I don't know about you, but Flash makes my computers sluggish and web pages that use Flash can take a long time to load.

Firefox Accessibility Themes
Large themes, page zoom buttons, and a theme font and size changer make this a good resource for anyone who wants (or needs) to change the default Firefox to make it readable.

Another resource is the Firefox Large Themes gallery.

'Nuff said. =)
