How do I change the font size on a webpage?

Posted

Hi, I had a web page opened on Firefox and then my cat jumped on the keyboard and now that web page is in ridiculously small letters that I can barely read. I closed the browser, but it did not fix the problem. I tried opening the same webpage with Explorer and the font is normal size. On Firefox, the other webpages are normal font size, it is just that one website. Can anyone help? Thank you.

Glad to know my cat isn't the only one jumps on the keyboard :) And glad someone had the answer to get back to the right page size so I can read what's on the screen.

Cat made web page font too small

Use "Ctrl+0" (zero) to restore font to normal size. Hope your cat can't read, but to learn more see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Zoom_text_of_web_page'
