It seems that this extension has expired today. Everything is tiny on the folder panel. Virtually unreadable!

The layout of T/Bird is very similar in its profile to that of Firefox.

So, first - viewtopic.php?p=14005643#p14005643

Then - viewtopic.php?p=14711081#p14711081

Alter the font size to anything you like. Usually you would alter the message font in the Options/Preferences settings, but you could also just put that code in the userContent.css file, as well as the userChrome.css and it would change that for you.

You will then never need to use/depend on that extension ever again.

Anybody ever tried going into the Config Editor and changing?
Code: Select all
layout.css.devPixelsPerPx


Edit: That makes the Window too big when maximized and pushes the Today Pane off screen with a value of 1.0. :(

Is there any hope that someone, somewhere can re-establish Theme and Font Changer... or something like it? I'll need a new eyeglass prescription to view the folder pane etc....and I'm sure I'm not the only one!

Yep, I installed it on a Windows 7 system the other day! :)

Peace...
