MS Outlook does not render correctly in Firefox 19.0 on iMac OSX 10.7.5. When viewing eMail, the top banner buttons "Delete", Move" etc are hidden.

I recently upgraded from Hotmail to Outlook (MicroSoft).

Outlook does not render correctly in Firefox 19.0 on iMac 2007 running OSX 10.7.5.

Outlook renders properly in Safari, Opera and Chrome.

If you have increased the minimum font size then try the default setting "none" in case the current setting is causing problems.

  • Firefox > Preferences > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced > Minimum Font Size (none)

Make sure that you allow websites to choose their fonts.

  • Firefox > Preferences > Content : Fonts & Colors > Advanced > [X] "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"

Hi Madperson,

Changed Minimum font size to "None" and that fixed issue immediately. Thanks for the help. Now to get MS to increase font size so us oldies can read it.

you can also try to adjust the zoom size with ctrl & +/- while you're on the page to a level where all elements are still visible - firefox will store these settings for each page.

Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages

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

Tried setting "no minimum" in preferences but now many pages from various sites render pages with small font size that is difficult to read.

I had set minimum to 12 which was the smallest that I desire.

Tried " No Squint" plugin but had to increase Full Zoom Level to 145% which is too big as it flooded the screen.

How is it that the "Outlook" pages render satisfactorily in other web browsers with out all this messing around?

Regards,

Ian

cor-el Please see attached jpg files showing the difference between how Safari renders the page vs Firefox. Note the contents in the orange menu bar.
