Hit [Ctrl][-] a couple of times (the control key and the minus-sign key simultaneously).

Go to lower right where the window’s size is stated e.g. 100% and click it open and custom set it to 25%. Text is readable.

Umm, that changes ALL browser text. The only text with a problem is the body of forum posts. All other text is normal.

Someone fat-fingered a .CSS file. :)

CTRL and scroll will do the same thing, scroll one way to enlarge, the other way to reduce size. ‘course if you don’t have a scroll wheel on your mouse, that’s another story.

It’s because you aren’t using one of those amazing Mac computers that never have any problems, don’t get viruses, can read your mind, always do everything you want, don’t ever need upgrades, and will baby-sit your children for the weekend in a pinch if you have to fly off to Paris with the new graphic-designer lover you met at Starbucks yesterday.

Or....

Its because you are using Windows which does everything wrong all the time, never works, is loaded with spyware, bloatware, toe fungus and was intentionally designed to wreak havoc in the lives of decent people everywhere. You need to to switch to the Linux OS and run it on a Zipperon XXX-44-G motherboard running a 6 trillion Jigawatt Acceleronerex CPU, and whatever you do don’t pay for the extended warranty.

Not having your VERY LARGE font problem, but several times now I have had a scrolling problem in which I can only scroll about a third of the way down the list of topics or posts in any forum.

In addition the key topics on the right column do not show up.

Anyone encounter that?

I see! I was doing it wrong.

I've been trying to spin my control key and press the wheel on my mouse. I've gone through nearly all my spare keyboards. Sure glad you cleared that up! ;)

(P.S. For those who didn't catch it, an earlier post on this thread from JimRob makes it clear that it was an oops on his part that caused the temporary wierdness)
