Hello, I am a new user so please forgive some of my basic questions as I tried finding answers for these questions and could find none, so I appreciate any help, thanks!

(#1) I just started using Firefox on iPad Pro, but for many websites the font size is too small. Normally on my PC I can find quickly on a browser how to increase/decrease font size, but tI cannot find this option in the iOS settings. I even tried using keyboard and mouse shortcuts but still nothing. I need to have increased font size for my poor eyes, so can someone help me?

(#2) Also, could there be something wrong with this iOS Firefox browser? I ask because when I did research to find out how to increase the font size, I saw some examples that showed options/settings that I do not see anywhere on the iOS browser. Maybe some of those examples were for the PC Firefox browser which may have more options/settings? But increase font size would seem to be a basic setting that is nowhere on the iOS version. I hope there is a simple answer to all this, thank you for helping me. :-)

you can increase font size under general -> accessibility settings in iOS, I'm not 100% sure it'll actually apply to Firefox iOS, but it should.

Hi Eve, Thanks for your suggestion. Increasing the font size in the iOS “Accessibility” settings is good for increasing fonts for words/titles of the settings features in iOS and for some of the Apple apps. But unfortunately it doesn’t change settings to non-Apple apps, which makes sense because those apps should have their own font size settings and many apps do. Firefox has it’s own font size setting on the PC browser, but apparently not for the iOS browser. I wonder if Firefox for Android also doesn’t have a font size setting?

The only way I have found that helps my view is to “pinch” the iPad screen and zoom in, but this causes other problems like not being able to see much of the webpage because I am zoomed in. And to keep zooming in and out every time I want to write is a bit frustrating. I would like to have Firefox be my primary browser, but with no way to adjust the font size, this browser won’t work for me. So if you or anyone has any knowledge or is a good researcher and can find out how to increase/decrease the font size, I would be very appreciative!
