Default Text Size In Firefox And Web Pages Too Small

If you find the default text size in Firefox and webpages too small (or possibly too large) it can be changed easily as follows:

Open Firefox,  click on 'Tools', 'Options'
On the window which opens, click on the 'Content' tab
In the 'Fonts and Colours' panel, change the value in the 'Size' box and then click 'OK'

The normal default is 16 points but it can be changed to any value by highlighting the figure in the box and typing in the required new value or by clicking on the down arrow at the right end of the box and selecting one of the values (8 to 72) listed.


Sending Emails With Large Attachments

I have had several requests recently from some of our members who have had trouble sending emails with large attachments exceeding 10MB and the following could help resolve the problem

ISPs in general will not permit the total size of an email plus attachments to exceed 10MB. To overcome this problem and to be able to send large attachments(s) to someone, there is a very good free web-service called TransferBIGFiles.com. It enables you to send files of up to 1GB to an email recipient. It is exceptionally easy to use and although still in Beta, appears very safe and reliable.
