Steps to reproduce:

I opened any PDF and changed zoom from Automatic Zoom to Full Width. Then I opened other PDF.

Actual results:

Zoom mode was changed from Automatic Zoom to Full Width for first PDF. But second PDF was again in Automatic Zoom.

Expected results:

pdf.js should remember, what zoom mode was used. So if user prefer Full Width instead of Automatic Zoom, pdf.js should open all PDFs in Full Width mode. Or there should be config option for zoom mode.

I want to contribute to fix this. Should I submit patch to Firefox or pdf.js ( itself?
Attached patch Proposed fixSplinter Review
The UI needs further polish, but I believe functional complete. A "default" key is added to pdfjs.database config. Currently only "zoom" is stored. I can try to add sidebar toggle status if desired.

It would be better to do a pull request on github.  See also
I can confirm that this is an issue.

"Automatic Zoom" is set to default to recently opened pdfs, no matter what zoom type was previously set.
