Default Fonts all gone small

My laptop freaked out this morning so I switched it off and rebooted it, now the font on all the sites I am visiting is tiny!!! like size 8 - how do I change it?

If you have a wheel mouse, hold down ctrl and use the scroll wheel to find a size you're comfortable with.

Otherwise ctrl and the plus key increases, ctrl and minus decreases

Just give it a hard kick...which is what I thought was meant by re-booting.

The Ctrl (Control) button is on the keyboard.

The wheel on the mouse is fairly obvious

I presume you're using interent explorer as a browser (Blue e as an icon). If so go to the view drop down menu, then down to text size, another menu pops up to the side and you can pick the size you want.

On my screen bottom right of the page is an icon of a magnifying glass with 100% beside it.
If I double click it goes up to 125 then 150 and so on. It works for me.

That control scrolling is the biggest pain in the nuts, well I've got a MX Revolution mouse which scrolls like a beast....anyone figured out how to disable it for FF?

Jam matchsticks between the scroll button and the mouse casing until the wheel jams and it will scroll no more.
