some web sites have fonts that are small compared to different web sites. firefox should automatically zoom in web sites that contain small fonts.
For example, most web sites have a font size of at least 11 pt, if a web site has most 8 pt text, firefox should automatically zoom in so it appears as 11pt.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. visit web site with small fonts

Actual Results:  
small font text on web site

Expected Results:  
web site automatically zoomed in so font size appears to be user set font size (something like 12pt)
Dupe of Bug 31961 I guess.
Version: unspecified → 4.0 Branch
almost. I don't think there should be any zooming out, so if most of the font size are 22, there would be no zooming out. but if there is 7 pt text, there should be zooming in. It appears that bug has been there quite a  while without any progress.
Version: 4.0 Branch → unspecified
please don't change the version.
