There is no way to make the font bigger in QAC. There should be a way to make the font sizes bigger

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open QAC
2.Try to find a way to make the text bigger
Actual Results:  
There is no way to manipulate text size of either what is coming or going through QAC

Expected Results:  
One should be able to manipulate and make the font bigger or smaller as we do in the browser
I know this would be an important accessibility factor to consider but AFAIK something like this would require a dynamic XUL layout that is currently not possible in our implementation. I am not exactly entirely sure if the browser can delegate that functionality to addons (i.e, I have never seen any that let me perform a font change, unless it was global - but I have never tried)

We currently have aspects of our design which are hard coded and by changing font sizes, it would throw things off and break other things.
I'll leave this open to harthur for any other comments
shirish, how do you change the font size for Firefox? I'm looking for what preference you usually set, we might be able to detect if the user has that preference set and change the font size for QAC accordingly.
Also, I was wondering shirish if there was a particular area of the QAC you thought was hard to read?
Litmus has been replaced by MozTrap. 

If we want an extension to integrate with MozTrap, it would be better to start from scratch with a new extension rather than trying to shoehorn that functionality into the >5 year old QAC.
