How to increase toolbar font sizes in mozilla?

How do I increase the font sizes of my Mozilla toolbar? Like where it says file, edit, view, go, etc? Those font sizes?

Would those be the GTK fonts? If so, create or edit the file .gtkrc-2.0 in your /home/user/ directory. In the file have a line that says something like gtk-font-name = "Sans 14" or whatever font size you want to use.

This would help:

It's been a long time since I had to use it, so some of these points may not be correct. You can always experiment.

- You can use the unit point (eg 12pt) for specifying font sizes, you don't have to use mm (millimetres)
- You can remove some sections that you don't need from the file (eg when you are happy with defaults)
- The files are placed in a path like ~/.mozilla/default/8qke875o.slt/chrome. Make them if necessary.
