My forum pages have grown!!

Seriously, my forum pages, but only the pages, have suddenly increased their font size from their normal 10 to around 14 or 16. Everything else around the screen: bookmarks sidebar, tabs, browser toolbars etc. etc. remain normal.
I've tried looking for a way of changing it back to where I want it, such as "view" or "options" and changing a few font size values, but it refuses to change, further, I don't know what happened to change to a larger size. Probably that damned cat again!!...bless her.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

If you get sorted Peter but still don't like the layout then vote for the makeover here. Smiley

Re: My forum pages have grown!!

@Petlew - didn't you used to use the custom CSS for the forums?
Or, have you used Stylish to alter the layout.
I know I have...

Re: My forum pages have grown!!

Petlew hangs head in sheepish shame...
In Firefox "view" there three zoom options:
Zoom+
Zoom-
Zoom text only
What I didn't realise was that the "zoom text only" is a toggle on/off. When its toggled "on" it simply alters the text size when the zoom + or - is clicked. This doesn't alter the size of avatars etc. or the headings, just the text in the window.
I have to admit I was rather hoping this thread would quietly fall off the bottom of the list into obscurity.
In fact I proudly say that I found this out all on my own. However I must castigate Firefox since this is not obvious in the view menu as the Zoom's are quite widely separated.
But thank you for your concern anyway James.

Hehe - at least I remembered your browser choice correctly. Smiley
I didn't know about that option either - I've ticked it now so it can confuse me in a few months. Cheesy

Some forums zoom ok  I.E. PN, others get screwed up , two below
Some Web pages the text alters but keep the original page size, with blanks at the side, some go to full screen, and if you zoom a forum, it doesnt carry over to a web page

Re: My forum pages have grown!!

If that was to me  yes all that does is return to standard, it doesnt stop the page getting screwed up when enlarged text is used, nor does it make a narrow page expand to fill the screen
try enlarging the script on Kitz for one that gets screwed up
