I love using Thunderbird for checking all my mail accounts, including Gmail and Outlook. However, I'm having a difficult time trying to locate a setting to change the default font and size. It seems inefficient that I have to change the size of my email and the signature separately each time. Any help is greatly appreciated!

  • Do you mean something else than menu View > Font Size ?

  • yes. Specifically, the font size for writing the email.

  • You can also increase layout.css.devPixelsPerPx (e.g. to 1.8). It increases the GUI font size but also font size when writing mails. See support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/config-editor
