If you ever need to increase the size of text in the address bar within FireFox it’s very easy to do.  Before picture:

FFhintAddressbar1before

The below directory location may only applicable to Windows 7 but am sure if you hunt around on other operating systems you’ll find what you need. The AppData directory is a hidden folder so you will have to navigate to it manually. Will be something like :

C:Users<username>AppDataRoamingMozillaFirefoxProfiles160agnxl.defaultchrome

Within this directory you’ll see a file called “userChrome-example.css”. If you open it up with an editor and add the following line:

FFhintAddressbar1css 

#urlbar {font-size:26px !important; height:45px !important;}

Save this file as “userChrome.css” and restart FireFox, outcome :

FFhintAddressbar1after

When you open the userChrome css file you’ll notice that there are other options for the end user to change.
