You can guess what my vote will be It's fine nothing wrong with it at all. It's the same as litterally thousands upon thousands of other forums.

Having recently got a pm from dekker sayng he is now able to read the forum with Firefox I believe this issue has now been resolved as it's quite likely from reading his message that it's been a settings problem at his end. Firefox has not got this problem for him apparantly.

Glad we were able to help you there Dekker

Hi Folks.

An interesting thing about my screen res of 1152 + 864 is, at that setting everything on screen fits.

In some apps if I use a lower res I find horizontal scroll bars, and have to mess about with horizontal scrolling.
And before you shout get a decent mouse, my 7 button + scrollwheel cordless mouse is capable of horizontal scrolling.

Add to that Im only using a paltry 17" CRT (which is in pinsharp order) No space for a larger CRT.
I would like a larger TFT type screen, BUT, the ones Iv seen don't appear to be as sharp as my HP CRT.

On a previous PC with a lesser video card I could run at a lower res.

I think my biggest problem is - I still think like a teenager - - - A 67 seven year old one !!!

ImageAt such a high resoloution with a smallish screen like that it's no wonder at all that you were finding it difficult to read.

Basically you're doing all this yourself. you're effectively trying to squeeze a quart into a pint pot.Image

Why on earth are you fiddling arround changing screen resoloutions all the time.Image Use one which is sensible and simply stick to it.

It's a bit like having a car. If you want to drive a Cadillac then you either make sure your garage is big enough to accomodate it or you park it on the road and hope people can squeeze past it. Otherwise get a Ford
