Since using windows 8.1, the menu bars and navigation bars as well a the bookmark list ar in very small letters with poor contrast.

Posted

File, edit View etc are in very small light letters as is the navigation bar and when I look through my bookmarks, they too are in small light letters. I need to enlarge them in order to see them. Incidentally the same thing happens on Microsoft Explorer since I downloaded 8.1. It was not so in Windows 8.

You can set the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx pref on the about:config page to 1.0 or on Windows 8 to 1.25 and if necessary adjust layout.css.devPixelsPerPx starting from 1.0 in 0.1 or 0.05 steps (1.1 or 0.9) to make icons show correctly.

Thanks so much for the help. I did not mean to check no. As suggested I used the Theme, Font and Size Changer and Voila, I had a larger and bolder font. Thanks again JR
