re : the FONT SIZE add-on doesn't work This implies you have something effecting things. Have you uninstalled the 'Font Size' addon that does not work? If no, uninstall addons that can effect the font size OR Start Thunderbird in Safe Mode to block it so you can test.

In Thunderbird (not Firefox browser) 'Menu icon (2 lines)' > Options > Options > 'Advanced' > 'General' tab click on 'Config Editor'

In top search type: Pixels look for this line: layout.css.devPixelsPerPx; By default it should have a Value of -1.0 Double click on that line to open a small window. Clear the content and type: 1.5 click on OK

Either I am missing something or just not understanding how to get to where I can edit the config variables. Being sight impaired the small display font is very difficult. I also can confirm that it is not just my PC. My wifes one with no add-ons has the same problem.

Accessing the config. editor is described in the previous post. Another route is Tools/Options(Mac:Preferences)/Advanced/General/Config. editor. Press Alt if the Menu Bar with Tools is hidden. Once you open Config. editor (ignore the disclaimer warning), follow the previous post to adjust the preference.

It seems that any negative value has no effect. The effect of any positive value is apparent as soon as the pref. is changed.
