Cannot increase the font size of bookmarks and the add-on doesn't work.

Posted

The font size is much too small for my vision and the add-on does not work in FF59. Is there any way to do this? I would also like to increase the font size throughout most of the browser (tabs, menus, etc.)

You can set layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1.0 (default is -1) on the about:config page. Adjust its value in 0.1 or 0.05 steps (1.1 or 0.9) until icons or text looks right. Modifying layout.css.devPixelsPerPx affects user interface and web pages (global zoom).

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

You can look at Zoom Page WE and NoSquint Plus extension to set a default font size and page zoom on web pages.

Why can't Mozilla provide a solution in the customization area? Why do we have to mess with the OS and accept risks to do something that Internet Explorer adopted 15 years ago as a minor adjustment?
