Not exactly the same technique but I use the following CSS rules in 

body, p, div, span, em, b, i, ul, li, ol, a, tt, pre, blockquote, table,
    th, td, tr, input, select, option, submit, font {
  font-size   : 14px !important; line-height : 17px !important;

h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, font  {
  font-size   : 16px !important; line-height : 19px !important;

Which locks in font sizes (rather than just limiting the bottom-end) yet
still allows for bigger headlines.  If I missed any tags I haven't
noticeably (e.g., at the ridiculous resolutions <font...> is often
abused for) encountered them in the wild

Requires a restart for the profile to take effect.


I thought I'd put the correct hoodoo in prefs.js to keep sites from
doing JS window.open() calls for popups, yet I still get them.  What's
the Right Way?

 Mostly useless pseudo-random number: 993                      (75 F)
