Does anyone know a way to make the text just a bit bigger on web pages. Specifically the LH forums. I got my new 21" monitor and while it is fantastic at 1680x1050 the text is just a hair small on the LH forums for me to read with out straining my eyes.

Icons and text on my desktop all seem to be ok.

For the record.. VIEW => Text size in internet explorer works on pages like MSN but not here at LH forums

Small problem with Firefox, when I increase text size it shifts everything right. The page no longer lines up..

Black background is so much better than crappy white..

I'll try and show you what mine is doing when I get home.

Ctrl+= will make browser text larger, but just for the window or tab you're looking at. Works great in both IE7 and Firefox.

er... well, it works in Firefox. Firefox's formatting gets all funky when you use it.
