Like Chromium and Safari.

The View > Zoom > Reset menu item should be renamed "Actual Size" in order to be more consistent with those browsers.

I kept this bug broad, but this can be refiled to Cocoa instead if it makes more sense for macOS, but I don't see a real reason why it shouldn't also apply to Windows and Linux.

I'd want someone from UX to weigh in before doing anything here. Eric, are you the right person?

Spoke with Betsy since this is a string change. We're both good with the change to "Actual Size"

Note that when bug 1588895 lands, this would say "Actual Size" when what it does is reset to global zoom, so if your global zoom preference is 150%, it'd set it to that - not 100%. That seems to be what other browsers do too, but it does feel odd to call it "Actual Size"...

Mentor: gijskruitbosch+bugs

Anyway, to fix this, we'd need to:

  1. change the identifier of the string at - probably menu-view-full-zoom-actual-size would be a good choice
  2. change the label and access key properties to have correct values
  3. use menu-view-full-zoom-actual-size at .

Could I take this bug, please?
