Isn't any text affected in the user interface by modifying layout.css.devPixelsPerPx ?

Code in userChrome.css can only affect the user interface, for web pages you need userContent.css.

Can you attach a screenshot ?


You can try this code:

*|*:root * { /*your font rules*/
   font-family:sans-serif !important;
   font-weight:500 !important;
   font-size:16px !important;
   text-shadow:none; !important;
}

hi dr......

   Press the Alt key to temporarily
bring up the traditional Firefox menus. 

On the menu at the top, click View, then go to Zoom.

   Select Zoom Text Only. This makes the
controls only change the size of text; not images.

I can read the web pages fine,and I know how to adjust that. My problem is reading the firefox theme font in the tool bar menu and the font in drop down menu. A example is the font in the bookmark drop down box,it is very very tiny print . I have spent hours online reading looking for a fix for it, There does not seem to be one. The firefox developers have to fix it.

In your address bar type about:config & press enter

Once on the page search for layout.css.devPixelsPerPx & double click

Change string value to 1.25 or 1.5 or 1.75 whichever suits best ( Don't go above 4.0 ) & click ok.

Hope it helps.

thanks for the effort. I have tried your suggestion. on "about:config" fix it makes the interface boxes larger the size of the print is unchanged. the theme and font changer by boris Derin has not been updated in over 2 years it stopped working in early 2018. It should be removed form the add on, many people have tried with no success. thanks again. Like I said there is no fix for this, only firefox can fix it and they have no interest in doing so for almost 2 years now. not good thanks again row

You are using the Firefox version from the Ubuntu repositories.

Does this version use the Linus OX menu bar at the top of the screen or do you get a 'normal' Firefox window?

Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server if you currently use a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution.

@rowlandsushi

This is a snippet from my userCrome.css, used in FF 72.0.1. Note the additional code wrapper enclosing the codes, and the @namespace declaration is also in the same enclosure.

Note: This changes the font-size of the FF skin (theme) menus, bookmark descriptions etc., and you can adjust the font size to your preference. Unfortunately, the Bookmarks Library remains displayed with an estimated 7-8 point size. I am in the process of looking to enlarge that font size as well.

/* new code wrapper required for FF 7xxx */ @-moz-document url(chrome://browser/content/browser.xul), url(chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml) {

@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul")

  • {
   font-family:sans-serif !important;
   font-weight:500 !important;
   font-size:16px !important;
   text-shadow:none; !important;

}

} /* end of wrapper */
