To voice the same limitation in another way:

Most if not all the online documentation opens by default in a 
single-page width window at 100% magnification, which is at best 
marginally readable on a laptop screen; and with many of the 
subsections closed by default.

Increasing the document magnification, opening all the closed 
subsections, and enlarging the window if you wish to do that, 
involves a substantial amount of delicate mousing around, all of 
which has to be re-done for each new window.

Being able to change the defaults for this would be very handy.
