    Resolved [RESOLVED] Search Results Showing 1/2 lines

    Noticed today with Search that the results listed were 1/2 lines.
    First line approx top half of font used, Second line approx bottom half of font used.
    Hard to read results.

    I was unable to recreate the issue.... So maybe you could outline the steps you took. (i count three different search tools)

    AND, try adjusting your browser window size and or the font size.

    1) Just using Simple Search in upper Right Corner.
    2) Adjusted Firefox font from 20 to 12, no effect.
    3) Here's what I'm seeing:

    Yeah, no issue in Chrome or Edge.

    No issue for me using Firefox 71.0

    Try the old hold the CTRL key and press either the (-) minus or (+) plus sign...

    I've seen the issue you're seeing but it's been a while and I don't recall if it was here or not.

    Chrome is OK for me.

    Upgraded to Firefox 71.

    Still showing my end.
    Mr. Jones tried the Ctrl (+) or (-) keys for Zooming,
    No effect. Just made it screen bigger or smaller.
    Can live with it -- Just nice to know what's causing it and if it is on my end or yours.

    Last idea - try different screen sizes of your browser... aka FULL Screen AND play with the zooming.

    In MS Word, there are line spacing options to help with this.

    Re: Search Results Showing 1/2 lines

    Prior to your post #9 tried various things in Firefox > Tools > Options > Fonts > Advanced
    Unchecking "Allow pages to choose their own Fonts"
    And
    Reducing "Minimum Font Size" 14 or less

    Solved that problem.

    However -- in my case -- created another as no way to set bold.
    With the smaller fonts (light blue on white background) they are harder to see.
    So dropped to the smallest largest font which gives a bold appearance.

    ====================
    FWIW: It is just the Search Page Returned.
    The Forum Thread pages look fine.

    Thanks for your time and help.
