    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

    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 - the section about Accessibility .-- thats for IE. ( check out #7 as well.)

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