Who else has teeny tiny font when writing a reply?

I am not at reading glass age quite yet but feel like I should be using specs or a magnifying glass to read what written when writing a reply. Is it me or something I can fix? The font becomes normal size when posted.

  1. I'm seeing the tiny font for both replies and original posts. Also in the search box, and I've noticed that the search box does not automatically search "this board" but requires one to be specified or a location.

    1. Yes, I'm getting the micro-font in replies that goes to regular size when posted. Hopefully it's a glitch that will be fixed soon. Meanwhile, as a work-around I compose my replies in a regular word processor, then cut and paste into the micro-font and hit "Post!"

      1. Also seeing the micro-font.
        FF 3.6.9
        Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20100824 Firefox/3.6.9 GTB7.1
        Win XP

        1. There's a problem ticket open on this with Engineering.

            I'm getting huge font. IE8.

            Is no one else seeing the outrageous spacing? All the white space is back ... doubled and tripled.

              No spacing issues here, just micro-font when replying (I'm using Firefox).

              1. re: rworange

                I am NOT seeing any outrageous spacing.

                When typing replies, I see a somewhat larger fixed-pitch courier font, rather than the somewhat smaller variable-pitch font in previously-saved posts. I rather like the new font when typing replies!

                The only thing that is tiny is, when I go to edit a post I have typed (in the previous two hours, as usual), the button for "save" and the word "cancel" next to it are both in teeny tiny font.

                I am using IE8.

                Thanks for the engineering ticket, Jacquilynne. The older we get, the more the font size and even the foot size (and even the sausage) becomes more important.

                The "Save" button is reduced to a tiny sliver of its original height..

              3. It is better for me today. Thanks engineering. I was worried I would have to get my surgical loupes out to read my replies.
