    I'm must be hitting some strange key combination / trackpad gesture (I just got a macbook pro) and my font size in safari keeps randomly increasing. This happens on the desktop with the icons as well.

    Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

    Thanks :)

    At least in PCs browsers....

    Hold down simultaneously both buttons:

    CTRL + to enlarge font size


    CTRL - to decrease font size

    There is also a multi-touch gesture for resizing fonts. I don't remember what it is on a mac off the top of my head (I have yet to buy my first MBP) but the synaptics pads I have it's a two finger diagonal pinch or stretch to decrease or increase the font accordingly.

    are you pinch zooming with two fingers? like on the iphone that will increase/decrease the size of icons on the desktop... not sure about safari though.
