activex font control

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

My thinkpad R40 2723 recently started to display web pages with small,
probably 8 point, fonts causing the display to be unreadable.  IBM's
solution was to send the unit in.

the only text affected was in the changable text frame, so I started
disabling activex controls.  With most activex control disabled, I regained
normal font size.  I'm pretty brave to tweak till someting is fixed, but not
so brave to reinstall activex controls till I have the same problem again.

Who knows and understands ActiveX?  I don't recall the exact control set I
allowed to be downloaded to cause the problem, but I'm sure it was some
operator fault.  Who can guide me here?

And I now have two IBM shipping boxes.  Hate to just throw them out, but if
I ever do need to ship to IBM, I cannot use an old box.  I could list the
shipping boxes on eBay, But I prefer to offer them to the group here.  They
are large padded box, so shipping (even empty) may not make sense.  Reply
