    You may have pressed Control/Command + inadvertently and increased the page zoom. Press Command/Control 0 and see if that fixes it. Otterwise, provide a link so we can check.

    Create a test page that shows this behavior and post the code here, so we can try it.

    In your browser you can change the character size. In FF for example you can set a default character set and size, and with CTRL+ and CTRL- you can increase and decrease the font size in the page you're viewing.

    Those settings might be different in the two browsers you're using, and if the site isn't able to manage different character sizes, the layout might get messed up.

    OK, thanks for the link.

    The site looks identical in Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and IE9 (those were the ones I tested).

    There's no font declaration on line 134 (that I can see), but I also don't see the point of disabling it, anyhow. Your users will never do that.

    Why are you suggesting disabling fonts?

    Code CSS:
    body{font-size:14px;}

    It's usually a good idea to set a font size on the body, I find, but I usually set it to 100%. It's better not to use px, as that's not as accessible. Anyhow, I'm not sure where you have put that 14px. I can't see it.
