I am trying to enlarge the Thunderbird font for the message listing in my inbox, etc., under Windows 10. This is a new computer. Part of my userChrome.css file must be executing, because the background is yellow. But the font and size part has no effect. Here is my file. Thank you very much! Brenda2018

Grasping at straws here; is the double colon after treechildren correct?

Hint: on this forum, asterisks and hashes are used for lists. Insert a leading space to defeat this and use fixed-width font.
