fonts too small

I've been using linux for a couple of months now. I'm using Suse 9.0, and the fonts are too small for almost everything. I've changed the size in the control center, but nothing seems to work. Can someone please help.

Are you sure that when you change the system fonts or other fonts size form the control center you Apply the changes....try to make changes and to restart the X...logout and the back on...

Yes, I do apply. Sometimes it will work for a few days, then it seems to default back to the original size. Another thing I've noticed is when I do change the fonts, it works for everything except my web browsers. They're the same size everytime I open them.
