Is there a way to make all screen text bold (but not necessarily) larger?

Posted

My sweetheart can't see font well except for that which is very bold. Chasnging the SIZE of font is too cumbersome for him because it enlarges the entire page and means he has to scroll everywhere to see everything he wants to see. We can't seem to locate an option to just make all of the font on screen go bold, rather than larger...

Only on web pages or also in the user interface?

A possibility is to use code in userChrome.css below the @namespace line.

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Editing_configuration#How_to_edit_configuration_files

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* only needed once */

body, body * {font-weight: bold !important;}


You can also look at Stylish. Stylish: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/2108
