To the experts:

I recently put a CD of Ubuntu into the CD-ROM to test it, but when I clicked on Firefox to activate the Internet the webpages did not fit the page.  How do I adjust the webpages to fit the screen in Ubuntu because I cannot do it in Windows?

Thank you.

Have you tried going to Ubuntu's Control panel yet for the display settings?  Haven't booted up in Ubuntu recently but it's probably under Systems someplace

of course if you're using the live cd I believe you set your resolution while it's booting.

Unless of course, you simply mean in Firefox itself. In Firefox, go to View->Text Size, decrease.
