    Talking Web page fonts?

    Hi all
    Really pleased with Ubuntu everything works perfectly, just one thing - how do I increase fonts on web pages please?. Using Firefox 3.0 and I nearly need a magnifying glass each time. Entering `zoom` a few times gets it ok to use but those settings not saved and have to be entered each time.
    Regards
    Steve

    Edit | Preferences | Content

    It has an option for changing the default font size.

    How about point your mouse at the webpage, hold down Ctrl key, and scroll your mouse scroll wheel?

    You're welcome.

    Something I just noticed, though. It seems that this scales the whole web page, including the graphics, which don't look as good scaled. There may be a better solution.....

    None but ourselves can free our minds

    I wouldn't recommend that, as it will definitely change the way how web pages look by forcing all pages to use the exact fonts you have configured..

    Instead just set the minimum font size in the same place and you'll be fine.
