    Foxfilre 57 and Theme and Font Size Changer Not Compatible


    Since the early days of Firefox I have used the Theme and Font Size Changer add on to increase the text size of the Bookmarks Toolbar.
    Apparently, It does not work with FF version 57.0. Does anyone know if a compatible version is in the works or if there is a work around so I can increase the size of the Bookmarks Toolbar?

    I have posted the question in the Mozillazine Firefod forum but have not received an answer that works.

    My tired old eyes thank you for your help.

    This is version 62.0, which the Mozilla Extension search engine, in its continuing brilliance, could not find. I had to search elsewhere to find the information for you. The extension seems not to do anything other than ask you a few questions about what you would like to see in a working Fx 57 version.

    (Kindly note `its', the possessive form; `it's' means, among other things, "it is."; this common misuse is just one of my extensive collection of improper use of the English language, and this comment has nothing to do with you, I just felt like making an off-subject statement from my pet peeve collection.)

    From what I have read Firefox 57 has been completely rewritten and most (probably all) of the older Add ons will not work, The developer's of add ons must rewrite them.

    Asking on the Mozilla site is probably useless, Find a way to contact the developer and ask him/her.

    Yes they have re written it, I have been using it since Beta 2 I am now using Fx 58 Beta 4 which is even better. Some of the old extensions will not be re written.

    Josey, I downloaded 58.OB4, and when I install T&FSC I still get the same message page, requesting I fill out a survey.
    And no ability to use any of its functions.

    How did you get it to work?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Cheers,

    Hi there

    @Not Myself.

    For non native English speakers - this is an easy error so I wouldn't worry about it. If you really want example of bad English try the phrase I could care less when what they mean is I COULDN'T CARE LESS or at least I've found on the streets of London anybody under about the age of 30 when not looking into Mobile phones (even when crossing busy streets) can't say a simple sentence without using the word "Like" at least half a dozen times.

    Anyway to get back to the point I think FF theme and font changer works just fine on 52.4.0 (at least it does on my system). In any case you can always make text larger or smaller with CTRL + or CTRL - keys.

    I probably should upgrade to VER 58 but I tend to only use FF these days if something gets hosed up in IE11. I HATE Edge so I'm not going to bother --in any case if you have SKY GO it doesn't work with EDGE anyway.

    Cheers
