The font size when I view or write text it is very small. I have searched and found answers that basically say to change the Display size and the minimum in advanced tab.

I have set it as high as 22 and nothing seems to work. Is there any setting anywhere that will make the text larger?

Thunderbird version 60.0b9 (32-bit), Windows 10.

Thanks

1. Are you composing messages in plain text or HTML?

2. Is there a reason that you are running a beta version of Thunderbird rather than the current release version (52.8.0)?

When I went to the download page it was the one that downloaded. Should I look for a non beta?
Thanks

Unless you have some reason to want to deal with beta versions, yes. Running the current release version would normally be recommended. https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/all/

Dan, I uninstalled the beta and installed the link you gave me. After install the Theme Font Size Changer is now active, but no icon to change anything. Thunderbird fonts are back to what they were. The Lightning Calendar is on the tool bar but not active.

Should I copy my old non beta profile to the new install? I remember copying Lightning data to the beta, but can't remember what I did. No worries, it's just aged related dementia.

Thanks for your help.

Dan I removed and installed Lightning and that fixed the calendar problem. Font changer, have no idea what to do.

On the Composition General tab it says HTML Tahoma Medium. Is that where I look?
