    Guess eyes wear out after 75+ erars of use - I often use the "Zoom" settings in Firefox.
    I'm not really sure if this is a Fiefox or a Windows XP function, hence the double-post.

    Is there a way where the "Zoomed" settings can be saved, so that they will be in use any time when I
    start the programs, rather than having to set them every time?

    I believe the "zoom" feature you spoke of, is a function of Firefox, and *not* part
    of the Windows OS.

    Windows, by default, includes a very crude "Magnifier" utility, that starts as a
    re-sizeable box that shows a magnified area around where you point your cursor (to
    start it, type : "magnify.exe" into the "Run" box).

    This does not sound anything like your "zoom"...

    Otherwise, Internet Explorer has only a choice of "text sizes" to play with,
    configured by going to the top menus and choosing : View > Text Size ...and
    choosing from the five available possibilities.

    Not that it matters to the original poster now, but...

    Enter this in your browser address bar.


    Then make sure this setting is True.


    Also, if you don't want pop-up windows to change the zoom of the
    main window, like when you are looking at a picture that you want
    magnified more than usual, make sure this setting is False.
