If anyone out there can help me with this dilemma, I would greatly appreciate it. I was moderating in Religion when my 5 pound dog decided to climb onto my Dell Netbook, and his paws hit some keys that decreased the font size to miniscule. What is odd is that if i go onto aol or facebook, the font size it normal; it's just on here, (city-data) where the font is so small that I feel as though I need a magnifying glass in order to moderate. Am therefore assuming that it is something within the system here....? --As well, I can't get back to aol unless I turn the Nebook off and then power back on...(Have lost the "bar" across the top of page that I'd usually use to switch back and forth.)

Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help and restore me to regular font size!!!

~June

Thanks Marka. Just tried what you recommended,and will see if that restores fornt size. Mysterious thing is that I no longer think it is the cd system, as I am typing this from Internet Explorer, and the font is fine. Whatever keys the little dog pressed on obvioiusly did something to mozilla, which is what I always use....But will try your suggestion. Thakns again!

The problem is that I can no longer log on via Firefox, which (I would imagine) means downloading a new one all over again, which I haven't a clue as to how to do. My son will be home later on tonight, so in all likelihood he could get me a "new" Mozilla/Firefox....The perils of being a middle aged non-technical female! What a dope I am!

Most problems with Firefox can be corrected without uninstalling and re-installing the software itself. You may want to make sure you have the latest version and may need an update but that in and of itself is not what is not allowing you to log on.

What's happening when you try to log on?

I had used Firefox successfully for a couple of years when all of a sudden it stopped connecting me to the internet. I uninstalled it and downloaded it again, but the same problem persisted. So now I just use Internet Explorer. I too am frustrated by my lack of computer savvy. And here I thought one of the requirements to be a moderator was being a computer genius!

When trying to log on via Firefox it just won't let me....Comes up with some kind of "problem" on the screen, and even if I click on the Mozilla icon, it will bring me up to google, but there is no bar up above where I can type in "aol" or "city-data" which means I have to power down the Netbookk all over again in order to get to IE. I honestly think at tihs point that I am a hopelesss case until computer-savvy 24 year old son gets home later on tonight.

Clearly June needs a good computer course! --Either that, or keep the dog away from her and computer at all costs! It was just a freak thing that he climbed onto my lap, and paws hit a bunch of keys.

--But thanks, scirocco!!!

Peace June, first question is what operating system are you using? If you are using W98 or later it is easy to do a system restore, which should undo whatever the doggie did.. Go to the Start button in the lower left corner. Go to run and type in MSCONFIG click run. You should see system restore somewhere in the box. If you don't click the tab that says tools and it should be hiding there. When system restore opens , follow the prompts to a day before bow-wow ordered pizzas online.
