How to customize the font in Firefox [Tip]

Firefox doesn’t have any built-in options to change its menu, tab and address bar fonts with. However, there is a great Firefox add-on with which you can instantly select alternative fonts for the browser. With Theme Font and Size Changer you can choose alternative Firefox fonts, font sizes and colors.

Open this page and click on the + Add to Firefox option to add it to Firefox. Then you’ll find a Theme Font Size Changer button on the add-on bar at the top right of Firefox’s window. Click on that button to open the window in the shot below. Alternatively, select Tools > Theme Font Size Changer.
