Using an Asus Win 7 laptop and finding the forum subject entries in what looks like a thin face powder blue are too light to read easily. In addition, in Opera and FF the type size for subject and text is very small and with IE11 it's miniscule. And in Windows the dpi setting is 113%. Probably the reason Opera 12/37 are a little better is because I open those programs with a dpi adjustment. OTOH, the sizes and black text color in this edit box and also underneath this box, under "Formatting your text," are good enough and the latter is especially easy to read (I wear progressive lenses that are the proper prescription).

Hi, maybe this helps. I'm using Win7 too with IE11, but Firefox 46.0 is my main browser. I agree with you that the forum in IE is very small. But in Firefox I just installed NoSquint Plus. With this extension you can set the forum pages (and pages for other website) simply by using a +, a - and an 1 key in the upper bar. + and - makes the page bigger and smaller in steps, the 1 resets to standard value. Simply to install, go to addons, search for nosquint plus in the search bar upper right and instal. Maybe worth trying.
