How to Disable the Firefox Site Specific Zoom

Firefox 3.0 has the ability to keep track of the zoom level you have chosen for a given website. To cancel this feature do the following
  1. Type about:config in the Firefox toolbar
  2. Locate browser.zoom.siteSpecific
  3. Double click on that entry to change value from "true" to "false"
