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.
Use an extension to adjust the text size in the user interface and the page zoom in the browser window.
You can look at this extension to adjust the font size for the user interface.

You can look at the Default FullZoom Level or NoScript extension if web pages need to be adjusted after changing layout.css.devPixelsPerPx.

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
