About Theme Font & Size Changer

There are many Firefox add-ons that provides you with the means to enlarge and reduce text on web pages. Theme Font & Size Changer allows you to change the global font (using your sytem's fonts) and font size for Firefox itself meaning for all windows, menus, toolbars, etc.
It was created to be an accessibility aid for persons with visual impairments and for those without a perfect visual acuity, but it's also useful for Firefox users with high monitor resolution settings and wide screens.
Theme Font & Size Changer is also available for Thunderbird and SeaMonkey.

While Theme Font & Size Changer was initially designed to be used with Firefox's default theme, it does work with other Firefox themes but you may come across some compatibility issues. For example, some elements within Firefox may retain the (non-default) font size setting that the theme developer chose for their theme.
There are no known compatibility issues with Personas.

Theme Font & Size Changer access options

Simply select a font size value and a font and it will be applied instantly and globally. A "Normal" (default) value is also provided for both the font and font size so that you can quickly reset your settings back to default ones.
Tip: You can cycle through fonts to see how each one would look like when applied by hitting the up or down arrows on your keyboard when the font field is highlighted. Same applies to font sizes. Some Dingbats, Wingdings, etc, may temporarily freeze up Firefox while they are being loaded. It's best just to skip past them quickly.
