    Mozilla Question


    As you might have noticed, some pages are created with insane small text, and it might be difficult to read it. So, to solve that, i ise View -> Text Zoom -> Whatever % i want. But when I exit that tab, or mozilla that selection is reset. So I was woundering if someone know (if possible) how to make that text size selection permantent?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't know how to set a default zoom factor for the text, but you can set different default font sizes (that the zoom is later applied to) in preferences/appearance/fonts.

    I find it is only small on certain pages and for those you can press:
    ctrl + to enlarge them and then ctrl - to bring it back to regular size. I couldn't imagine having it any bigger permanently, but my eyes might start to go one day.

    Or you can use Alt+MouseScrollWheel to text size zoom.

    Alt+MouseWheelScroll has a different effect in my browser. It controls the history of the browser by one page. I have to use CTRL+ALT+<+|-> to scroll through.

    Here's another strange story. Back when I had Debian (potato, this was my first attemp at Debian which resulted back to RedHat 7.2 at the time) I was able to use ctrl+alt+mouse scroll to change the text size. Now that I've achieved success in Debian (woody), I can't do that. Only ctrl+<plus or minus> works.

    You can rebind your scroll wheel in Mozilla's preferences.
