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

No, you can't set this value (as far as I know), but you can increase the 
default sizes in the "Edit/Preferences.../Appearance/Fonts", modify the 
"Display resolution", this has the bad side effect that the text may want more 
space than what the page allows it, making the page look quite bad.

Too many Web designers like to set fixed-sized fonts rather than
relative-sized.  Some are far too large; many are too small.  

I installed the PrefBar extension and enabled its Font+ and Font-
buttons.  I also added a Font= button to restore the original
default, which I have set at 13 pixels.  I don't see any loss of
resolution (e.g., fuzziness) when I increase the font size.  

The Font= is defined with the onClick as
ZoomManager.prototype.getInstance().reset().

Try changing the font settings at Edit >Preferences> Appearance> Fonts 
to 18 for both Proportional and Fixed fonts and changing the minimum 
font size to 16.

I used to set the Text Zoom to 120% and now I just leave it at 100% all 
the time.  I am using a screen size of 1024 x 768 on a 19" (Viewsonic 
VX900) monitor.

I occasionally (very occasionally, like once in a thousand web page 
views) get a little weirdness and scrambling of letter but like the 
results very much otherwise.

There is enough wierdness going on with web page developers that I never 
know when to blame scrambled pages on mozilla, my settings, or a web 
page developer.  If I want to get a comparison I start IE6 (it is on my 
W2K system only for updates) and see how that looks.  I occasionally 
find that a page that has problems with mozilla but looks okay in IE6 so 
I consider that to be a web page developer problem.

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...

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...

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.

Is there a way to globally change the font/font size in a project

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...

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...
