How can I make the playback buttons of YouTube and other plug-ins bigger since they are so tiny?

How can I make the playback buttons of YouTube and other plug-ins bigger since they are so tiny in Firefox? I tried some suggestions that dealt with entering "about:config" in a fresh browser, but to no avail. I also downloaded an add-on called "Theme Font & Size Changer", but that didn't work either. So, I am reaching out here as that was a suggestion that another user here offered.

Ah, yes- that is an ultra high DPI (dots per inch) display. This is a known issue in Flash Player, which Adobe is working on fixing.

In the mean time, you can get some videos to have normal-sized controls by switching Youtube to the HTML5 video player: In Firefox, go to https://www.youtube.com/html5 and click the "Request the HTML5 player" button.

That depends on why they are small in the first place. Do you have a high resolution (High DPI) display? (ie. A display under 21 inches with a resolution higher than 1080p)

I am not sure, but will you please tell me where to find that information? I have a 2015 Dell XPS 13, and I got the "13.3-inch UltraSharp™ QHD+ (3200 x 1800) infinity touch display".
