Step by step guide to changing text size on web pages when using FireFox web browser.
In the early versions of Firefox the text should still resize properly even if the website text you are viewing is not designed for accessibility. However sometimes some of the sections of the site still may not resize, which still makes it a little difficult to use some websites with the large text option enabled. Currently Firefox does not resize images.
Increase or decrease the size of the text for the web page by:
a) Open the "View" menu located at the top of your FireFox browser with the mouse or press the "Alt" and "V" keys at the same time.
b) Select the "Text Size" option with your mouse or by pressing the letter "Z".
c) You can increase or decrease the text size using the computer mouse or by pressing the up and down arrow keys and pressing the "Enter " button on your keyboard.
d) Another way to achieve the above is to press "Ctrl" and the "+" sign to increase the text size, and "Ctrl" plus "-" will decrease text size. Pressing "Ctrl" and "0" will return you to the default text size.
How to set the minimum text size in Firefox for web pages
a) Open the "Tools" menu with the mouse or press the "Alt" and "T" keys on your keyboard.
b) Click on "Options", or press the letter "O", to open the Options preferences.
c) Click the "Content" tab or use the arrow keys until it is highlighted.
d). In the Fonts and Colors preference box click on "Advanced", or press "Alt" and "D" keys to open your "Fonts" preferences.
e) Click on "Minimum font size" or press "Alt" and "O". Use the up and down arrows to select a font size and then press the "Enter" key.
f) Next click the "OK "button or press the "Enter" key.
g) Click the "OK" button or use your tab key to highlight the "OK" button and press the "Enter" key.
