See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Zoom_text_of_web_pages

To change the text size of web pages, do any of the following

  • Firefox 3 and above: View -> Zoom -> Zoom In / Zoom Out / Reset / Zoom Text Only
    • Ctrl+0 (hold the control key and press zero) resets zoom to normal size (Zoom RESET).
    • Ctrl++ (hold the control key and press the plus key) makes the text larger (Zoom IN).
    • Ctrl+- (hold the control key and press the minus key) makes the text smaller. (Zoom OUT)
    • Ctrl+scroll with mouse wheel

These changes will only change text sizes temporarily. "Tools -> Options -> Content -> Fonts & Colors gives you options that will stick.


Your updating of Firefox is behind even on Firefox 3
