I know this is silly, but I have to ask

    Does anyone know why when I go to certain websites the fonts are just gigantic?

    One those sites in the blog site for PF. I can't read anything. The fonts get so big that it goes over the other lines, and those lines go over other lines, and so on...

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Good one. :biggrin:

    In fact, it looks much worse than that.

    If you have a wheel on the mouse, hold down the Ctrl key and roll the mouse wheel. IIRC, forward shrinks, and backward enlarges. Depends on the html coding I guess.

    If this font is too small to read your problem should be fixed

    Or, if you are using firefox and don't have a mouse wheel, Ctrl + and Ctrl - can be used to zoom in and out.

    Some of the best one liners I've ever seen on this forum were by chroot. You have no idea how funny he can be.

    Not just one liners, either. He's a master of extended, dead-pan, tongue-in-cheek composition as well, as witnessed by his contributions to the famous mouse-trap thread.

    This site is fine, and yes I can read it regardless.

    Since I never really visited other sites, I never bothered. But lately I have been browsing the wild wide web and everything is so BIG! :surprised

    It's all good now. Thanks everyone. :biggrin:

    That's another good one I didn't know about. Handy when you're using the pad instead of a mouse on the laptop.
