When I enable Large Text in a GNOME/Wayland desktop session it works in most applications. In GNOME Web it's a bit different:

I get around this in Mozilla-based browsers by setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx which embiggers everything (ref. https://superuser.com/a/1268867)

In GNOME Web there's a GUI tool to zoom in which has the same effect, but the effect does not persist and does not get applied to all tabs/sites. How can I make it persistent and universal?


There is a direct equivalent for GNOME Web:

  • Open the dconf editor
  • Navigate to org/gnome/epiphany/web/default-zoom-level
  • Set the value (for example 1.25)

Setting the default zoom level in dconf editor
