Setting the default zoom level for Acrobat Reader browser plugin

Setting the default zoom level for Acrobat Reader browser plugin

I have a large monitor and when a PDF file is opened in my browser with the PDF plugin the letters are tiny with 100% zoom level. Every time I have to set it to 200% manually to be able to read the text.

"Probably your options for Acrobat Reader specify 100% as the default zoom, and there's no way (as far as I know) to set the Acrobat plugin to another default in Firefox.

You might want to try an alternative PDF reader plugin for Firefox.
For example : the free Foxit Reader for Windows, which is also much faster and more economical on resources than Acrobat.

As I don't use Foxit Reader, I can't guarantee anything. But this way, having two products, meaning Acrobat for the desktop and Foxit Reader for the browser, you could at least define different default zooms per each of the two products."
