A day or so ago, I was surprised to see that the font size had suddenly become HUGE on the ArloNet forums. I changed it in Mozilla Firefox to look like it normally does. But then all my other websites weren't readable (font too small). I checked in Internet Explorer, and the same problem occurred. Today at school I had the same oversized font problem. And at the university, too. Any ideas? It's happening no matter what computer I use, and it's in both IE and Firefox. This only occurs on the ArloNet forums.

In Mozilla under extras I think it is you can adjust the letter size.
I like it, cause now I can adjust the text for my poor eyes.

It's been growing on me, too. In my version of Mozilla, though, I can "fix" it by clicking on "view," "zoom" and "zoom out."

Does anyone know the default font for Firefox? I played with changing the font so much trying to "fix" what I thought was wrong, that I have no idea now what the original font was... and it's bugging me (OCD?)

I changed the size by clicking on "zoom only text " (on my version).Then, it's fast with the keyboard: Ctrl- (or Ctrl+ if it's too small)

When I saw this I figured the forum was using 'Boomer Enhanced' size for some of us who might be getting a tad older.

I can't get used to the larger font. Sure hope it goes back to normal. My eyes are having trouble adjusting going back and forth from this large font & webpages with normal fonts...
