How to increase the default text size in Firefox

You can specify a default font size so that text is always larger when you use the Firefox browser. However, some websites don’t allow you to change the font size so these settings will not be work for all websites.

  1. Select the Menu button in the top-right of the Firefox web browser.
  2. Select Preferences from the menu.
  3. On the Firefox settings page, scroll down to the Language and Appearance section.
  4. Under Fonts and Colours, select the drop-down menu for Size and choose a new default size.

Note: If this does not work it could be because someone else manages your computer settings (an IT department or administrator). If this is the case, you will need to contact them to access these settings or for further help.
