I have a shrunk website problem too, but opposite. When I edit it it's normal size, but when you go to the website itself it's shrunk! My url is gurusoorya.com

Thanks for your help....

None, sorry! Have you tried a different browser or a different network?

Looks okay on Explorer, so it's a Firefox thing. Hopefully it will go away as mysteriously as it came!

The most logical explanation for the reduced site is that your zoom settings on your browser requires resetting.

You can for example have 4 tabs open on your Firefox browser and one way or another have accidentally reduced your zoom and locked it in for your website. The zoom settings are only locked in for your domain and its pages but when in that same tab you open another website (other than your domain) it reverts back to a normal sized site. This is because Firefox does not lock in the zoom for that tab or browser but for the domain itself that it was reduced for.

To return your viewing to normal:

1) Open your website in your browser (the reduced one ;)
2) Click the "View" link in your browser toolbar next to "Edit"
3) Hover over "Zoom"
4) Make sure that there is NO checkmark next to "Zoom text only"
5) Click "Reset"

Your website should revert back to normal.

Certain times this reduction in size can also be found to caused by a virus or adware on a person's computer. I am not saying that this is the case here but if this does not solve the problem I would recommend a complete virus scan to rule it out.

Good luck

Hi Ed,

I checked and the Zoom setting was not on (curiously when I played with it, the website got bigger when I did turn it on, but not to original size). I scanned my computer with Windows Defender and found nothing. I appreciate your help, though. Any other ideas?

Update: Oh, geez. I googled "website looks small firefox" and found an answer. I just 'Reset' the Zoom setting. Duh! You were right that it was a Zoom setting thing. Thank you for your help and patience, and thank god for the internet forums. :-)
