Is anyone else having problems with Firefox and Stuff website. the fonts are always too small to read and do not resolve nicely. You are forced to do the CTRL+ to get a reasonable sized font which also improves the resolution.
Unfortunately you cannot use the Firefox Options to permanently increase fonts because Stuff ignore the browser and force the small fonts on you.
its a real pain

Quick look at their css shows 12px Arial is being used for most paragraphs of text. Perhaps post a screenshot of what issue you are seeing?

I am comparing standard Firefox4 and IE 9 and the fonts are much clearer and bigger in IE. I realise I can increase the font size manually but of course every time you go out of Stuff and come back you have to increase fonts again. Other sites are fine because I have increased the font size in Firefox options but for some reason Stuff ignores that setting.
I will have a play further. I note there is a lot of chatter on web from others with same problem but no one seems to have a fix for Windows. Linux is easy because you can increase the css file settings
