How about making the font bigger so that it is actually readable?

In my browser, code is the same size as body text. Most browsers have separate settings for font size for fixed and variable-pitch fonts; perhaps you need to up your fixed-pitch font size.

Really, where is that setting in Firefox? I always see code very small.

Go to Edit | Preferences | General | Fonts and Colors. There are four popups with font names on the left, and three with sizes on the right. I have "16", "16", and "14" in those three boxes. On a screen with larger dot pitch, you might want smaller numbers.

Hmm, I no longer have an older installed Firefox version to compare with, but in Firefox 2.0 the font settings are at:

Firefox -> Preferences -> Content tab -> Fonts & Colors section -> Advanced button

Or, for lesser computers:

Tools -> Options -> Content tab -> Fonts & Colors section -> Advanced button

It's also worth noting that you can use cmd/ctrl key combined with '=' or '-' to increase or decrease all displayed fonts on the current tab. There's no need to be limited to what a web site chooses for you by default.

Yah, sorry, didn't think about it. I was sitting on my Fedora Core 3 box which still has some version of FireFox 1.0.

In Firefox you can also do CTRL + mousescrollwheelthingy to increase and decrease the font.
