When clicking on 'tools' to got to 'options,' there is no 'option' to be found. Hence, I cannot go to tools to options to content to fonts and colors, and cannot change the default size of the browser. All documents I want to print from a website have the small font size.

Hello lizramadhan, on mac it is not in Tools > Options > content this is for windows

for mac you find the content from, Firefox menu and select Preferences... to access the preferences window and then Content panel

see: Firefox options, preferences and settings

Settings for fonts, languages, pop-ups, images and JavaScript

Menu differences in Windows, Linux, and Mac

It is better not to increase the minimum font size, but use an extension to set the default page zoom to prevent issues with text not being displayed properly.

You can use an extension to set a default font size and page zoom on web pages.

An excellent AD-On for Firefox to correct your problem is the Theme Font & Size Changer..like all Ff addons, it's free and has a very small footprint on the top right of your browser.
