Hi I have got a new monitor.. and now Firefox browser seems to be too big, not the viewed content but the things like tabs, bookmarks etc.. the Browser itself is too big for the screen. Does anyone know how to change this?

 

Edit I have just set the settings to 1366 x 768 via display settings this has made firefox right but the screen itself needs to move to the right by an inch.. these black towards to the right.. Everything needs to move to the right a bit more.. as everything to the left is cut off...

I'm still unclear as to what it is, exactly, that you're trying to accomplish with regard to Firefox itself.

 

I know that, as far as displayed content, you can use CTRL+0 to go back to 100% if you've used either CTRL+MinusSign to make it smaller or CTRL+PlusSign to make it larger.

 

The browser itself follows the system settings unless tweaked otherwise.

You can also click control and use your mouse wheel to make it larger or smaller.
