Do you mean the text in the browser Window or the text size if you print a file?

If you need to adjust the font size on websites then look at:

I want to know how to enlarge the text size when I print a file. Does anyone know how to do this? I have to go to Explorer when I want to print something from the web.

Did you check the print scale?
File > Page Setup > "Format & Options": Scale

I have the exact same problem with the latest Firefox update. It appears the only time this font issue appears is with the www.pogo.com website. Its never happened until I recently concluded my update to my Firefox. I've tried everything I can think of to include, clicking properties from my desktop, you name and nothing changes it on that particular site.

I've gone into my control panel, checked java, still same situation. I've even double checked as well to see if there is a technical issue on Pogo's end but there isn't.

Is there anything anyone can think of that will fix this? I've even performed a "restore session" and same issue. Help please! It would be greatly appreciated. My brain is fried! I can't think of anything else to try that could possible work!

Thanks a million!

Have a good one!

Printing from Firefox browser is too small - can't find way to change this. Occurs when printing from websites and email -- need magnifying glass to see print. Tried printing same things from Explorer and print size was normal. Assuming problem started when Firefox automatically updated software at recent login. Very frustrating -- may lose me as a Firefox user.

Did you check the print scale settings in File > Page Setup > "Format & Options": Scale or in File > Print Preview?

The small print in the browser". I have fixed the problem. I went into tools, then Add on's then Themes and set it to the DEFAULT THEME. Then the font was BIG in the Browser Section.

If you change the font size in Firefox preferences it not only adjusts the size of the print when viewing the web pages, but also increases the type size when printing a web page. Go to Firefox on your menu bar, then click preferences; under the "content" tab just choose a larger number from the "size" drop down list (there are additional font size options if you click on the "advanced" button).

Hope this helps.

Uncheck the "scale to fit page size" option and the problem is solved.

THIS ISSUE IS RESOLVED FOR ME.

When I opened this pop-up to view the settings (File > Page Setup > "Format & Options": Scale ), the Scale value was 40%. Changing it to 100% corrected the issue I observed.

To my knowledge, I have not been inside this pop-up window before to set the Scale option. Could this value be affected by other actions within Firefox? I noticed this while using v12 which was installed 24Apr2012.I know it worked correctly since that installation, so why did the Scale value change?

UPDATE: I just realized that the Scale option in print preview sets the Scale value in the settings. NOTE TO ALL: This is a sticky setting, not just a setting for a specific output request.
