Small Fonts

I am sorry to ask such a basic question, but I don't know what else to do. I am working with Suse Linux 8.2 and I can't read the damn screen. The fonts are miniscule. Every time I open a web broswer (Mozilla), I have to increase the font size, but then when I open the browser again, it's reset to the same small fonts and zoom size again. This is happening on any number of applications.

I have gone into the control center and all the fonts are set at least 14 in size, which in Windows means they are huge. Yet in Linux I am squinting before my screen. I've got to figure out a way to fix this otherwise I can't put in all the effort I want to to learn this O/S.

Thanks for your help.
