Default How to set a universal "minimum font size" in FIrefox 2.0.20

My eyes are starting to go and I need bifocals that won't be ready for
at least a week. I'm constantly hitting the "increase font size" key
combo on certain web sites such as www.ficwad.com that seem to ignore
my "minimum font size" setting in Firefox.
It doesn't seem as bad in firefox 3, but I'm frequently doing other
stuff on the newer computer and taking a break to use the web for
entertainment purposes like reading fanfics on my old computer so I
don't have to close browser windows to free up memory on the newer

Is there anything I can set in "about:config" to make the minimum font
size universal so I can stop squinting? I don't care if making the
type larger ruins the nifty layout, it's useless if I can't read it
and I don't want to strain my eyes any more than they already are
squnting at the tiny type. I'm already going blind, so I'm trying to
compensate for it.

Here's an idea of what I've already tried, and I apologize if there is
an appopriate forum for Firefox 2 still active. I've only been able to
find forums for the newest versions of Firefox, and upgrading on a
win9x system is out of the question.
