This occasionally happens in my IE.  Any ideas why?

Do you use the mouse scroll wheel at all?  If you happen to catch the control key at the same time, it changes the text size on many web sites.
Only able to visit the forums sporadically, sorry.

Yes, I frequently use the scroll wheel.  So, I believe you may be quite right.  Thanks.

Good point but I'm OK there.  I'm sure it happened due to hitting the Ctrl key while using the mouse wheel.  I often use the Ctrl key for copy and paste.
