FWIW: My W98 pc uses Firefox 2 and my current sceen settings are 1152 x 864 pixels and TrueColor (32 bits).

When I go to my Home page I find the text size much too small and I have to repeatedly strike View\Font Size\Increase to get a comfortable size. I would <like> to set the font to the size I get when I click Increase to its maximum. I find that text is comfortably large and, more important, it is bolder than the other fonts. How can I learn the <name> of that font?

But, even after getting that preferred font, when I click to a new URL I often find an entirely new font is displayed, frequently way to large … and so I have to go through the View\FontSize\Change process all over again.

Also, I now find my screen often displays <overlapped> versions of some URLs, in large text <and> small text.

My attempts to set the font through Control Panel\Display seems to have made a mess of things and I sure would appreciate some hand-holding here.

Peterm: Thanks so much. I never knew that (and, probably, three dozen other tricks as well)!
