    Hey all,

    New proud owner of a MacBook Pro. However, I'm having a strange time with the fonts on my firefox browser.

    The application fonts are extremely small. And most web pages are illegible until I zoom in or increase the font (each time) which generally screws up the formatting of the page.

    Is there a way to fix this? Is there another browser that is more effective than Firefox? I did a search on the internet but didn't find any information regarding this but I can't be the only one with this problem.

    But maybe the only complaining about it?

    Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Have you tried using Safari? I've never had any problems like you mention.

    in firefox prefs, under 'content' tab you'll find a setting for 'default font size' you can try that to see if it helps :D

    Yeah, same problem with Safari. It's not like I can't read it...but the font is about 8 point on the applications menu, ten point within the page.

    And I've tried the content preferences within Firefox...that helps somewhat, but it puts the page formatting all out of whack, as mentioned.
