How to change Firefox toolbar height and font height?

Postby goog64 » Fri Dec 21, 2012 12:53 am

Hi,
My font in the address bar, bookmarks toolbar, etc is huge. Also, the bookmarks toolbar is about 1cm high. Can someone please tell me how can I reduce these?

All the searches I've done talk about modifying "userChrome.css" files and "Chrome" and "Profile" folders, but the posts are all a few years old and refer to Firefox 3.x, and I can't find any of these folders or files on my computer.

Linux mint 14 Cinnamon
Firefox 17.0.1

Thanks so much for your help.

Goto Cinnamon Settings>Fonts and adjust Window title font to preferred size.
And adjust others like Default font & Document font

Thanks so much for your reply Orbmiser.
I tried it and the default font changed it, but unfortunately I couldn't find a way to change the height of the toolbar, so it still took up just as much of my screen even when I made the font microscopic.
Do you know how to change the bookmarks toolbar height?

I believe Title bar height is system wide preference generated by theme used and not adjustable?
Only bar adjustable is the task bar in Cinnamon Settings>Panel can make it thicker or thinner.

If you have specific titlebar size needs try other themes that use smaller footprints for them.
