Chapter 8. Other Interesting Features > Tweaking Your Display

Tweaking Your Display

Because you’ve seen all sorts of ways to tweak your Firefox interface in this chapter and with themes in the previous chapter, it’s only fair that there should be a brief discussion of a few things you can do with the actual display.

Chapter 1, “Getting Started,” showed you how to set options for displaying the website fonts and colors. This is wonderful, but you should also know how to change the size of the text in the display. When you have a web page open, go to View | Font Size and select either Increase or Decrease. (You can also press Ctrl++ or Ctrl+- to do the same thing.) This cranks the text display up (or down) two sizes. Do this a time or two more and the text will either be very large or very small. Pressing Ctrl+0 (on the keyboard, not the number pad) resets the text to the default size. If your mouse has a mouse wheel, pressing Ctrl while you move the mouse wheel does the same thing. Resizing doesn’t work with graphics, but Firefox can resize text even if the size is hard-coded in pixels—another advantage over IE.
