Firefox guidelines

Firefox on Windows

Zoom

Firefox allows you to adjust the size of web page content. There are multiple methods available to do so.

  • Go to the View menu and find the Zoom options. In this menu, there is also an option to apply zoom only to text.
  • Press Ctrl + + (plus key) to zoom in.
  • Press Ctrl + - (minus key) to zoom out.
  • Press Ctrl + 0 (zero) to return to default size.
  • Hold Ctrl and mouse scroll wheel up to zoom in.
  • Hold Ctrl and mouse scroll wheel down to zoom out.

Firefox will apply the chosen zoom level to all web pages on that domain, for example all pages on sky.com

You can also press F11 to enter or exit Full Screen mode, or find the option in the View menu.

High Contrast Mode

Firefox is set up to automatically work with any high contrast themes you use on your device.

For example, at any time, you can press Left Alt key + Left Shift key + Print Screen to toggle high contrast on or off on Windows. This essentially inverts the colour scheme, giving you white writing on a black background.

Note: When switching this feature on, you may also need to select Yes in a dialogue box before it will take effect.

You can manage this setting and choose different themes by going to Start menu > Settings > Ease of Access > High Contrast.

Fonts & Colours

Firefox has a range of options available to customise fonts and colours.

Go to the Firefox menu and select Options.

Next, select Language & Appearance in the General panel of the dialogue box. Explore the options.

Add-Ons

Firefox allows you to download and install browser add-ons, similar to extensions in Chrome and Edge.

These are add-ons for the browser which change how it behaves or looks.
