I have an extension, Default Zoom, that has quit working. It started a couple of updates ago.
I have tried different zoom extensions and they all act the same way. I get the 150% box in the url bar but the zoom is at 100%.
I have a 28 in monitor and 100% is just not enough. I can manually set the zoom to whatever I want but the next webpage
is back to 100%, even though I have the extension set to 150%.
Office PC:
28 in Monitor
Linux Mint 19.2 os
Firefox 69 beta12
Shop PC:
27 in Monitor
Windows 10
Firefox 69 beta12
This is happening on both Linux and Windows.
Any ideas?
The problem, I found by accident, was Firefox sync. I had settings ticked in sync and sync was resetting my zoom extension
from an old lap top that my grandchildren use sometimes.
Thanks for the thoughts and suggestions.

Do you see the same issue if you run the current release version of Firefox?

Links to these zoom extensions?

Per-site zoom levels are respected, with one exception: a zoom of 100% is always overridden after you reload a page. (Reason: There's a limitation in the WebExtension API. Other add-ons solve this by storing per-site zoom level entries for every website you visit. This add-on avoids storing those entries by only zooming when the zoom of the current tab is 100%, which is fine because 100% was too small for you anyway!)

So if you had a page at 90% or 110% (any page not at 100%), then Default would not affect those pages on reload.

Looks to work on my end on Nightly.
