Handy. Like the reset button.
Great addon, it's simple and working perfectly.
Use this all the time to zoom out websites that don't wrap their content to fit a smaller monitor size. Really like the reset icon that allows you to instantly jump back to the default zoom when you no longer need to be zoomed in or out.
I prefer this one over the pre-installed one as it has a reset button.
Don't worry. This addon is still working even now in Fox 8.0. I use it without any trouble.
Just push the max. version in the rdf File to the number you need or
set it to "*" if you are not afraid of future versions :) .
I use this extension all the time. Would you PLEASE update it so it works with Fx version 4?
please update FF4
I love this add-on. But it needs to be updated for 4.0
Also it needs to available for Thunderbird.
Please update it its usage and don't change anything else.
It works perfectly as is.
the best for me, i keep it ! great job !
No issues, love it, thanks! :)
My favorite zoom tool for "10 foot viewing" and easing eye strain. Try em all then try this you will keep it.
Easy Add-On. Good recommendation for your first Add-On. Once you start adding-on, you'll never stop.
After the add-on is installed, you'll notice that no buttons have been added to your toolbar. That's because there's One More Step...
Right Click on an empty spot on the toolbar to open the "Customize Toolbar" window. Scroll down to the bottom of the window to find the new "Zoom Toolbar" buttons. Drag the Zoom Toolbar buttons to a happy place on your toolbar, where you'd like the Zoom Toolbar buttons to live. The Zoom Toolbar buttons will now be gone from the Customize Toolbar window, and will appear instead on the toolbar.
Close the Customize Toolbar window, and you're in business.
(By the way, while the Customize Toolbar window is open, you can drag All of the elements in the toolbar to different locations [on the toolbar] of your choosing. THAT will keep you busy for a few evenings.)
Any other Firefox windows that were already opened before adjusting the toolbar layout will not immediately be affected by changing the toolbar on that first window. But any succeeding window that you open will include your new Zoom Toolbar buttons, and any other adjustments you made to the layout of your toolbar.
There are three Zoom Toolbar buttons -- Zoom In, Zoom Out, and Reset. At first, I was disappointed that there was not also a button for Zoom Text Only (an option on the menu), but I soon realized that I don't toggle that state very often, and I don't need it to be on the toolbar. (I could even do without the Reset button.) So I'm happy with the three buttons.
Depending on your position as you're curled up with your notebook, sometimes it's easiest to change the text size by clicking on a Zoom Toolbar button a few times; sometimes it's easiest to hold the Ctrl button with one hand and spin the mouse wheel with the other hand; sometimes it's easiest to hold the Ctrl button and click the + or - with the other hand; and it's never easiest to adjust the text size using the Firefox menu. Certainly, every webpage needs to have its text size adjusted for maximum comfort, and when I'm on the notebook, the Zoom Toolbar buttons are the way I usually use to adjust the text size.
If you adjust the text size on one window, any other window you switch to afterward will get the same adjustment, regardless of whether it needed its text size to be adjusted or not. That is the way Firefox 3.6.9 behaves -- it is not caused by Zoom Toolbar. Of course, any undesired text-size adjustments on subsequent windows can be easily un-adjusted with the Zoom Toolbar buttons. It's not a big deal, but allowing each window to have its own zoom-level will take an update from Firefox -- it's not something that Zoom Toolbar can fix, methinks.
Still has compatibility issues with many other add-ons. Developer could fix it but seems to be too lazy.
1. needs smaller icons (lose the magnifying glass)
2. replace "=" with a drop down letting me select some predefined sizes (50%, 80%, 90%, 100%, 110% 120%,150%) [See Opera]
3. Other than that, works exactly as defined and does fine. As it stands, it's very close to 5 stars.
STILL the simplest / best. A+++
Excellent work! I really enjoyed this tool. Simple setup, and it does exactly what I need. 5 out of 5!
Déçue de nue pouvoir utiliser cette extension sur THUNDERBIRD, que j'utilise si souvent sur FIREFOX
(voir message précédent sur l'usage fait sur Firefox);
N'existe-t'il RIEN qui permette de lire le texte des messages reçus sur THUNDERBIRD ?
Super cette extension Zoom Toolbar.
J'utilise ZOOM + aussi bien pour lire plus facilement du texte (surtout si je n'ai pas mes lunettes) ou pour regarder une image plus précisement.
Avec Zoom -, je vois voir l'ensemble de la page et trouve rapidement les termes recherchés, signalés et surlignés par HighlightAll.
Cette extension est tellement formidable que je l'utilise tous les jours et j'avais oublié que c'était une extension que j'avais rajouté au logiciel initial.
J'aurai souhaité ajouter cette extension à THUNDERBIRD et suis déçue de ne pouvoir le faire. Je n'ai rien trouvé qui corresponde. (Peut-être Zoomie mais ce n'est pas à jour).
Merci pour votre travail,
Unlike the old Textsize toolbar, this zoom toolbar seems to apply the zoom settings to all open tabs. The older Textsize toolbar confined its activities to the current tab only.
Still, a convenient way to mouse the zoom level up or down...
This is described as superseding "Text size toolbar" for Thunderbird, but it isn't compatible with Thunderbird.
Why is that?
I also use the Firefox Default controls of -
Ctrl + Scroll Up (to Zoom-in )
Ctrl + Scroll Down (to Zoom-out )
Ctrl + 0 (to Reset the Zooming Back to Original Size.)
This one didn't work for me either. No buttons on Tool bar what gives?
Very useful addon, but I'd like it if the I could place the buttons separately on the toolbar. I only need the "back to actual size" button. ((Also, I would prefer if I could configure it to be on the status bar.))
When we'll see a 3.5 version?
I just pushed the version-bump through last night, so should be working fine for 3.5.*
