    Large Fonts in FireFox

    I installed ubuntu 8.x and it went fine. When I go to some sites like this one and amazon com firefox puts extra large fonts at the top of screen , it gets fixed toward bottom of screen. Some sites are working good like ebay and drudgereport.
    thanks in advance for advise or fix

    If nobody knows how to fix it, does anybody know what causes it?

    Suggestion: Try a ctrl + + or a ctrl + -
    That will increase or decrease text size.

    Or try installing the no-squint addon. A screenshot of your issue would be helpful.

    Cool Re: Large Fonts in FireFox

    I think it is the banner of the page , and it comes up in gigantic size letters off the screen. Some kind of particular html or script that the new version of Unbuntu is not working with correctly??

    Open firefox then click edit/Preferences/Content/ then change your font and font size from there as you like and also click advance and try to tick (allow page to choose......)hope this helps.
