Hi, does anyone know if the legacy add-on "Theme Font & Size Changer" will ever be updated for use with Firefox 57+? There are close to 100k people using it at present and it really helps users with eyesight problems. Please FF if there is some way you can accommodate the extension developer to update this for FF57+ it would be much appreciated. Sorry this is my first post on this forum so please move if in wrong place.
:)

Moving to Firefox Support...

&....
I did not find it in the "list" & the author hasn't responded to the requests as to updating it yet.

Yes the author has already 'ported' the majority of his many extensions but alas not this one. I'm wondering is there something about FF57 that is making it impossible for him to update it??

Hi,
Well, all I can suggest is that you contact him via a Support eMail & see what transpires.

This one is pretty easy to solve. It's only one line of .css code and I covered that one here - viewtopic.php?p=14710967#p14710967

Hi Frank,
Many thanks for the info.
Much appreciated.

Hopefully, debs1000 will be able to sort it out.

Thanks, the addon is currently working fine on my main laptop with FF 56. I have the FF 57 beta version installed on my spare laptop just for experimenting and off course the 'Add to Firefox' link for the addon is greyed out because it's incompatible. I'll boot up spare lappy later and see what I can do......

I've done it in FF 57 beta, whoopee! Had to google around a bit to find out where exactly in Windows 10 my FF profile folder was situated, made new 'chrome' folder and in that put a 'userchrome.css' file and entered the adjustment I needed. My brain is now fried but problem sorted. Thanks all!

For other people, the link above (viewtopic.php?p=14710967#p14710967) links straight to this - viewtopic.php?p=14005643#p14005643 and the 4 steps needed.

For example -

#2. Firefox Menu > Help > Troubleshooting Information > Show Folder (or variation of)
#3. Paste .zip into that Folder (that's your profile)...



Btw...it's called userChrome.css

No problem.

Going in the suggested downloading the .zip route gets around problems like that, as the chrome folder and userChrome/Content.css files and examples are all pre-made and named for people. viewtopic.php?p=14005643#p14005643
