Increasing the text zoom doesn't really help much. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Visit a site with poor line spacing. 2. Wish you could push a button to fix it. 3. Find no way to do that. Actual Results: Give up and highlight one line at a time, or save the file and view it in a text editor. Expected Results: View->Text Zoom->Change Line Spacing Another example of a site that, due to bad site design, would be more legible if Mozilla provided this feature: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;271754 I want to make it clear that this is not Mozilla's fault per se, but it is something for which Mozilla should be able to compensate, for the sake of the user, who cannot fix the site design. I'm not stuck on any particular specific UI for this; if it doesn't belong under Text Zoom, perhaps both Text Zoom and this (and the upcoming Page Zoom that includes scaling images) could all be grouped together, or along those lines. Whatever.
Looks like bug 159494 dupe to me. If you routinely need access to MSKB, try the solution in comment 108 there.
> Looks like bug 159494 dupe to me. The MSKB may have been fixed, but there are a number of sites where the line spacing is not what a user might like. Even text that is not overlapping may be "too close" for some users' eyes. The workaround in bug 159494 comment 108 is specific not only to a particular site but to the way that site was constructed at the time the comment was made. It would not work in the general case. This rfe is about the general ability for users to tweak the line spacing on any site at any time, much like the text zoom feature. I realise it's not a high priority, but I filed it because over time the lack of this feature has bothered me a several times at various different sites; the two examples I gave were only examples.
Can't you just set line-height in userContent.css? Adding an extra menuitem and submenu to adjust lineheight seems like overkill to me.
We already support this. It's called a user stylesheet.
