Hello All,
I updated to FF 57. on Friday and while I admire the simplicity and expect to have to wait a while for some features to return through Extensions, I wish to to make my Tab and Menu Bar fonts Bolder and Bigger.
Is there a way to use FF's config. to make these changes??
Many thanks in advance.......
God Bless.....Mark Hein

You can do the Menu Bar in Windows Control Panel under Personalization>Window Color. Mine are always Bold.
Someone else will come along for the Tab Bar.

Hello,

Put the following in your userChrome.css and restart to change the tab context menu text, menu bar submenu text, menu bar text, and tab label text.
If you only want the latter two, omit the first two lines. The first number value represents the boldness (400 is normal and 700 is bold). The second is the font size. You can omit the quotes if the font name doesn't contain any spaces.
Code: Select all
#tabContextMenu *,
#main-menubar *,
.menubar-text,
.tabbrowser-tab {
  font: 600 11pt "Segoe UI" !important;
}

Hello LoveMyFoxy and Gingerbread Man,

Many thanks for your swift responses!!!
I created a chrome folder in my Profile and edited your code for the size I and boldness and we're "off and running" just like old times!!
Now my concern is for a Thunderbird update... I really don't want basic app changes there and will attempt to turn off auto updates after posting this... :D
God Bless.....Mark Hein

How would I change the size of the actual popup menus' fonts? Not the Windows Title Bar, or the browser bookmark bar, or webpage fonts, but the actual items in the popup menus?

If you mean the context menu (right-click menu),
Code: Select all
menupopup * { font-size: 16pt !important; }
