Hi,
In Firefox, click Tools--Options
Click the Content tab.
You can change the font size in there. Default size is 16.

No James, I am sorry, I have not yet accepted the answer because I am not able to find Options and Content in Tools of Firefox. Thank you, Silvia

Hi Silvia,

Where did you get stuck?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Sorry, but this problem was never solved, in fact the font size goes huge to tiny continuously, back and forth and I am not able to control it even right now.
Tech Support Specialist: James, Sr. Computer Support Expert replied 8 years ago
You mean it changes by itself?

Relist: I wish your expert could have access to my screen and see what mess I must have caused in the few months I have owned this pc. I am not able to follow the instructions your experts gave me, they are too complicated and too lengthy. Is there any other way to handle this? I believe that Both computer experts have done their best but their answers are more for computer geeks then for a grandma like I am..

Yes, it changes by itself! the courser, totally unexpected seems to pick up a little rectangular icon and carry it with itself and when it does that, the fonts go nuts, huge, tiny, medium, huge again and I don`t know how to stop it nor how it started. Then it settles and this time it settled on HUGE.
Tech Support Specialist: James, Sr. Computer Support Expert replied 8 years ago
This can happen if you hold down the Control key on your keyboard, and then move the scroll wheel on the mouse. Check your keyboard and see if any keys might be stuck in.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
