Turning Off FractionBox[ ] Globally?

When I display output -- e.g., expressions in Tables and other output --
on screen or as print output, or even when I put in Input expressions, I
don't want FractionBox[ ] to operate  *at all*  (the shift to smaller fonts
looks really ugly, and it takes up more screen space in some cases).
Is there some simple way to turn it off globally, in a given notebook?

(And while we're on formatting, is there a way to set the number of
digits in output numbers globally, so that 5.67894 X 10^17 and similar
numbers will come out at 5.68 or even just 5.7 X 10^17?)
