Make Firefox remember zoom levels, colors for a site

Some websites have awful designs – weird color schemes and ridiculously small fonts that’s impossible to read without bringing tears to your eyes. Yes, you can adjust the zoom levels but Firefox can’t remember the settings. With the NoSquint addon you can:

  • Override the default text-only and full-page (both text and images) zoom levels for all websites
  • Enforce your own foreground and background colors
  • Remember your zoom levels and color settings per site, automatically applying them when you return.


NoSquint adds an Opera style zoom indicator to Firefox’s status bar. Click on it to open the settings box for that site and use the slider to adjust the zoom levels, and also text, background and link color, in case the site in question is using a horrible color scheme. Once you click on OK, the settings are saved. When you visit the site later, the custom color and zoom levels you have chosen are automatically applied.

You can also apply global settings that will be effective for all sites. There is an option to exclude specific sites from the global rules. The global setting feature is useful if you are using a laptop with small screen.
