    For some reason, the fonts on many web pages (this one included) are showing up rather large. Larger than I remember. I'm sure that there is a browser setting that will get rid of this, but I can't seem to find it.

    Thanks.

    One thing to keep in mind if your Font sizes seem to be changing for no reason AND you have a scroll/wheel mouse; if you hold down the Ctrl key and scroll the wheel on the mouse, it will change your font size, too>

    I have a Logitech Scroll Mouse. I have installed its drivers properly from its CD.

    But I am not able to do what you said. I mean, Ctrl + scroll doesn't change the font size. It just scrolls the page. Am I doing anything wrong?

    Actually until now I assumed it worked with all scroll/wheel mice. After I saw your question I did a little Google searching here and after much reading have discovered that NOT all mouse drivers support this function (Per Andres Kaestner in one of the post on Google).
    One interesting note thought in the search I linked you too there is a post from an Intellimouse user who it does work for....Go figure.....Sorry if I misled you, but I learned something, too!
