Make Web Pages "Always Fit Window" toggle 'Y/N'.

Post by Steves.Place » Sat Mar 06, 2010 12:08 am

I noticed this is a feature in Opera . . . "Make Web Pages Always Fit Window" - 'toggle Y/N'. . . and seems to work quite well. Can this option be placed in both Avant and Orca browsers? It would also be nice to see that feature in Firefox 3.5/6+++ as well. :)

I personally get really tired of horizontal scrolling. I think most web pages are actually designed to fit the window, but that is just a guess based on most actually do fit, with a few exceptions. However this feature would eliminated those web pages that don't seem to fit. :)

Anyway, that is my request.

By that I mean "Window Width." I suppose it should be obvious what I meant, but one should never assume anything and again, I was not able to edit the original post. *Why is that?*

You are given a certain amount of time (5mins?) to edit your post, for obvious reasons.

Editing is limited to 10 minutes. Some spam bots make use of editing old posts after a certain amount of time because old posts are less likely to be visited by real people to check for inappropriate links but are still regularly scanned by search engine spiders, thus the links still serve their purpose.

Ok noted, and thanks, although it really was a rhetorical question. *grins*

Anyone going to comment on my request for . . .
"Make All Web Pages "Always Fit Window WIDTH" toggle 'Y/N' or toggle on/off?"

I'm guessing this issue has at some point in the past been visited, especially since Opera came into operation and had that handy feature, I think right from the start?

Anyway it seems like a good feature to add to both Orca and Avant as well as Firefox.

But I can't find any Firefox forums to actually ask this question on, over at Mozilla/Firefox. Their pre asked questions leave no ability to enter your own question if it is not on their 6 question list.

There doesn't seem to be a "Feature Request Forum" at Firefox?

Nor for that matter a "Bug Report Forum" where you can enter your own descriptions. That seems 'a lot' self defeating to me.

I spent over an hour looking for just that; a place where I could enter my own questions or feature requests. All I found was a chat feature with no one or even 'Admins' around or on line, and no way to enter any data of my own. Again that seems 'Self Defeating' to me.

Have you searched for an IE or Firefox addon that emulates the Opera feature - I'm sure that there would be something out there.

Ah, actually, I did look for just that. I did not find anything, but I could have missed it somehow. If you know of one, point me to it and I'll give it a try.
