    Is there a way to set the forums to display everything in standard font size?

    Curious, as some like to make their point (or spam) using really big fonts.

    Thanks,

    You could put "G" or "B" on ignore - makes life much more pleasant !

    It's not only them.

    I mentioned the Spam part, as that happens in other parts of Satguys as well. The overuse of large font sizes is annoying to readers.

    I would just like an option that lets me display all the fonts in the standard size.

    Looks like it might be possible to install an editor add-on, to disable the "font size" button, among others...

    Personally, I think a fixed font size for posts would be just fine. Allow bold and italic when people need to make an emphasis.

    Yeah, the editor should cancel-out all caps "shouting" as well...

    Firefox Quantum has an option to override the font. I think the old Firefox may have had this option as well.

    Options->Fonts and colors->Advanced and uncheck the box that says "Allow pages to choose their own fonts".

    I’m trying to remember if I ever saw huge fonts using the Reader app.

    That has been ruled to be discriminatory against lazy people.
     

Separate names with a comma.
