The font of reading and writing of newsgroup messages is very small and
I would like to make it larger. It used to be larger. To display the
tabs along the top of the screen I click "write" because I don't know
any other way to get the tabs displayed - but it works. With tabs
displayed I click "edit" then "preferences" then "display". There is a
setting for font size there but no matter what I set it to it never
changes the font size. Does anybody know how to change the font size?
In Thunderbird, go to: Edit >> Preferences >> Display.
Select the "Formatting" tab.
At the right of "Fonts & Colors", click the "Advanced" button.
You will now see a pop-up. At the top of this pop-up is a drop-down
labelled "Fonts for:".
Each script (writing system) in the "Fonts for:" drop-down has its own
separate font settings underneath, including its own separate font sizes.
At a bare minimum you will need to increase the font sizes for both
"Latin" and "Other Writing Systems". You may also want to increase
some of the others, for example if you read or write Cyrillic or Greek.
