Using Firefox v9.0.1 on OS X Lion v10.7.2

In userChrome.css, how do I adjust the font size that appears in the context menu when you right-click on something (like a link) on a web page?

I tried DOM inspector but cannot decipher what I am looking for.

The CSS selector for the Right-click context menu is:

#contentAreaContextMenu * {
    property: value !important;



Any more userChrome.css tweaks? :)

Sorry for late response... I do not seem to get emails when somebody responds to my questions! #contentAreaContextMenu menuitem { font-size: 12px !important; } is what I needed. I have accepted your answer as correct. thanks – jsherk Jan 9 '12 at 4:30
