 Firefox Font size and import IE bookmarks

I have been advised to move from Internet Explorer due to it's weaknesses to either Goggle Chrome or Firefox. Have found some sites I must use will not accept Crome not sure on Firefox. Frankly don't care to trust Goggle with any more info but in trying Firefox and it might be true with Chrome find that the OP type is showing larger than any answers are. Looked back just now with IE and think the same but not to the same extent as with Firefox.

So is this typical Firefox, something in settings with Firefox, or any suggestion?

Kenny, I've used Firefox for quite some time now without any issues, in fact there's some nifty add-ons that make it really convenient.

I'm not sure what you mean about 'OP type' though. Every post is in the same font and size to me.


Best of luck.

Thanks Murf, then it must be something in my settings with Firefox.

Even with this thread the font in my question is about twice the size yours and the reply I am typing right now is. Any suggestion on what it might be?

Does anyone know if there is a simple way to move all bookmarks from Internet Explorer to Firefox? Chrome did it automatically.

You got me on the type size Kenny.

The bookmarks however is an easy one.

Click on "Bookmarks" and "Organize" within that6 pull down, or hold down "Ctrl" and "Shift" keys at the same time and then while doing so, hit the "B" key, when the new window opens up, select "Import & Backup" at the top middle'ish. When the menu comes down select "Import HTML" then click on "Microsoft Explorer" and click on next. It does it itself from there I believe.


Best of luck.

Thank you Ted and Dennis. I read both of your post and opened up bookmarks in Firefox and clicked on Organize and wow they had an import from IE option. Simple. Now to get them fully into Firefox for it put them all under IE bookmarks. Laughing out loud

Dennis, my font settings are as you described. Changed it and then changed it back but did not make any difference.

I really thank both of you.

Ken try this in the same place as before:

Minimum font size set. Some sites do not display properly with a minimum font size. To reset the minimum font size:

1.At the top of the Firefox window On the menu bar, click on the Tools menu, and select Options
2.Click to select the Content panel.
3.In the Fonts & Colors section, click Advanced....
4.Change the Minimum font size to None.

Where you able to figure out the issue with your font settings? I can forward a video that will walk you through the process if need be. Just let me know.
