You can set some variables in the file that is located in the root directory of phpmyadmin.

to change the timeout value simply add $cfg['LoginCookieValidity'] = 1400.
1400 is in seconds.

Font family can be set by the variable: $cfg['FontFamily']

A list of all possible variables can be found over here:

Hope this helps

but how would I define font size in font family?
Raymond van den BedumCommented:
You can add some custom css to the original theme or any other theme your using.
These file's are locates int the themes/themename/css some config variables can be found in themes/themename/

in themes/themename/css/common.css.php can the font-size declarations found.

Hope this helps
