Shrinking! Help. - March 31st 2011, 12:45 AM

So when I hold down the cntrl and scroll in or out you know how it makes your font and your page bigger or smaller? Well I don't want it to be so big so I scroll out and make it smaller but when I do that, my Facebook games go to the side of the page and I can't see all of it! I use Adobe flash player, is there any way I can make the games fit into size for my preferences? How do I fix this?

What you are doing there is zooming. There should be accessibility options in your browser to allow you to override fonts on pages to make them larger.

In Firefox, for example, you would do the following:

1. Under Preferences there is a tab called Content. Click that.
2. Then under the group Fonts and Colors there is a button labeled Advanced. Click it.
3. Then under that dialog there is a checkbox that says, "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above." Uncheck that.

After that you can adjust the fonts on that page to make them larger and hit "OK" on the dialog. Then the fonts on the pages you are looking at should be larger without needing to zoom in on them.

Thanks. I don't use Firefox but I was thinking I should download it. Inter Explorer doesn't work very well I'm learning...

Yeah, Internet Explorer...get off of that! Firefox is really good, Google Chrome is becoming more and more buggy/not as good, and Safari is actually really decent too.

Leave the past behind, just walk away
When it's over, and the heart break
And the cracks begin to show

The problem is not you, it's Facebook. I haven't looked at their HTML, but they probably do it with floating divs, which will move on their own according to how much space you have on your monitor. (That description is a little inaccurate, but it's the basic idea).

Whoever said the thing about the fonts - sorry, too lazy to scroll back up and look - is right. That's your way around it.
