Updated to Firefox 3.6.9. The font size on this (url below) test site displays too large. I coded 10pt FF shows 12-14? I checked the tools-options on my FF, and matched those setings to another computer using FF 3.6.8 (which everything looks good on 3.6.8). Tested on Mac w/Safari, FF 3.6.8 and Opera - all consistant. On PC Win 7 - great on Chrome, IE8. Tested IE 6, IE 7 both fine but FF too large.

I am ready to write a CSS style sheet for it, but what is the statement (see below) I use for Firefox? Does anyone know?

<!--[if IE 6]>
<link href="css/sitestyle-cc-ie6.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<![endif]-->


Never had this before FF was always the default rock solid browser (slight increase, but nothing unbearable.) Thank you for any help!

Did you try doing a View > Zoom > Reset (or simply Ctrl+0)?

I would suggest the same as alias because I just had a peep and it looks ok to me and I'm using FF 3.6.9

I compared it to some of my pages of the same font size and they match. Keep in mind too that FF remembers the font size you view a page at and will maintain that size even after PC reboot so just try resetting it in case you had increased it at some point to view it larger.

Check the dpi that your windows fonts are set at too - I know how this can make browsers display text inconsistently (usually IE is affected though and not other browsers)

Thank you. I did reset prior to posting. But still see the font large. (Just did reset, again, no change.) If I change the css styling to a smaller font it displays properly. If I create a style sheet for Firefox what do I use for the "and if" variable?

Personally I think creating a separate CSS for FF is overkill, FF is a standards compliant browser and I don't think it would have problems with something as basic as font size, even after an upgrade.

I'm convinced there is a setting within your own browser causing the grief. Have you cleared your browser cache completely after resetting...you could be viewing the cached version.

Thank you - it seemed overkill to me, too. I cleared the cache. A time to let it go.Thanks for everyone's help!
