Tech help needed!

Okay, I have a really odd problem with livejournal, and it's just on my desktop system at home (Cheetah). Whenever I view Livejournal, the font is really small. (For a few weeks, it was large, now it's small) When I view anything on my own journal, or my friends page, it's miniscule. To the point where it's illegible. I can view the site fine on Sahara (our living room machine) and at work. It's just my personal desktop system that's affected.

I have run spybot, I've reset every setting in IE I can think of... and I'm at a total loss for figuring out what the problem is. It's getting really aggravating. Other sites come up small (around the same size as the main LJ page and other journals), but not so tiny I can't read.

I'm totally perplexed. Someone help? :/

(System is running win2k, IE 6 on Cheetah and Sahara, nearly identical setups. Work is winXP)

Are you sure the language is set correctly? Right click the page, select language - Western European (Windows).

Also, dumb question, tried adjusting the text size in the "View - Text size" menu?

And finally, the internet options... go into it, [Tools, Internet Options] select fonts [in the General tab], see if "Latin Based" is checked.

That's all I can think of.

I know it's set to Latin based, I'll check the rest when I get home. =)

I didn't know about the font size trick under view. Thanks!

You didn't? O.o

Well... Every once in a while, IE will boot up and show smaller or larger fonts. I'm not sure why exactly, but it seems that there's a key combination that triggers it. I know it was around during the IE 3.1 days [Windows 95, when I first started to use the internet]... maybe it still is around, left in by mistake? And maybe you clicked said combination by accident for all we know. I seem to do that all the time.

Anyway, glad I helped. ^-^

Odd. I was just griping about how LJ has suddenly stopped sending me email alerts for comments to my posts (or comments on other journals). Perhaps there's a glitch in their system somewhere...or maybe some wiseacre out there will tell me that I need to change my browser preferences.

I blame gamma rays.

I actually haven't gotten an email for a single one of the replies to this entry.

Although this is a new problem. The font issue's been going on for a few weeks now..

I was reading over the help requests page about the non-delivery of comments and found a pointer to Known Issues that seemed directly applicable:

A number of users have reported that the font size in the S2 Component style is now abnormally large or small. This problem is a known issue and will be resolved as soon as possible.

That may very well answer your question.

Yay! Duncan's my hero!

I'll just use the 'view' trick until it's fixed. =)

No wait, read it again. I'm pretty certain it should have said gamma rays.

Could just be another glitch.
