Psychotic G-Mail

In Standard account, when accessing Gmail from Firefox. It is psychotic as the display changes suddenly and automatically without any input; reducing itself (as the graphic shows) into Microscopic size.

I know not what causes this unprovoked change nor how to stop it.

If you have a mac you may have inadvertently use the zoom feature. You can change it back using

I just realized my post/comment from yesterday wasn't received. So I'll try again:

I do not have a mac; but a laptop with Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit.

Please understand that this sudden fluctuation in the screen is unsolicited - it happens with no known prompting from me.  I do not understand. Perhaps I need to uninstall and reinstall both Gmail and browsers. Yes, that is extreme.

Zoom in - <Ctrl><plus>
Zoom out - <Ctrl><minus>
Reset zoom - <Ctrl><zero>
Adjust zoom - <Ctrl><Mouse Wheel>

I looked all over FireFox and couldn't find out WHY the screen was shrinking. I even uninstalled and reinstalled version 23 of Firefox with no remedy.
