Manual screen size reduction (85%) does not hold and returns to 100% with routine navigation within a website (fuBar, ex.)
Have you discussed this in our support forums yet?
Go to about:config
and filter for
Is it set to True?
No I have not discussed this in the Forums yet. Also, I experienced this identical problem at the time of a previous upgrade introduction. At that time I simply used another browser and apparently it was resolved in the meantime. I just checked the browser.zoom.siteSpecific setting as recommended and it is set to 'True'. Problem is still present and makes the operation of the new Seamonkey configuration unusable, however the previous version works fine. I would rather use the new, however.
Further testing now indicates the problem has been eliminated (at present) and reduction in screen size is holding in varying operations within the site. Thank you.
Problem still exists when reduction is set at a non-preset position like 85% in this case. 75 and 90% preset choices hold OK.
Re-opening based on comment 4
Looks like /toolkit.zoomManager.zoomValues/ defaults to:
FF shows no zoom "value", only offers Zoom In or Zoom Out.
FF looks to be able to Zoom in/out to all of those values.
FF has no "Other (xxx%)" user-set zoom level (as SeaMonkey does).
SeaMonkey looks to use only a subset (or different, in the case of .75, or missing, 1.1 & others) of that data (though the default value is the same):
Only for that particular set (though not necessarily "default") of values, is the value of /browser.content.full-zoom/ updated & retained.
Any other user selected value reverts back to the last set value (from browser.content.full-zoom) on that list.

Data Manager showing FF values retained.
(Actual shot only /shows/ that way as it updates, but not refreshes. In actuality there is only one value there.)

Related with bug 621823?
John, now that bug 621823 is fixed, do you still encounter the issue?
I can test this (assuming bug 621823 has landed on 2.9 -- I think it has)
browser.zoom.siteSpecific = true
browser.zoom.full = false
1. Setting zoom to 115% (a non-default value) zooms to that normally
2. The moment I load a new page (click a link) or change tab or navigate back/forth within the same domain, it resets the zoom to 100%
So yes, still reproducible.
If I zoom with the mouse wheel (with its 10% increments), the zoom is remembered. Only the View -> Text Zoom -> Other option is having trouble.
And if I set Other to 115%, and mouse wheel up to 125% and then back down, it remembers it properly. This definitely sounds like something is missing a hook.

setZoomOther() was missing a call to _applySettingToPref()
I moved it to FullZoom.setZoomOther() where the other four functions were.
Please note that this patch is completely untested. Would appreciate if someone could test it.

Setting appropriate review flags, otherwise this patch will never make it into the codebase.
p.s. hhaamu thanks for the patch!
(I do hope someone has tested this patch before it is checked in. I'm unable to test it currently.)
