IOV works perfectly at the home computer, but for some reason it seems to use tiny text (maybe a different font altogether).

I tried changing the fonts and enabled the pages to select their own font but it's still awkward looking.

Believe it or not it's pretty much the sole reason I don't use Firefox at work.

Here's a screenshot so you can see what I mean:




Here's a screen of what it looks like in IE:


Any suggestions?

Can you post links to full size versions of your screen cap? I don't see the issue here.

have you tried ctrl+ in firefox to increase text size?

Also, IE can use cleartype for html - firefox doesn't (unless enabled for whole system).

Yeah, the pics I put up distorted a bit. The Firefox font looks almost bold in the picture, but in actuality it's super thin.

I've tried CTRL+ and playing with the font options, but nothing works.

The font is even weird on search engines (Yahoo, Google), so it's entirely possible it may be the monitor or graphics card, because it works fine at the house.

I bet you its cleartype then. IE7 has it enabled by default, even if it isn't enabled on the system. Turn cleartype on using the ms cleartype tuner (web or powertoy) and firefox will look better.

Hey Drewsky, sorry for the noob question, but how do I go about doing this?

Edit: Nevermind, I got it. You were right, as usual. No idea why I waited so long.
