From the 'Fonts for:' drop-down menu select 'Other Writing Systems'. Does it have the same font settings as for Latin?

If not, use the same ones as for Latin.

Does holding the ctrl key and pressing the plus + key make it larger? Minus (-) and Zero (0) to reduce and Reset respectively.

Not permanent, but useful if it is just a couple of regular correspondents that insist you should read 10 point text.

A font size of 17 and 14 respectively should be sufficient. Do you still have a problem?

I had the upgrade installed automatically, ( turned off now ) the upgrade deleted all my email accounts all Locale folders and all my settings.The only thing that remained was my address book so I had to re-enter everything. It took me so long to get Thunderbird as I liked it. Since the upgrade 2 days ago, I have been trying get this new V78 as the old ver. I did try to go back but it said I could not as it was not compatible with Win 10, which cannot be correct as it was working ok before, I have my suspicions that there is a file installed with V78 that will not let you go back. I now have my Thunderbird install and all my email addresses set up with all my email in each separate email address. But lost all this below. 1: Can't resize my text ( stuck with 10 font) I did alter the text size by a new folder ( chrome.css ) this don't work anymore 2: Lost my inbox where all my 7 email addresses went into ( yes i have tried Folders > unified ) don't work. 3: Lost my Local folders where i kept all customer emails in separate folders. (about 2000 of them ) Ok it's only 3 things but has caused me many lost hours and all I have is the basic Thunderbird which works but not as i want. Has anyone else lost everything, same as me?
