AOL upgrade messed up font size on webpages

Hope I can get some help here as AOL seems to not want to answer the question as to why the fonts are so large on webpages after I did an aOL upgrade that popped up on my computer. Ever since the upgrade, the lettering on certain webpages like ebay among others is huge. I want to go back to what it was before I updated. I have tried live tech support...seems like no one is there, called them...phone rings and rings and no answer, emailed twice and no emails back. Can anyone tell me why this has happened and how I can fix it. The large lettering on the webpages is really annoying. The weird part is that it's not all websites. I have AOL 9.0
Thanks ahead of time.

No one with knowledge of AOL is helping, so I'll give it a shot. Open a webpage, go to Tools>Internet options, look at the accessability settings for web pages. Also go to View>Font sizes and see what those are set to. Let us know if it helps.

Thanks Tyger...you really got me to thinking on this one. I had gone through all the settings on AOL before and there was no way to change the text size so you got me to thinking about going to Internet Explorer...sure enough that AOL update screwed things up even on IE as the fonts were large on that also so I went to View and changed the text size....perfect. Now that I had that fixed, I still couldn't figure out why when on AOL the text was still huge so back to IE...seems as if that upgrade also changed AOL to my default browser. As soon as I changed my default back to IE, the websites on IE and AOL are perfect. Thanks so much for your help....you really made my day as that text size was drving me crazy.
