enlarging text

Posted

Hi, I just updated the latest version of firefox yesturday, there wasnt any problems but, theres only one little thing that has been bothering me since then. In the previous version, I had the text size of certain website enlarged. Whenever I went to those webpages they were already the text size I wanted, but now everytime I go to them, the text is small and I have to do the "ctrl+" everytime. Ive even tried saying them in my bookmarks with the enlarged text and they still return to the small text everytime I return to them. It gets really annoying, before this never happened. It seemed like firefox remembered these settings before and now with the new version, it doesn't. Help! Its getting really annoying, should I simply go back to the old version? or is there another solution? Thanks! gaby

Additional System Details

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

This started when...

since i downloaded the latest version (which was yesturday)
