Forum text size.

I'm trying Firefox instead of Safari for a while and the forum text size is about 1/3 as large.
I can change the default Firefox text but it doesn't effect the forum. Is there a way to make the text larger?
I took a screenshot of Safari vs. Firefox.

I am in Firefox also. Are you on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or phone? The main desktop version of AirForums or the App? The following comments are for a MacBook Pro laptop, and the main desktop version of AF -- FWIW.

When you do the first draft of the post, there is a choice at the top left of the text composition box [where I am typing right now] -- for the font and text size.

If you are editing a post, you have to click on the "Go Advanced" button below this text box, where you can choose font/size.

I think you can make your font and size preferences into permanent "defaults" in the User CP at the top left, in the blue menu bar above:
User CP>Options>Misc. Options>[stumble your way through -- too many options to sum up here IMO].

Also the FAQ link in the same menu bar above has:
FAQ>Board FAQ>Reading and Posting Messages>[a variety of choices which may include font/size IMO]

Also the "Forum Admin" forum may contain more helpful comments, than this "Airstream Lifestyle" forum does IMO:

I think it's easier than that...go to the FireFox options & "Zoom" to where the text size is comfortable for you.

Do you have to do that Firefox "Zoom" operation every time you go online? Plus wouldn't that affect everything you do during the current computer work session [not just AF]?

I am in Firefox, and the AirForums text size is not a problem. I suspect it is in the User Control Panel options I mentioned earlier.

"Set it once and forget it?"

Mollysdad, have you tried any of these suggestions? It may be a combination of AirForums and Firefox adjustments to make?

Thanks.

PS -- Firefox steps:
>Firefox
>Preferences
>Zoom
>Default Zoom
.....+mine is now at 110 BTW -- did I set this years ago and it stuck?
>Zoom text only box
.....+mine is not checked -- would this help you, Mollysdad?

Not gonna mess with any FF settings here this morning.

Good luck.
