Tor Browser forgets zoom level

Reported by: moonchild Owned by: tbb-team

Severity: Normal Keywords: tbb-torbutton, tbb-fingerprinting-resolution, tbb-usability

Reviewer: Sponsor:


OS: windows 7 64 bit
version: tor-browser-2.4.12-alpha-2_en-US
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Visit a website
2) Zoom in
3) Close tab
4) Return to website
Expected Results: Firefox remembers your zoom level

Actual Results: Zoom level resets to default.

I use tor to circumvent the Great Firewall of China, and have unchecked "don't record browsing history" so I can use Tor as my daily browser. I also have a high DPI monitor, so having to constantly zoom is a major usability issue for me.

If to open link in a new tab, result will be the same.
Current TBB changes reported desktop screen size when zooming, so never use zoom for now! (But how to do it on a high DPI LCD?!)
TBB isn't usable without zoom on high DPI, but reports rare resolutions for fingerprinting with it.

+1 for closing this. 3 years old, and resetting zoom per new tab is a feature, not a bug. As for DPI, there are several other tickets open about this, so I don't think this ticket does anything being left open
