I have a Surface Pro 3. I use it regularly for school and leisure, i love it. but after switching to Firefox over RAM issues with chrome. since switching to Firefox i have been having issue with the scaling of pages when full screen in portrait mode. i use the one page spread for this (that not being a settable default is a different issue.), when i do this and go full screen i get the page but it is not scaled to the full size of the screen.

this is an issue

this is on chrome...


something i noticed is that with a support ticket i submitted firefox was reporting that available resolution was 1056x1543. my surface (and all pro3's) the screen resolution is 2560x1440. this is wrong. i don't know if this is an issue with scaleing or what but it is annoying. i don't want to use chrome because i like my tabs (i have something like 40-50 tabs stored on my desktop, and i use the sync services to pull them down to my surface.) and Firefox does not load all of them at once. plus it uses way less ram than chrome.

please someone help me with this, i don't know what exactly is going on and i need help tracking down the cause and creating a workaround.

You have a digit wrong there. The screen resolution is 2160 x 1440. (2560 x 1440 is a 16:9 resolution, while the Surface Pro 3's screen is 3:2).

It sounds like this is more of an issue with Firefox not handling a hiDPI screen properly.

... i'm dyslexic so 1 or a 5... minor detail. i knew something was off thanks for pointing that out.

but that still does not help the issue. also firefox not handling high resolution monitors right sounds a bit like scaling issues to me.

does anyone know of a way to scale flash at all? that seems like the best solution or should i just go straight to Mozilla?
