Howdy:

Somehow I screwed up the font size of the text I see and write while on LJs. Any computer nerds out there who can tell me how I managed to do that and, more importantly, how I can get back to a font size I can actually see ?

is it just on LJ that you are having the problem or all sites?
On my computer (a Mac) I use “control +” to increase font size or “control -” to decrease.

The control plus and minus also work on a Windows machine, or you can use control 0 (that is a zero) to just return the font to normal size.

Just a side note: a long time ago browsers would have one zoom setting for all sites, but now most can remember the zoom settings for each particular site. So if you accidentally zoomed in on LJ’s, everything else could still appear normal.

You can also hold the ctrl key and then scroll with your mouse wheel to increase and decrease your font size.
