how to fix font size for a shrunken webpage? please read on . . .

I have Ubuntu 14.04
Recently I was on Craigslist when my 7 month old smacked the keyboard somewhere on the bottom left corner. It shrunk the font down to like quarter size, it's so teeny I can just barely read it if I lean REALLY close . . . Does anyone know how to fix it. It doesn't do it if I change areas on Craigslist, only where I was when she hit it, which is really irritating because that's the area I use!. And it's ALL categories in that area! Even the pictures are small now. It's been this way for a month and it's driving me nuts because I use it all the time, can anyone help?

If you are using firefox you can zoom in and out by holding down ctrl and turning the mouse wheel or by holding ctrl and pressing + or -.
Ctrl-0 resets the zoom...
