    I noticed weird things on pages I visit frequently.
    I belong to several groups with messege boards.
    Now when I go to post a messege, the box is micro mini
    and I can't see what I am typing there!
    How can I change this?
    I tried the Compatibility View Setting and this didn't
    fix anything.
    Maybe I need to go back to the older IE version....
    Thank you for any help!

    I took a print screen of the way the webpage looks.

    Yeah, try that. Then try opening the website again in compatibility view.

    :eek:
    I did the reinstall.
    I uninstalled it and reinstalled again.
    It sucks.
    Miniature reply boxes on my favorite forum websites.
    Tried the compatability thing and no difference at all.
    The thing is, I want to use it.
    It's pretty fast loading....just these other issues.
    I don't know what to do.
    Guess I'll go back to using Opera and Firefox
