Default DTP Icon to Safari

Since this forum looks much better in Safari, but for most purposes, I want Firefox as my default browser, is there some way for me to have a desktop DTP icon using Safari, but otherwise FF as my default?

Yes, I have DTP as my home page in Safari, but of course I have the Safari icon, not the DTP one, on the desktop. I like having reminders along the way for just about everything.

There's no problem with that at all: just download and instal the Safari (beta); it doesn't affect your previous settings. Like you, I chose FireFox as my regular browser, and just have Safari to try out.

Safari does work better insofar as it reveals a much wider Quick Reply window here, but it compensates for that by making the text much smaller than I like.

Change your Preferences > Appearance > Standard Font.

And is type too small? I believe the Mac version ships with type set to 16; I keep mine at 14, unless I am designing a web page, when I restore the default so I can get an idea of what others are likely to see.

In Safari, yes, and not only in this forum. I have now set the text to 14 (points, i suppose), but it doesn't make any difference. I can, of course, change the viewing size every time, but that's not very convenient.

If it weren't for the keyhole-size reply window in this forum, I shouldn't even have looked at Safari. FireFox is enough for me, but I have to keep Internet Explorer too, though I don't use it often.
