Firefox: Changing size of dialog boxes

📅 2009-Dec-05 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ firefox ⬩ 📚 Archive


Since I changed the fonts of the Windows 7 theme, I cannot view all the options in some of the Firefox dialog boxes. These dialog boxes in Firefox do not come with the window resize option so cannot be resized using the mouse. To resize these dialogs, set their sizes in userChrome.css as explained in this helpful MozillaZine article: Dialog too small or too large.

For example, to increase the size of the Fonts dialog in Firefox, I added this to my userChrome.css file:

/* Increase width of Fonts dialog. */
#FontsDialog {width: 100ex !important;}
