How to change the toolbar font size in Firefox


Good gawd, Mozilla! Why don’t you provide a quick option for changing the toolbar and menu font size? I’m not talking about web pages, that can be adjusted using ctl +/-. No, we’re talking about the microscopic font you’re using in your menus. There was an extension to do this, the Theme Font and Size Changer, but after the Quantum update it no longer works. D’oh! You’ve killed many of my favorite extensions with this update.

So I’ll cut to the chase:

- In a new tab in Firefox, go to about:config

- In the search bar, search for the term “layout.css.devPixelsPerPx


- The value will probably be something stupid like “-1”. Change that to, say, 1.1 or 1.2.

And there you go. Simple. So why is Mozilla making this so difficult?
