CTRL +
CTRL and scroll wheel
Or only the text?

Set the Minimum Font Size under Tools>Options>Appearance>Fonts and & Colors....stuff.

That is a pretty basic question, so, in future, try using F1 (Help) for simple stuff as it will be quicker for you to get an answer.

Your is one of the most important questions for using a browser for me.
It is why I use Firefox and could not imagine giving up the solution to your question which I use:

* Firefox > Tools > Options > CONTENT
[next to Size:] Advanced... > Minimum font size: 14 [or 22 for resolutions over 1080.]
To make the text on most web pages larger by default.

However, some text may not be completely visible if you change this option due to individual web page design.
To address that problem, install Add-on: Toolbar Buttons http://codefisher.org/toolbar_button/
Then go to View > Toolbars > Customize >

Scroll down to Minimum Font Size and drag Minimum Font Size button to the Menu Bar to get a quick On/Off button for Minimum font size if font is too large on some pages.
Open the pod bay doors, Cortana.

Did you even look in Options which is in Tools menu?.

See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/settings-for-web-content-pop-ups-fonts-languages

Look you have posted in a Firefox section yet you have not stated what web browser you are using and are posting with Google Chrome.

Toobar Buttons doesn't work on FX 55 and up. The AMO page says that it's compatible, but none of the buttons show up.

NoSquint (Plus) can do this
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefo ... uint-plus/

problem - nosquint plus has a built-in eol date - 3 months after release it will stop working - that time is coming end of oct.

not sure if Zoom Page also stores it site specific - but it will survive as webextension (WE) for sure:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefo ... zoom-page/
has also benefits for images read description please.

if you already have stylish installed you can try it this way, eg
Code: Select all
@-moz-document domain("forums.mozillazine.org")
{
  .postbody .content {
    font-size: 1.5em;
}
}

increases size for post content
