I desire to increase text size in toolbars. Have to use magnifying glass to read them.

Posted

Geesh, I can increase my page size by using zoom in but I cannot find anything to help me increase the text size in toolbars and the smaller print on pages.

Hello BJPtap1,

Two things come to mind - first, would you please take a look at this article, and scroll down to the section :

How to only change the size of text

If that doesn't give you the result you are looking for, would you give this a try :

Type in the address bar about:config and press Enter (promise to be careful, if asked)

Type in the search bar pix and look for the preference layout.css.devPixelsPerPx

Change the value (to start with) to 1.25 or 1.5 If the text is still too small for you, you can go higher.

After you have changed the value, close and restart Firefox in order for the change to take effect.

Does that work for you  ?

Note that layout.css.devPixelsPerPx will affect the full Firefox window (user interface and web pages), so you may need an extension to adjust the zoom for websites.

Another option is to code in userChrome.css to only adjust the text size in the Navigation Toolbar area.

#navigator-toolbox * { font-size:12pt !important; }
