Is it only the browsers menu font size that appears changed? Not the page font, or any other font sizes on your system? That would be quite odd. The first thing I would try is a System Restore point from before the problem.

As A GUY said, We need more information, As it would be very odd for just the tool bar menus font size to be " too small" yet the rest of the Explorer page is fine.

Try checking what your browsers Zoom size is set to. ( usully 100% )

In Internet Explorer, Click the Tools cog, check the Zoom size isnt any lower then 100%

If the size is affecting you in other windows, ( not just Internet Browsers )
It could be a peronsalization setting:

Start Button, Control Panel - personalization settings, Display.

You will then see 3 options

Small (100%)
Medium (125%)
Large (150%)

However, Small (100%) is the default option in most cases and is usually the best option to have.
If your saying yours is showing lower then 100% then it must be a Internet browser setting.

I had tried to set mine to smaller fonts operating system-wide a few months back. PaleMoon browser did not or could not apply the changes. This week, Norton sent out product patches and after they were applied the smaller fonts appeared in PaleMoon as intended.
