Dear Amit:

I also had the same problem. What I have done for the time being is to go to:

Menu ..... Desktop ...... Set Global Font Size

Change the current set value to a higher one.
I have placed it at 84 DPI.
Now the fonts look agreeably bigger.

Dear RRKoothadi

When I imported all the fonts from windows directory in puppy linux, it automatically selected another font and now it is much better.

Hope it will be useful for others also.

I downloaded Swiftfox (a speed-optimised version of Firefox) and it works well in Puppy. If others are interested, here's the link;

http://getswiftfox.com/

One problem I found in Firefox (and Flock as well, which is based on Firefox) is that it keeps wanting to update itself automatically whenever a new version is released, which takes up a lot of bandwidth when you're on dialup as I am.

Colonel,
Go to "Edit>Preferences" and then click "Advanced" and then the update tab. You can now tell Firefox, or probably any other Mozilla based browser, to not update automatically.

Thanks for the info. Smile I'll follow your advice, though I'll still update Firefox occasionally (just not every release).

Best,

CP .

Currently on Dillo 2.2, the taliban of the HTML Code.
Downloading Swiftfox, good installer. Same problem, like Firefox 3:
"error while loading shared libraries: libxul.so: cannot handle TLS data".
