freitasm: How is the left box and the editor now?


Oh man, that is a great combination of settings.  So much easier to read and use as a result.

Fantastic - well done and thx to everyone who past on to freitasm their excellent comments and helpful hints concerning this. It certainly makes for a more enjoyable read of the site, though I still zoom in a little bit due to my eyesight.

Thanks

I still can't see the insert youtube URL button though?  I can see the insert URL link, and insert Picture buttons, but not the video one?...

Have you considered declaring the font family using the san-serif keyword instead of a specific font?
https://css-tricks.com/sans-serif/

This means the browser/os chooses the best/default san-serif font to use, currently Arial on Windows and Helvetica on Mac.

Did it change again? I'm seeing everything in Lucida Console now - yet an hour ago it was in Arial?

Yes, testing the sans-serif option but it seems your system doesn't default to Arial as expected.

Reversing that.

The font size seems to change randomly depending what page I'm on in a thread.

This seems like a good idea. 
Most linux systems default to Dejavu sans / serif fonts.
I'd love to see this when I visit geekzone.
Currently my linux distro substitutes Liberation-sans for Arial - but the dejavu fonts are that much nicer.

You could change the substitution on your machine ...

On which os/browser?

For example Android doesn't have Arial so you'll only see Droid Sans or Roboto (unless you use a web font) even if you specify Arial.

freitasm: That was a reply to the post immediately above.


Ah right.

Would be interesting to know what os/brower quickymart is using to get something like Lucidia Console as the default san serif...

I'd wager bung Firefox config.
