Windows 7: Firefox 18 / win 7 home / Menu titles impossible to read

Firefox 18 / win 7 home / Menu titles impossible to read

I installed TACO (anti-tracking addon) in Firefox.
My menus and bookmarks became too small too read. Sometimes they would become normal or too large but moving the mouse/keyboard made it just too WAY too small.
I did a bunch of stuff recommended by Mozilla to fix but in the end I
uninstalled FF including all personal data and reinstalled.
Same problem.

This only happens in FF.

Any ideas???

I would recommend removing TACO (anti-tracking addon).

I don't know what you mean by; I already removed everything and reinstalled.

I removed all addons, reset firefox, uninstalled FF and DL'd latest versions (which was the same version I already had) and reinstalled.

The menu resizing only happens in FF, not in IE.

sorry,but you didnt make it very clear that you had no addons running until your last post.
i was assuming you had reinstalled FF and the addons and were still having the menu size issue.
im afraid i dont have any solutions for you.
have you posted in one of the mozilla forums.

Sorry No offense intended. I did post a mozilla forum this morning. Probably has nothing to do w/FF but it happened when I did something new with FF so.....

not offended, its something i know nothing about .
i was hoping it was the TACO add on as ghostery would have been the cure.
give it time more people will be online here later and someone may have a clue.
