I believe changing the font size for a web browser is a temporary setting. It will never remain when you end your web browsing session. I think that option is there for rare occurances when a website does not display correctly, or fonts are outragously a strange size. If you have trouble reading text, try lowering your screen resolution, and or adjusting the DPI of your display. By defualt for windows it is 96dpi. maybe try 128 and see if that helps you.
