OBIEE Firefox Settings for Admins

Quick Settings for Firefox

Without setting, It doesn’t really affect front end when viewing the dashboards. However, you’ll have some messed up screen when trying to layout the dashboard with columns and sections.



What we are going to do is to default Firefox to be at a viewable zoom level. Go to a new tab and type “about:config” like below.


If the warning “This might void your warranty” appears, click “I’ll be careful, I promise”.

Search for “layout.css.devPixelsPerPx” and by default it should be “-1.0”. Modify the value to “1.008403”.


If you modify the value to “1.0” this is zoom level 100%. If you set “1.25” then zoom level is 125% etc. So why “1.008403”? It’s simply because I tested it on my PC and it maybe different on yours.

The result will be shown right away and there’s no need to restart Firefox.
