  1. Open (note: Mozilla auth required. This will not reproduce with the public instance of etherpad)
  2. Zoom the page by using Ctrl+mouse wheel to, say, 150%.
  3. Switch to another tab
  4. Switch back to the etherpad tab

Expected results:
Page zoom is preserved

Actual results:
Page zoom is reset to 100%.

I asked others on slack to reproduce this but they couldn't so it's possibly at least Windows specific.

I could not reproduce with beta but I could reproduce with a fresh profile in Nightly so I don't believe it is profile / extension related.

I can reproduce with Firefox Developer Edition (70.0b1), also on Windows.

Is this a regression?
