    Up one Pixel

    Would certainly help my aging eyes as well.
    Every day I wake up is a good one

    I "see" the difficulties y'all face

    I fired up Firefox to see what CC looks like in it.

    The font is much larger by default. What's weird is, I can enlarge the font more using the options, but I can't shrink it at all. The default is as small as it will get. Y'all got your work cutout for you trying to please everyone.

    I would use Firefox more but one function on my Dell laptop won't work on it. I use the top "edge" of my touchpad to "page back/forward" by sliding my finger, this doesn't work on Firefox. I'm kind of used to it.

    Good luck on finding the/a solution.

    McDuff, thanks. There is an element of people getting use to the fonts. This was exactly the same problem that we had with the old infopop site when I chose a larger font and everybody complained.

    Cheesecake, I may switch to one pixel higher but am hoping for a bit more feedback. Wise.

    McDuff, here's an atta-boy for clueing me in on how to change font sizes displayed on vbulletin pages. With your tips I finally can see text on these types of boards without going nuts trying to see it! (For the past 3 years I have been running resolutions of 1920x1200 or 1600x1200 and trying to read tiny text )
