I've been told there are no stupid questions so here goes. Had to upgrade to windows 7 after a massive crash. I prefer Firefox browser and have it set as default. Text size is fine in Internet Explorer but smaller than I like in Foxfire. How can I make font larger without messing up. Also my new monitor, 23 in., shows some web sites in half screen, some in center screen, and some whole screen. I prefer full screen. Can I so something to correct this?

Thanks

Give you a bump and a bit of info.
In Firefox, click on tools, options, content.
There you can allow web pages to choose their own font size or you can select another in "advanced".

I don't think you can choose for websites to use the entire screen. Someone else would need to give you a more technical answer.
