I use a 24" widescreen monitor at 1920x1200 res. Unfortunately this makes all my icons in the bookmark toolbar very small.

I have the regular navigation buttons set at normal size (no check in 'use small icons') and those are larger then then bookmark icons.

Anyway to increase the Bookmark Toolbar Icons' Size??

The large toolbar icons are 24px and large themes can increase that value, but favicons on the bookmarks toolbar keep their original size (usually 16x16).
You can try this code in userChrome.css to increase the icons:
Firefox 2:
#bookmarks-ptf .toolbarbutton-icon {height: 24px !important; width: 24px !important}
Firefox 3:
#personal-bookmarks .toolbarbutton-icon {height: 24px !important; width: 24px !important}

Hi,

unfortunately I cannot make much sense out of the above post. I added the line

#personal-bookmarks .toolbarbutton-icon {height: 24px !important; width: 24px !important}

to the end of my my firefox 3 userChrome.css but it didn't make any difference. What I need to do is to increase the size of the toolbar icons and the font used in the firefox menus.

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Make sure that you add the lines to userChrome.css in the chrome directory within the Firefox profile folder.

See Finding the profile folder on Windows
LINUX : ~/.mozilla/firefox/<Profile_name>/chrome/

You are answering to an old thread from 2008

You can try to increase the String pref layout.css.devPixelsPerPx from 1.0 to 2.0 in 0.1 steps to see what works best.
In Firefox 3.6 and later this pref is a String value parsed to a float and allows to fine tune the dimensions of all elements more precisely.

To open the about:config page, type about:config in the location (address) bar and press the Enter key, just like you type the url of a website to open a website.
If you see a warning then you can confirm that you want to access that page.

You need a positive value like 1.5, values below zero do not have effect.

It might be because of a grammatical error, it should say:

#personal-bookmarks .toolbarbutton-icon {height: 24px !important; width: 24px !important;}


Proper punctuation. ;)
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

You can leave out a semi-colon ';' before the closing '}' , so that shouldn't be any problem.
I do that all the time without any problems.
Anyway, that was happening in 2008 as I wrote above, so it shouldn't matter right now.

Like you, I like large icons and text displayed in the bookmarks toolbar. For me, the easiest solution was to use a Firefox "large" theme such as "Aeon Jumbo" which solved all my problems in one fell swoop.

Hope this helps,

Eannes
