Fonts too small in menu bars, drop downs, tabs, etc.

more options

Mozilla must be run by 20 somethings who don't realize many computer users have been using them for longer than they've been alive. As a result we are needing to be able to change the WAY TOO SMALL text in the menu bar, drop downs, tabs etc. Now that Font Size and Color Changer no longer works, is there a way to increase those fonts? If not, why don't they add that feature to the next version?

Is there a way to increase those fonts or do I need to go back to Safari?

You could try this:

Global Zoom Factor

The following setting governs both the "content" area and the "chrome" area (menus, toolbars, and tabs). If the content is too large after finding a comfortable size for the toolbar area, you can use a reduced default zoom level on the Preferences/Settings page.

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the filter box, type or paste devp and pause while the list is filtered

(3) The layout.css.devPixelsPerPx preference has a default value of -1.0 which indicates following the system-level scaling

Retina Display

Double-click the preference and change its value to 3 -- no minus sign -- which is the equivalent of 150% scaling. You can adjust as needed. If something goes terribly wrong, there is a reset button at the right end of the row.

Standard Display

Double-click the preference and change its value to 1.5 -- no minus sign -- which is the equivalent of 150% scaling. You can adjust as needed. If something goes terribly wrong, there is a reset button at the right end of the row.

What do you think so far?
