Display problem in Answers only?

Hi, my 3 year old grandson was mucking about on the keyboard while I was on Yahoo Answers this afternoon. Somehow, he managed to shrink the screen (just the answers panel) so small I cannot read it! This is ONLY on Answers, and only on Yahoo. All other sites are fine, as are other areas in Yahoo, such as mail and news.

I cannot find just how he managed to do this, and cannot find a way in settings or anywhere else to fix the problem.

Has anyone seen this, know what has happened, or how to correct it?

I am currently using my 2nd. computer. My browser is Firefox 12. Any working suggestions would be appreciated!

    On the web page in question, hold down the CTRL Key and then, spin your mouse's scroll wheel up and down.

    Had a similar problem once. These 3 y.o. certainly get some good training before they are set free on us. My solution was to let the lad have another session and sure enough by the time he finished it was all back to normal. Figured I didn't have much to loose. Still don't know what he did in the first place or even how he fixed it but it does work! Science, ain't he marvelous, and only 3.

    Good Luck

    Sounds to me like your browser has had its text size altered (this will only affect sections of websites not controlled by style sheets) so this is feasible, just go into the menu's for FF and look at changing the text size.

    If it's on Firefox, try using (Ctrl)+(0), and see if that helps.
