Why (you may ask) would anyone need such large buttons? Lots of reasons.

  • They may have a visual impairment
  • They may not have perfect eyesight
  • They may have a cognitive disability
  • Perhaps they use high resolution monitor settings, or a wide screen
  • Because 20x20 pixel icons (default Firefox size) are just too small

Usage, Potential Conflicts

The default size of Big Buttons is 64x64 pixels. Selecting "Use Small Icons" in the Customize Toolbar window will display them at 48x48 pixels.

Firefox navigation toolbar buttons

Note: These were intended to be used in their default location (Navigation Toolbar). They can be placed on any toolbar but doing so will increase the height of the toolbar significantly so if you were to place any of the icons in the Tab Bar for example, the height of the tabs would increase.

Big Buttons is a Firefox extension and not a Firefox theme so they will work with all Personas, but it is recommended that you use them with the default Firefox theme.
