Font is way to big on settings pages

I screwed up firefox profiles and had to reset everything. Now when I go to Options (about:preferences) the font is so large that it cuts off part of the right-hand side of the pages. I can do ctrl- to decrease the font, but ff doesn't remember it, and since I go to options several times a day, it's a nuisance. Any suggestions?

If you have made changes to Advanced font-size settings like increasing the minimum/default font-size then try the Default font-size setting "16" and the Minimum font-size setting "none" in case the current setting is causing the problem.

  • Options/Preferences -> General: Fonts & Colors -> Advanced -> Minimum Font Size (none)

Make sure you allow pages to choose their own fonts.

  • Options/Preferences -> General: Fonts & Colors -> Advanced
    [X] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"

It is better not to increase the minimum font-size, but to use the builtin Firefox Zoom feature.

  • Options/Preferences -> General -> Language and Appearance -> Zoom

Hi cor-el, I didn't change the font settings, they are as you suggest (see pics).
