Anytime I open gmail, it starts out looking fine, but within seconds, the entire window shrinks tremendously, and the text becomes unreadable. The window looks like it has become a width of like 5000% and the browser is trying to fit all that inside the window.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open firefox
2. go to
Actual Results:  
Here is a screenshot for you to take a look yourself.

Expected Results:  
it should maintain it's width.
To be honest, I have been using Chrome since this issue because Firefox is simply unmanigable with it shrunk like that. Let me try those and get back to you.

I don't know how, maybe just a fix with the recent updates, but this issue has been resolved. I hope it wasn't a simple cntrl+mousewheel zoom fix, haha. Either way, it has been resolved.
