    Issues with FireFox

    I usually surf with Mozilla Firefox but have had problems for a few days now with extremely small fonts which I can't read. This only occurs for Bike Forums, all other websites appear as usual. With Internet Explorer there isn't a problem with any of them, but Firefox is my default browser and I'd like to keep it that way. Its possible this problem was caused by an inadvertant keystroke, but its confusing because it only happened to Firefox. Any ideas how to fix it? Thanks.

    Check your preferences in Firefox and see if you've accidentally changed anything. I use Firefox as well as several other browsers, Safari, Opera, IE and Chrome to monitor the rendering of the page, and have no issues currently with any of them. I use a no star account that I don't post with to do so, as well, rather than my Admin Account.

    Also, check if you've accidentally changes your preferences for the forums, themselves. If you can't find an issue, PM or email me at tom@bikeforums.net to get me directly and I'll check a few other possibilities in the AdminCP.

    Tom,

    Thanks for your suggestions. I was able to restore the font size by going to View on the Firefox toolbar and then choosing "zoom". I did this 3 times and now the Bike Forums pages look like they did before. I still don't know what caused the problem, or why it only happened on Bike Forums, but I do know how to fix it if it happens again. Thank you again for your help.

    Ray

    Not a problem at all, glad to help. What likely happened is you initially shrank it with an accidental keyboard shortcut command.
