When using Netvibes to read articles from an RSS feed, FF3 decides to zoom-in whenever I click on a new link and makes everything too large to read.  I suspect that somehow FF3 thinks that the frame in which the story is being displayed is the same size as the whole FF3 window, but it's not.  I think this might occur with any framed layout that looks like what Netvibes uses.  I made some screencaps that explain a bit better.


1) Load my Consumerist feed on Netvibes.  Hit Ctrl-0 to Zero my zooming.  

2) Click on another story.  Watch helpless as FF3 zooms-in too much!

FF3 shouldn't be zooming at all, but again I suspect that it sees the drawable size as window size and not frame size, but that's just my guess.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See details.
Actual Results:  
FF3 zooms in my frames way too far.

Expected Results:  
FF3 should zoom to match the frame size and in this case, I didn't expect any zooming to occur.
