I would like to make all the font size bigger in FireFox other than those in the web pages (cause this is already taken care of with the Zoom feature and Defaults Full Zoom Level extension)....so, basically I want to have bigger FireFox borders, bigger fonts in the Navigation Toolbar, Bookmarks Toolbar, SIdebar and all the drop down menu/options...etc.

Using a 24" LCD screen at native 1920X1200 makes everything so tiny, and yes I can mess with Windows DPI settings but that option is no good as it actually messed up some of the displays in XP.

Thanks in advance.

Place the following in userChrome.css

for menus
Code: Select all
menubar > menu,menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem,
* {
  font-size: 11pt !important;
  font-family: Copperplate Gothic Bold !important;
font-weight: bold !important;
}


for sidebar
Code: Select all
#sidebar-box *,
#bookmarksPanel *, #bookmarks-view *,
#history-panel *, #historyTree {
font-size: 12pt !important;
font-family: Copperplate Gothic Bold !important;
font-weight: bold !important;

}

adjust font, size to taste

Ops alterna, mine doesn't work...how come?

My userChrome.css

/*
* Edit this file and copy it as userChrome.css into your
* profile-directory/chrome/
*/

/*
* This file can be used to customize the look of Mozilla's user interface
* You should consider using !important on rules which you want to
* override default settings.
*/

/*
* Do not remove the @namespace line -- it's required for correct functioning
*/
@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */


/*
* Some possible accessibility enhancements:
*/
/*
* Make all the default font sizes 20 pt:
*
* * {
* font-size: 20pt !important
* }
*/
/*
* Make menu items in particular 15 pt instead of the default size:
*
* menupopup > * {
* font-size: 15pt !important
* }
*/
/*
* Give the Location (URL) Bar a fixed-width font
*
* #urlbar {
* font-family: monospace !important;
* }
*/

/*
* Eliminate the throbber and its annoying movement:
*
* #throbber-box {
* display: none !important;
* }
*/

/*
* For more examples see http://www.mozilla.org/unix/customizing.html
*/


#star-button { display: none !important;}

#feed-button {
display: none !important;
}

#go-button-stack, .search-go-button-stack {
display: none !important;
}


menu[label="History"], menu[label="Edit"] {
display: none !important;
}*/


menubar > menu,menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem,
* {
font-size: 15pt !important;
font-family: Copperplate Gothic Bold !important;
font-weight: bold !important;
}

#sidebar-box *,
#bookmarksPanel *, #bookmarks-view *,
#history-panel *, #historyTree {
font-size: 12pt !important;
font-family: Copperplate Gothic Bold !important;
font-weight: bold !important;

}

You have an obsolete comment closing code (*/):
Code: Select all
menu[label="History"], menu[label="Edit"] {
display: none !important;
}*/
Those items have IDs:
Code: Select all
#history-menu, #edit-menu {display:none!important}


For the Library (Bookmarks and History Manager) you can use:
Code: Select all
/* Places Library */
#places * {font-size:12pt!important}


For the about:config page you can put this code in userContent.css:
Code: Select all
@-moz-document url-prefix(about:config) {*{font-size:12pt!important}}
