Firefox 22 - Resize Todoist Display


I've just upgraded to Firefox 22 and found that they've implemented something related to the logical DPI from Window 7.

In short, because I am using the custom text size of Medium 125%, which is shown as the windows default, the Todoist sidebar add-on in Firefox has become "large" - big fonts, big spacing, big width, etc. This has the effect of widening the minimum width of the Todoist window and reducing the number of tasks displayed, as they are each wider

Setting the DPI to smaller (100%), the Todoist display is correspondingly reduced. Unfortunately, the smaller size DPI in Windows is smaller than needed for other applications - the Windows default is fine.

Q: Is there a hack or actual adjustment between the Windows DPI setting and the display of Todoist in Firefox 22?

I can increase or decrease the browser display (e.g., control -/+), but that has no effect on the Todoist display.

Non-urgent, everything continues to work, just in a really big display way.

There is no hack or setting directly related to Todoist, but there may be a workaround for you.

If you right click on the Firefox Icon, how ever you open it up, and go to Properties, then head to Compatibility, and check off "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings".

This should make Firefox act like it did before version 22.

Let me know if that solves the issue.

Brendon -

Thank you. It turns out that this did not change the size of the Browser contents or the Todoist display, perhaps because I am not using the high DPI setting, simply the default setting.

Since FF22 was posted, I've seen more comments popping up about really large browser fonts and the relatively complex solution, so I just went back to FF21, thinking that others will drive some change for FF22 and, perhaps, for Todoist.

I'll let it settle out to see whether other options emerge.
