    Well it only took me just over a week to figure this one out.

    I was sick of not being able to read the text in a web page and having to constantly keep zooming in. Found out how to change that.

    I opened the browser, went to Options, General Properties.

    Setting Should Say
    Default browser Internet Browser
    Default Font Family BBAlpha Sans
    Default Font Size 10
    Minimum Font Size 10
    Minimum Font Style Plain
    Default View Column (change this here and then when you are in a web page and want to see page view just hit 'z', having this set to column view makes all the difference)

    the next few I left the same, but changed the following:
    Prompt before:
    checked Closing Browser on Escape - made it much easier to close completely
    Closing Modified pages should be checked

    and then saved.

    In the Browser Configuration option, I checked Support JavaScript*, but not allow JavaScript popups*. The rest of the check boxes are checked.

    Mucho better experience!!!

    Hope this helps those of you that didn't already know this.

    Update (9/30/09)
    After having read other posts regarding JavaScript and changing these two settings, I have found that having Support JavaScript NOT selected and optionally check Prompt to enable JavaScript makes the sites come up much faster.

    Holy crow, Pink! You did it! I have tried to increase my font size forever - after changing it to 10 point etc in Options and it still being so teeny tiny. And I have asked how to do what you describe here and nobody has given me a solution.

    You rock! Thanks a ton.

    And here I am posting from my Bold and I can actually read what I am writing - for once.

    I am seriously psyched. Was my only complaint - font size on the browser. Now fixed. Now a perfectly perfect Bold experience.

    I like the "Z" shortcut switching Column/Page.

    All set up and works like a charm... Once again, Good One!
