    Suddenly I have very small print


    This started a few days ago. It suddenly jumped to small print and I haven't been able to get a decent font size since. Changing the font size in Preferences doesn't seem to work. Only this site is affected as far as I can see.

    This may be connected with another odd thing that I have noticed. When I view the site as a guest nowadays, it seems to be downl;oading forever. I have a full display (in this silly small print) but Firefox still seems to be trying to download something extra.

    As soon as I log in, this stops, so it must be one of your advertisers causing the problem.

    Cntrl then + simultaneously while here does not enlarge everything Hazel?

    You'd have a fit using my 4 inch Android Tablet on this forum. I forget if you got another monitor out of the bin with the printer.
    Maybe Monitor settings are futzed?

    Edit: sigh. Missed the part that only this site is the culprit.
    My bad.

    ctrl+ works! Thanks, Roky, that solves the problem. The odd thing is that setting a font size in Edit/Preferences should also work and does on other sites, but not on this one. And the apparent attempt to download something large and invisible when I'm not logged in continues. I hope it's nothing sinister.

    I don't believe it's anything to worry about. I've noticed some new ad placement when not logged in, so I think it's just a work in progress right now.
    The same thing happened to me last night, but not when I logged in just now.

    Did your browser update? It has to be something in your browser, I think, because I've noticed nothing different. Although it does take an inordinate amount of time for the forum to load. I don't know if it's server load or what, but it's exasperatingly slow.
