A search has not given me an answer so I'll ask here.
Is there a way to 'permanently' change the font size for one particular site only?
I'm asking here and , ironically, the site I have to increase it on is right here at City Data.
It wouldn't be any problem at all to do it manually except that I like keeping a few pages/tabs open and it also affects those other sites so I have to keep changing every time I switch back and forth between tabs.

On most browsers you can go to the tool on the top right and change the zoom.

Thank you for replying but that wasn't the question.

I apologize if I did not understand your question. What I posted works for what you wanted, (each site will be different based on what you set them for) on Google Chrome and Firefox and probably other browsers, what part of your question did I not answer? Are you referring to the font of what you type or trying to read a site, that is what I thought you meant?

Wasn't aware the zoom setting stuck on a per site basis but that does indeed work on Firefox, even on closing and opening the browser.

Changing just the font size on a per site basis is not impossible but no easy way to do it I'm aware of. What you are going to be looking for is something that will allow you edit and store custom CSS per site.

The last two replies are what I feared was the answer.
I suppose this qualifies for the thread on another forum about trivial 1st world problems.

Changing just the font size on a per site basis is possible, at least on my Mac with OS X 10.13.3 & FireFox 56.0.2 (which is not the latest release)

By going to VIEW > ZOOM & checking "Zoom Text Only", the text zooms up & down but images, etc stay the same.

Also, you can first zoom +/- the whole page with images, and check then Zoom Text Only +/-, if desired.

As always, YMMV.

Firefox used to have an add on which would do exactly this, set a font size for a particular site. But I dont think its available anymore.

Chrome will remember the zoom setting for each site, at least the version of Chrome I am using does that.
