Can't change font or size. Does not stick.

Posted

Had to reinstall and now can't make fonts larger in the browser. I had thrown away my preferences but think I got them back Also, bonus question, Facebook chat is not active in PurePlay poker any longer. I can see them, I log in to FB directly and through the PP window and I can't participate.

Additional System Details

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

This started when...

Normally Firefox's zoom feature works on a site-by-site basis. When you say it does not stick, does it not stick for the same site in the same session, or between sessions? How do I use Zoom? | How to | Firefox Help

If the problem is having to zoom each site, you can "zoom" all sites using this add-on: NoSquint. After setting your Global zoom level, you can still fine-tune the zoom on individual sites.

After installing NoSquint, click the % on the Add-on Bar to call up site preferences, then click the Global Settings button, then the Zooming tab.

If you don't have the Add-on Bar displayed, you can right-click the new tab button ("+") or a blank area of the tab bar to the right of it and choose Add-on Bar from the shortcut menu.

You can experiment with sizes larger than 125%, but I wouldn't go much higher than 150% unless you have a large high-resolution monitor.

If there are particular sites that still present a problem, feel free to post their URLs.

Question owner

This is a shot of my preferences. Seems to have no effect on the font shown while browsing. Thank you for trying and if you have any other ideas pass em on.

If you click the Advanced button, there is a checkbox to honor or override the site's fonts. If you clear that box, then your fonts will be used. The disadvantage is that the results might not be very attractive. Is that what you were looking for?
