Need Addon to fit page to screen width

    I posted this a few days ago, along with another question. I never
    got any
    response to this part of the message.

    Is there any addon for this?
    I much prefer Firefox over Opera, but this scrolling from left to
    right is really
    getting on my nerves.

    Original question.......

    I just installed Opera for the first time since I
    abandoned it about 5 years ago. I will have to admit that Opera is
    greatly improved since the last time I used it. Yet, given the
    choice, I still prefer Firefox over both Opera and IE. With one
    exception. Opera has a feature to "Fit the Width" on web pages. I
    really wish Firefox had that. I dont have the best eyesight, so my
    highest resolution I use on my monitor is 800x600. The problem is
    that many websites are larger these days, and if anything drives me
    bonkers, it's having to scroll the page from left to right to read the
    text. Is there any sort of addon for Firefox to do this same thing?

    Type about:config in location bar and hit Enter
    Type browser.enable_automatic_image_resizing in filter bar. make sure
    the value is true.
