Firefox 22.0 Large Text Workaround

FirefoxDue to code changes with the Firefox browser, some may notice that text on websites is blown up and much larger than before, and also favicons and graphics seem blurry.

The code changes are for HiDPI support for high resolution display but many users have complained that alot websites text look much too big with the latest update, causing a horizontal sidebar on most websites.

1. In the location bar of your Firefox browser type about:config and press enter.
