Check your default Setting - Just checked mine;

Open FF -- Tools / Options / Content Tab - (In the center - Fonts & colors) - Times New Roman - Size 16

Hmmm So some do some dont :confused:

Any chance you can post a link to one that does change a lot in size, up or down.

And what browser FF or IE.

As a trial - have a read of post #5 here (http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6620_102-0.html?threadID=258726) - the section about Accessibility .-- thats for IE. ( check out #7 as well.)

Click on the Advanced button and set the minimum font size there.
