Issues with max font size in reader mode...

hiya,

I'm visually impaired and make heavy use of reader mode. For the last week or so the max font size that I'm able to get with crt + tops out at a size much smaller than what i'm use to: previously I could fill the page--and with nice text reflow. Presently, the max font size is much small than this. Please advise.

cheers, a

Hi ajprince, Have you tried the Zoom Control as an alternative? That control can increase to 300%. I put the Zoom Control right next to my address bar from the Customize options.


Tip: When you click the percent indication in the center, it quickly restores to 100%.

There are also extensions available which might provide a better experience, like: Tranquility Reader - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tranquility-1/?src=featured

Thanks for your prompt response. Nah, In reader mode, the zoom maxes out at 100%, which corresponds to max size that I can now get with crt+.

Right, the Zoom Control suggestion would be an alternative to Reader Mode. It doesn't work very well in conjunction.

Have you looked at any of the Extensions?

hiya,

Thanks for that. At some point recently I refreshed firefox and noticed that I had the facility back: i assumed that it was some sort of anomaly and was resigned to enjoying it while it lasted. in the end i'd decided that it was no big deal anyway: i'm a big user of pocket so with that it was an easy work around. But this is good to hear.

cheers, a
