    Hi,

    Has anyone ever seen this before or more importantly does anyone know how to solve it?



    The size changes so it goes really small or really large, it does it every couple of minutes now and is getting very annoying.
    The only way i can get back to normal is to open a new tab and and close the old one

    HELP!!!!

    Ctrl + mouse wheel changes the size, have you inadvertently done this?

    Have you got scrollable mouse?

    As a test, hold down the Control Key (Ctrl) and at the same time, scroll up or down... What you'll see is your screen zooming in (if you scroll up) and out if you scroll downwards...

    It could be your problem? Not sure... A stab in the dark shall we say...

    thanks for the quick responses

    i have just tested it and it does indeed scroll in and out! well i never knew that, the trouble is that when it does do it, my fingers are no where near the ctrl keys.
    I'm on a laptop with a mouse pad and the scroll part built in on the left, is it likely that that is at fault, or my keyboard?

    Thanks again for the answers, at least i know how to get it back to normal now!!

    Never seen that before..looks like someones drawn over your address bar in black..

    Could be a graphics cards issue..I had a similar problem once when it blacked out the whole of the address box.

    Quite surprised a mod hasn't given you a slap on the wrist for that double post Zampa. Usually you get them quoting the rules at you..... want to have you banned from the site...... wanna come round and kick your dog and scratch your car. ;)
