Web Site Font Size


I am browsing the 'net with Mandake 9.0 and Mozilla. I have found that certain web sites load with a font so small that it is impossible to read.

How can I increase the font size on specific sites OR better yet solve this problem for ALL web sites I happen to load.

Take a look at the Appearance section in preferences.

in mozilla: Edit/preferences/appearance/fonts -> set your minimum font size using the drop down menu on the right.

if you're using konqueror in mandrake: Settings/Configure konq/fonts -> set minimum font size.

Thanks for responses,

I went to Preferences > Appearance > Fonts and changed the "minimum" size to 12 [it was None] that should solve the problem.
