Fonts ok generally except in global search tab where text and gfx tiny. Anyway to scale up?

Posted

I have the Theme Font & Size Changer addon installed but it does not change anything on the global search tab where everything is crammed into about 1/4 of the page width. Fonts elsewhere ok.

Instead of using TF&SC (currently for TB 60 and lower), try this: Edit/Preferences/Advanced/General/Config. editor, right-click the preference layout.css.devPixelsPerPx, Modify, and enter a value of 1.20 or 1.25. That will zoom everything, including the global search tab text.

Thank you! That at least makes the search results readable. Shouldn't the results take up more of the available width by default though?

I don't know why it doesn't use the full width, and haven't yet found a way to change it. Note that the 'Open email as list' button under the histogram shows the results in a Threads Pane view.

Thanks for helping and i did try to find that preference and edit it but that preference was not on the list....so i am still left with tiny fonts on the menus and folders and no way to install an updated font add on that will help. I dont want to go back to the old version of ThunderBird. Thanks

The preference is there even in a new profile created with TB 68. Type pixels in the search box in Config. editor and you will see the correct pref.

See the pictures here.
