    Default screen appearance

    Dear Wise Ones:

    Yesterday, suddenly, the Using English site became magnified. Now, I can only view less than a fourth of the display on my screen.
    How can I 'deflate' the display?
    I apologize if this question is answered elsewhere. I have searched to the best of my ability to find the solution, but haven't had success.

    Feeling a bit like Alice underground,

    Petra

    There's no feature on the site that I know of that does that. Which browser are you using?

    Dear Tdol:

    Thank you for your prompt reply.
    I use Firefox. No other site or application has been affected.

    PS: Just before this happened, I was responding to a post which was written in a very large font. Perhaps this has something to do with it??

    Dear Tdol:

    Problem solved!
    I went to
    Firefox: View: Zoom and zoomed out several times. This returned the screen to its original size.

    Thanks again for your attention to this problem,

    Petra

    It could, in which case clearing out the cache might change it back. Do you allow javascript?
