    Hi the fonts in my yahoo email keep changing size when I accidentally roll the scroller on my mouse button up and down. I have tried to change the size by logging out but it didn't work. I have tried to keep rolling the mouse and that isn't working either. I would like to set it so it won't change the fonts like that. Right now the font is so tiny I can't even read it. I hope someone will have a fix for me. thanks

    Hi Sharrono, welcome to EQ. :)

    When on the Yahoo mail page press Ctrl 0 (zero). That will reset the page's font size to normal.

    I suspect your ctrl key is stuck. In most browsers pressing ctrl and scrolling increases and decreases font for people with impaired eyesight.

    I didn't think I would ever be able to fix this. I have been trying over and over for days and days......just goes to show how computer illiterate I am.....and to think it is such a simple little thing, but frustrating!!!!!
    THANK YOU Big Dan!!!!! I really appreciate your help!

    Hi Dan,

    Google search has led me to your post. A friend of mine has a similar font issue in Yahoo Mail in Firefox v21. The moment she types a letter, the text in the email goes to size 36 using Firefox. I wonder why there is no font issue in Yahoo Mail with Internet Explorer on the same machine.

    I will definitely try your solution after work today. Thanks.
