I have been using Thunderbird for several years and love it. However, earlier this week, all the text on the home page changed to a very small font which is very difficult to read... even with my prescription computer glasses. I checked all the Tools, Options, etc. and can't find any setting to adjust the font for the entire page. Might this require an Add-On, Extension, etc? If so, please provide the name of it. Thank you very much. Bo...

The theme font and size changer add-on probably expired. See http://www.rossde.com/ThemeFontSizeChan ... index.html for a version that will work. If you have problems browse viewtopic.php?f=39&t=3037118 for details on each step. For example viewtopic.php?p=14787017#p14787017 clarifies how to disable the automatic updating.

After several attempts to get the Theme Font & Size Changer for TB add-on with NO expiration date, I got it to work. Had to uninstall TB, reinstall, install add-on. Now able to change the global font to a normal & readable size. Thank you hawke1 and my blind friend who is a long-time TB user and computer wizard.

I still love TB. However, I miss Outlook Express.
