Firefox Fonts and Colours

Fonts

The Fonts option in Firefox allows you to select the fonts used to display text. You may find it easier to read a sans serif font, for example Arial, or a serif font, for example Times New Roman.

You can set Fonts options in the following way:

  1. Click the Tools menu and select Options.
  2. At the top of the Options dialog box select Content
  3. You can now select the default font and size

There are further Font settings available by clicking the Advanced button. Advanced settings for Fonts allow you to specify your preferred font for different types of text.

Some web page designers specify the fonts that their pages use. If you want to override these fonts you will need to untick the option labelled Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above
