I don't see the solution to my questions. I have trouble READING and thus, I cannot see all the tiny answers!!! Is there not some SIMPLE solution to make all font BOLD in incoming email? I cannot see to search and sift through so many useess answers. I need exact, step by step, instructions. I don't know why this should be so difficult since so many people have visual handicaps. PLEASE HELP.

Do you mean the font of the text in message bodies? Be specific, as there are ways to set the font of several elements, including the message list, folder pane, menus etc. For message bodies, there is a straightforward method based on userContent.css, but some users might not call it 'simple'.

This entire forum is not user friend,y. I thought i made the question clear, sorry. I n3ed all fonts to show up as BOLD text. I cannot seem too find any fonts available in the TB program There is no preview that I see; I cannot figure out how to download or load bold font. I have trouble SEEING the text in incoming emails. Those incoming emails that had BOLD tgext within the message, I can easily read the bolded text. I need to make ALL text in the incoming messages to BE BOLD. I cannot see well. It seems odd to me that Mizilla has not done anything to add ACCESSIBILITY options, add-ons, or extensions to its program. And there is n o PREVIEW of the text options avialable in the settings. Nothing is intuitive. That is all. If this is available to add in somewhere, the cinfig file or whatever, if you can post EXACTLY THE STEPS to do this, I would be so happy.

The text in received and composed messages can be made bold with the following css:

/* message body font received & composed */
body:not(#msgFeedSummaryBody) {
  font-size: 20pt !important;
  font-family: Arial !important;
  font-weight: bold !important;
}


Help/Troubleshooting Info, Profile Folder, Open Directory (Win: Folder), close TB, create a new folder named chrome, create a new document in chrome with a text editor, name it userContent.css, Save as type: All files *.*, copy in the above code, change the font-size or font-family as desired. Double-click toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true in Settings/General/Config. editor, restart TB.
