One important detail I forgot to mention is that Firefox 22 must have
View/Zoom/Zoom Text Only checked .

Correction! Opera 12.16 does (correctly!) diminish the number of columns
without generating an horizontal scrollbar ** if "Fit to Width" has been
checked **.

I wanted to say but not Opera 12.16 and not Chrome 28.0.1500.71.

After a text size decrease, Opera 12.16 does not increase the number of
columns (when I think it should), even if I have "Fit to Width" checked.
