as of version 2.0.3. It requires a bit of learning how to use it. Read the help document before editing any exceptions.

Running Vista with Firefox 3.6.8. My machine goes nuts with the mouse moving all over and changing screens without input. I had to uninstall it. Too bad because when it worked it was perfect.

Probably Full Page Zoom

In the current versions on NoSquint, out of the box it will set the default full page zoom level to 120%. This may be the cause of your sluggishness, but unfortunately there's nothing NoSquint can do to to improve that as it's core Firefox functionality.

You can try setting the full page zoom level to 100%, and perhaps setting text zoom to 120% (or so) instead.

Very nice, but:

Still not available for Fx 4.0. Author's website is down.

This addon caused Firefox to run certain graphical effects very sluggishly on my new Mac Mini. Perhaps it was in conflict with some other addon, but disabling this fixed the problem. I liked the options it provides, but I can't sacrifice the performance.

Probably not NoSquint

It seems very unlikely NoSquint would be directly responsible for making graphics performance sluggish. Rather I suspect that Firefox native page zoom (which NoSquint merely hooks) is slow. You might have a better experience if you changed the default zoom type from Full Zoom to Text Only zoom. If Full Zoom is too slow on your system, there's nothing I can do about it; it will have to be addressed in Firefox.

I would be lost without this addon, I'm in front of the computer all day and want to make text as large as possible so my eyes don't get strained.

But I would like to see the following feature: a button or hot-key that allows instant switching between the current zoom levels and no zoom levels. That is, sometimes I want to see a site at 100% zoom / 100% text zoom. Right now I have to go in and manually change these. I'd like a way to go from my default zoom levels (120% zoom / 130% text zoom) to 100%/100% with one button or hotkey. And then pressing the same button or hotkey would restore my personal zoom settings. Sometimes I want to see a site the way it was designed for a moment, and then switch back to my own zoom levels. In fact, I often want to do this.

A button or hotkey like that would make this addon absolutely perfect.

Isn't this add-on redundant in FF 3.6.6 ?

I mean, what more does it offer than FF's View/Zoom options ?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.3). 

Colors and defaults

It's not redundant. NoSquint provides the ability to set the default zoom levels, which is missing from Firefox natively. Also it provides an interface to set custom per-site colors. It has much more flexibility in defining what a "site" is (through Exceptions) compared to native Firefox.

Works fine except for one thing. The pages I need this for are lessons made in flash.
When I zoom in I can't see anything but the top left corner

Works as advertized Rated 5 out of 5 stars

...on FF 3.6.3, at least it does for me. Large fonts are a must for accessibility on my 1280x1024 FP monitor, and some sites require extensive juggling of full/text zoom settings to render properly with zoom set greater than 100%. I use the NoSquint exceptions extensively to remember multiple settings for the different sections (eg. forum on the same host as the rest of a site) of sites I visit most often.

Here are some exceptions I find particularly useful (I see nowhere else to post them):

[**]/[**].txt - apply same settings to all *.txt text files, regardless of URL. Set the zoom to fit 80+ columns of fixed width text in the viewport, yet large enough to be read easily.

/[*]:/[**].txt - same as above, on all local *.txt files, regardless of path or location (for Windows).

/[*]:[**]/* - remember setting for each local file (other than *.txt if above exception is also set) by file name, regardless of path or location (for Windows).

Exceptions work as designed

I believe you are misunderstanding what Exceptions are. When in the Exceptions tab, click the Help button for details. (I'm prepared to admit that "Exceptions" isn't a terribly good name for the actual feature. Happy to receive suggestions.)

It's a good idea. Just what I need . BUT it assigns ctr-mousewheel to zoom instead of pg-up/down that I always had it set to. If I disable this in options I get no action whatsoever. I had to uninstall to get back functionality.

Tried Zoom Toolbar, NoSquint, and Zoom Page among others.
NoSquint seems to be the best for the most options like remembering your zoom settings for each page, but lacks the status bar option of text/image zooming that Zoom page offers…I would give 5 stars if we could integrate the 2 add-ons.

i cannot thank you enough!!!! sure its cool if you want to make web pages consistent with your browser theme, but for people with low vision, this is absolutely indispensable. i, too, would like to express my gratitude with a donation, and wish there was a link to do so. again, this add-on makes such a big difference for people with vision problems, it aught to be a built-in function for every browser out there. speaking of which, i would love to see this available on opera and chrome.

some feature requests/suggestions: an icon button for the menu bar, and the ability to save profiles for sites, such that you can switch between pre-configured settings. for example, sometimes you want a black background with yellow text, and other times you just want the default color settings, but you still want to keep the text size the same... minor details.

it is exceptional just as it is! please keep up the good work and know that this plugin tremendously improves (or even makes possible) web browsing for a great many people. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

Awesome for HDTV Surfing Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I came across this on rockyourfirefox.com, and it is a godsend! I surf on my 42" HDTV, and at 12 feet at the native resolution of 1920x1080, there is a crapload of squinting going on on the regular. ctrl+scrollwheel had become my best friend, until I found this, where I can set a default zoom level for everything! If you surf the web on your HDTV, get this NOW! NAOW!
