....where can you change the font size in the new setup....

Try holding the control key while you press the 0 (that's the zero above the "p" key). That should reset your text size to the default, at least in Firefox and Internet Explorer 7 (maybe others, not sure).

It sounds like you have "zoom" set, perhaps accidentally. You can zoom larger with control and +
and zoom smaller with control and - .


Thanks for the suggestion of "control" & "0", azw -- but it didn't change a thing. It is still very small print on the normal setting. However using "control" & "+" does give me a much easier size font to read. Thanks! I wasn't aware that would work.

I used to have the small font problem on an old work machine
that had a crazy high resolution monitor. What I did was go to
Firefox's Options, and hit the "Content" tab. In the section for
Fonts & Colors, click the "Advanced..." button. In that window
should be a drop down box labeled "Minimum font size", which
is probably set to "None". If you set this, it overrides any font
that's smaller than the font size you put in. Great for high
resolution screens and presbyopics, too!

(Caveat: setting a minimum font size might make some websites
look really funny because they were designed by people who
foolishly assume a fixed font size...)

AH! That solved the problem perfectly. Changing the minimum font from "none" to 10 worked. Many thanks, fearfaoin! :)

Dale, if you're not comfortable changing the code I could do it for you. This links thing is really bugging me... :)
