Why is the Font HUGE?

As of yesterday, size of every aspect of this webpage became huge. I have a 22" monitor and I can only see 2 columns at a time of the forum listings.

Attached is a screenshot.

Ah! Looks like you got a free subscription to the blind-as-a-bat version of TFL!

That didn't happen on our side. Did you change anything in your browser? Check to see if your text size option has changed from a normal size to "gargantuan". In both IE and Firefox, it's under View->Text size. Other browsers should have something similar.

Also check to see if you are using the "vbulletin 3 -- variable fonts" skin found in a pull down menu at the bottom of any TFL page.

Another possibility...

If, for some reason, you held down the Ctrl key on your keyboard and turned the mouse wheel, it will change the size of the text on your monitor. I've had that happen a time or two. Kind of irritating.

Just hold down the Ctrl key and turn the mouse wheel the other way to make it go back to normal.
Did you know that there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?

This is the only website this is happening on for me. I'm using Firefox 3.0.11 and the skin is the default vBulletin 3. I don't have a wheel mouse either.

I did CTRL- several times and that works, I'll see if it sticks.

Ctrl + 0 (zero) resets your zoom in Firefox. Try that if it happens again.
