The font size for the article summary in search results is too small. It should be the same as the normal size in the actual article (e.g. the summary paragraph in http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/bookmarks)

I've increased the default font-size to 14px. This increases the size of the entire page. If that looks okay, I'll go ahead. If not, I could increase just the summary. Or summary + title.
I'm not sure what you mean with "entire page" but it doesn't sound like the right solution. The title is already fairly large, and I certainly don't want us to randomly increase the size of e.g. sidebar items, the footer, the topnav etc like that.
Please just change the contents inside the search results area, including:

* The summary of each search item
* Navigation links:  "1  2  >>"
* "Can't find what you're looking for? Ask a support question instead!"

Make the font size exactly that of the normal paragraph text in KB articles (maybe that's 14px as you said above).

Thanks!
The screenshot shows the following increased in size:
* "39 search results for..."
* Paging (navigation links)
* Summary of each search item
* Title of each search item
* "Can't find..."

I suppose I should increase the "Can't find..." text more, and the title not at all. The sidebars are not affected. Will post a screenshot tomorrow.

Yes, that sounds good. Thanks!

David: see this.
* Font for search summary is same size as article (14px)
* Pagination, as well.
* "(count) search results for..." is a little larger (16px)
* "Can't find what you're..." same as count (16px)

If this looks good, I'll get right on it!

Why do we want the search results to be larger than the summary of each article? That feels a bit random to me. If 14px is the standard font size for article contents, I'd go with that here too.

> * "Can't find what you're..." same as count (16px)

This one is slightly different though; I agree with that. I think we should use the same style as we're using at the bottom of the articles themselves. That is, the size/style used in the text "Help us improve this article. Submit additional feedback." In other words, a <p class="feedback-info"> block. Does that make sense?

Please go ahead and commit that and we'll take a look!

Check it out. I "feedback-info"-ed the "Can't find..." box.

Looks great!

"No pages matched the search criteria" is incredibly small still though, but let's deal with that in a separate bug (maybe it can be replaced with some search tips or something like a tag cloud instead?)
