You can stop Firefox respecting the system zoom level, but why not just change the system zoom level then?

Chrome not respecting the zoom is a bug, which I'm pretty sure they've fixed in developer versions.

Ruh roh! So it's either make Windows 8 ugly, get used to it, or switch back to Windows 7.

You can zoom websites (or just text if you select that option) in Firefox by holding control and scrolling your mouse wheel.

This bit of info could be completely irrelevant but we're talking about zoom.. works the same way in both IE and Chrome.

Tried that, but it seems to be per page and not global. Unless there's an about:config setting.

Edit: browser.zoom.siteSpecific Tada!

Edit: What is the default layout.css.devPixelsPerPx setting?

If you flip the "browser.tabs.remote" pref to true in a Nightly build, it tries to start up in multi-process mode.

It doesn't work, but it seems they're still working on that goal.

If you're referring to places like the OneNote webapp, then yes, I'm wondering when they'll fix it, if it's even possible, or if it's even something Mozilla would be responsible for.

I have been kinda busy lately so I hadn't had time to mess with the new click to play plugin options until now... and wow, they are great. I had been keeping plugins always on because I figured click to play would be too annoying in the long run.. but white listing specific sites through the page info/permissions window is a breeze, it's basically the same setup I have with cookies (I keep cookies until I close Firefox, then I just allow sites like neowin.net where I want to stay logged in).

i have my theory, they wont bring back the use of the Global Menu, but they'll enable it for Fx23 only, global menu is dead. i reckon they'll replace it with the new AppMenu instead from Fx24 onwards

anyone wanna see what this New ugly Panel looks like. go here http://msujaws.wordp.../13/were-jamun/

I think it looks very good, seems people here are freaking out about any type of change in the UI :p

The only thing I'm not a fan of is the tab strip (I like curved tabs but the curves in australis are far too "overdone" or "pronounced", but that should be easily changable with themes or a stylish script.)

The only things I don't like about it are the tabs and the ugly blue color they keep using.

Is the new content UI panel in any builds other than UX? Like will it be in 22 Beta 1, 23 Aurora, or Nightly 24? Also, is there a link to 22 Beta 1 yet? Thanks!

Update

tl;dr: Australis will be landing in Firefox 25 (week of June 24th).

The schedule we've previously been working towards was targeting landing

Australis "early" in the Firefox 24 cycle. This target was set for two

main purposes:

1) Land as soon as we met the minimal mozilla-central quality criteria,

and use the full remainder of the cycle to finish the baseline Australis

implementation.

2) Land in the first week or so in order to have a full cycle to shake

out any "unknown unknowns" that are sure to be discovered, since this is

a major UI change. A backout would be cumbersome, so we want a high

degree of confidence that we can ride the train we land in through to

release.

As the first week of the 24 cycle has approached, it's become clear that

the amount of remaining work would make landing "early in 24" unwise. If

we landed late in 24, we'd be scrambling to finish work in Aurora, and

have no margin to deal with unexpected issues.

So, instead we're going to land in the beginning of the Firefox 25

cycle, with an Australis that's more refined and polished than had been

planned to land in 24. A bit later, but it'll make for a much nicer

first impression.

If you're interested in the gory details of the revised schedule, we're

laying out new milestones at https://etherpad.mozilla.org/australis-schedule

https://mail.mozilla.org/pipermail/firefox-dev/2013-May/000405.html

doesnt surprise me, i thought this would happen

HiDPI has landed in the beta channel and still looks all kinds of wrong even if you set it to not respect the OS scaling. The fact that there is no easy way to tune the browser should make the average user happy. Ugh.
