Using Mozilla to access : http://sanfrancisco.giants.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20100808&content_id=13187930¬ebook_id=13187982&vkey=notebook_sf&fext=.jsp&c_id=sf the right side text overlaps and is not readable. However in IE, the same page displays normally. How can I get Mozilla to display all website landing pages to display one line of text per line?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

Reset the page zoom on websites that look wrong: "View > Zoom > Reset" (Ctr + 0 (zero))

See http://kb.mozillazine.org/Zoom_text_of_web_pages
See Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages and Font size and zoom - increase the size of web pages and Change the fonts and colors websites use

If you increased the minimum font size then try a lower setting (default is none) as a too high value can cause issues like you described.

Thank you for the advice. Works like a gem now. Text is a little small but at least I can still read it and click on hyperlinks as needed! Much appreciated!
