Make bookmarks font bigger

I desperately need to make the bookmarks text font bigger (eyesight). I've tried two different css tweaks in userChrome.css, which resulted in no change.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

/*1st try */ personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text { font-size:12pt !important; font-weight:bold; }

/2nd try */ .toolbarbutton-text { font-size: 14px !important; }

To expand this, I'd like to increase the tabs' text font too.

Firefox 38. Is userChrome.css still used? If so, what is wrong with above?

You need to create a chrome directory and place the userChrome.css in that folder.

C:\Users\[name]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\2h0sftlb.default\chrome\userChrome.css

Note that personal-bookmarks is an ID and thus needs "#" as prefix.

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text { font-size:12pt !important; font-weight:bold; }

Note that this code only works for the Bookmarks Toolbar. If you need to increase the font in other places as well then consider to use the Theme Font & Size Changer extension.

As you see, I am no css person. Have gained TINY knowledge about it over the last couple of years--and I do mean 'tiny.' I thought the # was a "whole line comment" mark and removed it.

With #, it sill doesn't work. Below is what I have. It is in C:\Users\[name]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\2h0sftlb.default\userChrome.css

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); 

#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text { font-size:12pt !important; font-weight:bold; 
}

Oooo system turned the # int an indented "1" I don't see a control to enter code????

Do you see what I am doing wrong?

That was it! Thanks! What would be the element spec to manipulate the text in tab labels?

You can use this code for the tab label text:

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-text { font-size:12pt!important; font-weight:bold; }
