tiny font, con't

Thanks very much for your prompt reply. Actually, the font size on the web pages is fine. It's the tiny font size in the Firefox address bar that's the problem, as shown in the attachment I sent. I've tried to fix the problem as a Windows "metrics" (problem but that doesn't address the font size in the URL bar; it relates to non-browser settings (Windows color and appearance). It's weird that suddently the font size in the Firefox address bar shrank. I really appreciate your taking the time to help me. ellenc

System font settings

It looks like the same font in your menu bar. That's set via Windows. Right click Desktop > Personalize > Themes and edit your current theme. I think changing the font for "Active Title Bar" should work but it may be one of the other settings so don't rule those out.

That's great to hear ellenc! Thank you for posting back.
Could you be more specific, and the steps you took, was it one of maxie's suggestions or Callender's?

If one of their suggestions is working okay you can finalize your thread by marking it solved. It really helps when other members are looking for an answer.

If something does go a-wry later on, you can always re-mark it Unsolved and continue your thread.

Its the green button next to the orange Post Reply button that only you can see because it is your thread.
