    font size help

    I was in the forum and the font size went to real tiny and I do not know how to get it back. It is only bikeforum this has happened to. I am using Firefox. I open bike forums in IE and no problem. In Firefox all other sites are fine just BF isthe tiny font size.
    Whats going on, anyone?

    If you're using a Mac (like me ) press the Apple key and the + key. Repeat as needed to get the size you want.

    Another cool Mac trick is hold down the control key and use your mouse's scroll wheel, the whole screen will increase/decrease magnification. I don't know if there's an equivalent function on windows (and I certainly don't want to start an OS war...).

    If it doesn't work, check the settings in the Universal Access pref panel.

    Just remember that to hit +, you also need to press the shift key.

    So on a PC, CTRL-SHIFT-+ will enlarge the font, keep holding CTRL-SHIFT and tapping + will make it increasingly larger.

    CTRL - (no shift) will make it smaller, holding CTRL and tapping - repeatedly will make it increasingly smaller.

    Sorry, that was an encrypted penis enlargement ad, not a weight loss ad.

    Hehe, I just learned I could do it without the shift key as well. Which means it's CTRL = as you have to hit shift to get the +

    For some reason I rarely use my NUM pad, I guess I'm not a NUM nut!
