    I just got the new MacBook and I accidentally hit something, and now the font on all my web pages appear bigger. How can I get it back to normal size?

    In Firefox you use Apple key and minus to make text smaller and Apple key and plus to make it bigger.

    Depends on the browser there's different settings, some even use a keycombination plus the scroll.

    In Firefox you can easily go back to normal font by selecting (from menu) View > Zoom > Reset

    From Safari it's again under View.

    You won't hurt anything by looking around the menu items. Sometimes the answer is in plain site.

    I'll bet you accidently did the pinch on the trackpad. I did it a few times too. Try pinching your fingers closed on the trackpad and see if it fixes it.
