There is a known bug i the Mozilla Editor which has a workaround. The font 
change happens when the cursor moves one space position past where you 
stopped typing.  Next time, backspace one space and you should restore the 
preferred font when you resume typing.

What happens is there are 2 HTML font tag sets, The outer start and end 
pair are the default font, while the inner set are your font selection. 
The workaround works by moving the cursor back inside the inner tag set.


this is not a Thunderbird bug, though it is most commonly seen in TB and 
SeaMonkey. Rather the bug is in a Mozilla Gecko code module.

You would not have stopped typing.   :-)

changing default font size does not affect font size on form buttons and input fields.
Hello, in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=305109 I propose that changing the default font size in Preferences should also change the font sizes for form controls. On windows it works this way. Concerning Unix, though, the form controls keep their size, even if you adjust the default font size in Firefox preferences. This makes for ugly form controls if you do not adjust your GTK settings along with your Firefox default font size. But there is a workaround: you can also make Firefox scale the form controls by applying the following changes to 'font:' li...

Change font/font size in Seamonkey2.0
Hi, up to now i run SM1.1.18 under eCS2.0RC6a and tried to see how SM2.0 is usable for me. I am disappointed concerning windows display. The font size used are to large to describe the buttons and all other stuff including contents of some windows. My old window size is mostly to small to keep the text. The used times roman font is also not my favorite. My question is: how can i modify or add which statements to about:config to adapt SM2.0 to look like SM1.1.18. Thanks and have a nice day.

Cannot change the font or font size of PicButtn ocx.
Hello, I am using PB 6.5.1 Enterprise for Win32. I inserted a PicButtn ocx control into a window and changed the font and font size using the OLE Control Properties button on the OLE Custom Control window. I saved and closed the window. When I re-opened the window the picbuttn ocx font and font size had changed back to their initial settings. I believe this is a standard OCX, and it with PB, although I am not positive. I was not able to locate an associated help file. Then name of the OCX is PicButtn.OCX, dated 9/24/96 11:54am. It was located in the Windows/System dir...

how to make Font.Size subproperty to change the text size of all the child controls
I have a control that is used to get a date (dropdown calendar) and is made up by a label and three dropdownlists. I overrided the Enabled property so when it is true/false all of the child controls are Enabled/Disabled. That was easy. But now I need to change the text size of the composite control.When I do that, only the text size of the label changes. If the size would be a property of the WebControls that would be easy. Just override it and that's it. But size is a subproperty of Font. How can I make it work ? Any help is appreciated...

Change Font Size
I am using Mozilla 1.75. Is there any way I can change the default font size in the browser "Font Zoom"? It defaults to 100% which is understandable. With my vision not being too great, I'd like it to default to say 120% or even 150%. I do have the Accessibar, but it would still be nice for the browser to default to a larger font size. Or would this be a wish-list item? Thanks, Don Don wrote: > I am using Mozilla 1.75. Is there any way I can change the default font > size in the browser "Font Zoom"?

Changing font size
I would like to reduce the size of the fonts on all of my windows and data windows from 12 to 10. I used ACCUFONTS when developing on the PC so that the port to the Mac would look more or less the same as the PC. Well this doesn't seem to be the case. At least not with PB 6.0. All of the 12 point characters are much too large to fit in the objects that get created on the Mac. I'd like to know if there is a way to change all of the font sizes without going through every window. Any Ideas? TIA John. DiPirro My suggestion would be to write a quick, littl...

Font-size support
Today I coded an htm page using the CSS {font:12pt/11pt} statement. To my astonishment, Internet Exploder (5.5) rendered it quite nicely and as intended. FireFox rendered it as if I had written {12pt/14pt - or more} i.e. with an ugly visible space in-between successive lines - which was precisely what I wanted to avoid by using the CSS statement.
