firefox web pages are all to small to read the font size compared to internet explorer. The whole web pages are displayed too small in size you need a magnifier to read anything on the screen. zoom in and out causes distortions of the web page and when you first start firefox it reverts to the small size again. I can hardly read anything. Using ver 3.6.13 with windows 7 on a desktop machine.

If you need to increase or decrease the size of fonts and other elements in the user interface and web pages then increase the String pref layout.css.devPixelsPerPx from 1.0 to 2.0 in 0.1 steps to see what works best.

In current Firefox versions this pref is a String value parsed to a float and allows to fine tune the dimensions of all elements (user interface and web pages) more precisely.
