In regards to Firefox: Small fonts, and question about versions.


Hi there, I've a few questions.


1) The fonts at times in Firefox are really small. I've the latest, 0.9.3 - I've tested it out in all Opera, Konqueror and Firefox, and I only get this problem in Firefox and Opera.

Is there anyway to change this? I've set it so the minimum font is 10, and still nothing! I can't think of anyway to fix this.

2) I've both 0.8 installed, and 0.9.3 - 0.8 came on the machine, and 0.9.3 I install. Both are at different locations. However I want to remove 0.8, and replace it with the 0.9.3 and have to so when I click Firefox in the KMenu, or type Firefox into Konsole or Run Command, it comes up with 0.9.3 and not 0.8 - Easiest way is to remove 0.8 I think, but then how to set it so 0.9.3 takes it's place?

3) Also, where and how do I get all the latest plugins for flash, Java, etc. etc.?


Thanks.

If you hold the control button down and scroll the mouse wheel, you can adjust the font size.

http://macromedia.com has all your Flash stuff.

http://sun.com has all your Java stuff.

Thanks for that. Holding down CTRL and rolling the mouse wheel does work.
However, is there a more permanent and better fix? I mean since Konqueror can view it right, isn't there a way to get Firefox to work right?

Also, thanks for the links to the flash and java plugins.

To know where is located your Firefox 0.9 files try this command line
#rpm -qil MozillaFirefox
Originally located on /opt/MozillaFirefox/
with 'rpm -Uvh....... ' can upgrade this file or try to put on originally location
Another option is to unistrall the original and add a link on your desktop
Good Look !!!

A solution to the fonts issue is usually installing MS True Type Core Fonts. The file is called msttcorefonts and can be found... somewhere. I messed about with this a while back.
As for the shortcut to FireFox, you may want to assign a keyboard shortcut - I have always done this when using KDE, and now all my most-run programs are shortcut-based with FluxBox (Alt+F1 - F12).
