Compact density without changing the address bar text size

Posted

After dragging my feet for literal years, I've finally updated Firefox past version 57. I'm gradually working out the kinks and getting things looking the way I want, but one thing I can't get to work how I'd like is the address bar.

Setting the density to "compact" fixed a good majority of size issues for buttons and my bookmarks toolbar, but it shrunk the text in the address and search bars to be much smaller than the rest of the text on bookmarks, tabs, etc.

How do I manually adjust this? Before anyone asks, yes I have a userChrome file, I just need to know what to insert to get this working how I want.

Hi Hikarigami, I'm not certain how well this will work with a userChrome.css but:

Enter about:config in the URL bar and set layout.css.devPixelsPerPx = 2, or any other value that suits you.

(Looks like 1.4 would be better)

That enlarges everything, not just the address bar. That doesn't solve my issue.

I don't think that changing the Density setting would affect the text font-size. Only padding and margin properties are normally affected.

Are you possibly using code in userChrome.css that could affect the font-size ?

No, because if that were the case, changing the density setting wouldn't update the text size.
