Have you ever had the problem of not being able to see something on IE or mozilla firefox? Ever wished you knew how to zoom in quickly and easily. Well now you can! If you have a mouse with a roller ball just hold CTRL down and roll the ball in the direction you want. One way zooms the other shrinks. I hope this help everybody!

Good tip CGM.
I'll point out that you have to set this up in Mozilla tho. You can see how to do that here.

Ehh, I done done this tip :thumbsup: --but I put it in Internet Tips. Glad you put it here tho cause it works outside your browser too.

And do not forget that ^+ increases print size and ^- decreases print size

No, hey, don't be sorry cgm, it is a good tip and it needs to be in the Windows Tips forum. I just wanted to point out that it has to be set up in Mozilla and I'm too lazy to type how out again. That's all.

I think it works in most word processor apps and most things where you enter text, like email. Other text, like help files it might not.

Yes, thanks Papakid,
The set-up for the font size works for my Mozilla 1.7. I thought I'd lost that feature when I switched to Mozilla. Not that I need a bigger font or anything like that :thumbsup: :trumpet: I guess I should really start clicking around more in the Mozilla.


:flowers:

Yep, on the full Mozilla--now at version 1.7.1--you have to. I've never used the Firefox standalone browser and didn't know scrolling for different font sizes was already set up. Thanks for pointing that out. :thumbsup:

The firefox browser works great! Yes it is already set up. I like the firefox broswer. It loads the text before the pics so the page loads faster. At least the words do. You can be reading while the pics load.

Hiya CGM~ I debated with myself before I updated my mozilla to 1.7. I almost got the firefox instead but decided to not to switch. Maybe the next up-grade will convince me to try Mozilla Firefox.

Well its a good browser. I have never tried mozilla. I used to use IE 6.0 but now i am forced to use both for now. Firefox wont get my toolbars yet. I want some toolbars but they are in themaking for Firefox so i have to use both. You would like it anybody would. Heres a link to the download page:
