    Some web sites are written to accommodate only certain text size(s). To override it in IE: tools/internet options/accessibility/ignore font sizes specified on web pages. Use cont/mouse wheel to change font size. You can get it even larger this way. Note: You may get a bit of distortion but I've found it not to be a problem.

    Or, if you want to change the font-size permanently to your preference, you can modify the user style sheets in Firefox. Use the !important flag to make your style override (almost) any author style sheets referenced by the webpages you visit.

    This is slightly advanced, but you should only need to do it once:

    Bronson7, That was a great tip.

    I knew how to use the scroll wheel to change font size but I was resigned to the fact that it didn't work on all websites. It does now thanks to that tip.
