Since applying Firefox and Windows updates the font has changed. It seems smaller and not at all bold. How can I modify the appearance and size of web displays?

How do I use Zoom?

The Firefox Page Zoom feature does a domain by domain level of saving the users preferred zoom level settings, there is no default Page Zoom level setting in Firefox.

Try the Default FullZoom Level 4.5 extension:

Or the NoSquint 2.1.2 extension:

Check and tell if its working.

If the problem is system wide you will need to look at your Windows XP display settings.

If the problem is only with Firefox;

  • if it is with the content of the page, is it just that the text is too small, if so use the zoom controlls, eg press keyboard keys Ctrl + + (press and hold the Control key, then also press the plus key ) Ctrl + - reduces size Ctrl + 0 (zero the number) resets to 100%
  • There are also software extensions that can be used to improve things, and a firefox preference that also changes the size of the firefox interface items such as the menu items.
